When to replace
One of the biggest challenges homeowners face with an aging AC unit is knowing when to repair vs. replace. The older the system is, the more sense it makes to replace—generally speaking. When considering AC replacement, questions to ask yourself include:
How often am I making repairs? Are the costs exceeding what I’d pay for a new system?
How efficiently is my system working? Am I paying significantly more for cooling this year than I did this time last year?
Will my next repair cost me over half of what an AC replacement would?
