Replacing your Air Conditioning Unit vs. Repairing It
When is it time to replace it?
YOU are the one who will be making the decision. Therefore factors such as finance and comfort will come into play. The best time to replace your air conditioning unit is when you are planning on it rather than when the system fails. The normal life span of a unit is usually between 10-15 years for the compressor in an outdoor unit. The air handler will usually last between 10 to 12 years. Having to repair your AC is an expensive exercise. You will need to consider whether it may prove more cost effective for you to replace your unit rather than repair it.
Benefits of an air conditioning unit replacement
New AC units are more efficient with innovative comfort features that give you better results at a better cost. These factors could determine whether you should replace your old air conditioner or repair it. However, money will probably be your deciding factor if you still have a unit that has not yet completely failed.
Whether you will replace or repair your air conditioning unit will most probably depend on your financial position, comfort and environmental needs. Just remember that if you have to repair your AC and it is going to cost you more than a third for a new one, it will probably be more cost effective to replace it.
