If you go to turn on your air conditioner and it does not work most people start panicking. Even if you are handy and can fix many different things in your home air conditioners might overwhelm you. Fixing an air conditioner can indeed be daunting. Thankfully you can give Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning a call and we can come and help you. We can help you take a look at your unit and decide if it is time to replace or repair it.
Age of Central Air Conditioner
As you try to decide if you should replace or repair your air conditioning system there are some different things that you will want to think about. First you will want to look at how old your unit is. If your unit is most than 10 years old you should consider replacing it. Even though one of our technicians might be able to repair it you will lose efficiency with an older unit and it will cost you more money to run your unit.
Frequent AC Repairs
You will also need to think about how many repairs have been necessary over the past few years. If you have had consistent repairs it might be time to replace your air conditioning unit as well. Many times people will keep doing repairs because it is cheaper than replacing the unit. Unfortunately though if you add up all of the repairs you might see that you have actually spent more money than if you just purchased a brand new unit. So if you have a costly repair to make you may want to consider simply replacing your unit instead.
Noisy Air Conditioner Compressor
Other common reasons for people to consider purchasing a new air conditioning unit instead of repairing their existing one is if your unit is noisy or you have uneven temperatures in your home when you run your air conditioner. This could indicate that you need to purchase a new unit. Another reason is noise. As parts of your air conditioning unit bet older they will start making noises. Noises coming from your air conditioner are never a sign that anything good is happening.
AC Unit Size Calculator
If you think that you are better off replacing your unit instead of repairing it you will have some other decisions to make still. You will need to decide how big of a unit to purchase. You will want to look at the square footage of your home when determining what size of air conditioning system will work best for your home. As a rule of thumb you can expect one ton of air conditioning to cool about 400 to 600 square feet. You can use this number to see what kind of unit is best for your home. If you have a larger home you may have more than one unit.
