If your AC is not working the way you want it to and you are worried about the cost of a new AC. Maybe you have considered getting a used AC. Stop! Please don’t! Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning knows that it could be tempting to want a less expensive AC. But getting a used AC will come with so many more problems. So, let’s talk about why buying a used AC is not a good idea.
An AC Warranty Cannot Transfer to a Different Premises
If you buy a used AC, the AC Warranty will not transfer with you. A warranty cannot go to a different household. That may not be a problem, except if something happens then you will have to pay completely out of pocket because your warranty will not cover the repairs.
Limited Service Life of AC Unit
An AC typically has a life span of between 10-15 years. When you get a used AC you don’t know what maintenance was done on the used unit. You don’t know how well it was taken care of. It could’ve already had many repairs done that you don’t know about. Yes, it could be working just fine right now, but for how long? Even a unit that is 7 or 8 years old may already be close to breaking down. So, you could spend all that money on an AC and only get a few years out of it.
Undersized or Oversized AC Unit Size
You want to make sure when you buy an AC you get the right size. If you are buying a used one and the size is not perfect it won’t work as well. If it is too large or too small for your home, it won’t be efficient in cooling your home. When you buy an AC the whole purpose is to help keep your home cooled. If it’s the wrong size and it’s not cooling your home correctly then it is not worth buying the AC that you just bought.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
The older your AC gets, the dirtier it can get. An older AC system has likely picked up plenty of dirt and dust over time. When you get a used AC it can be dirty. Not only can it be dirty it can also have other contaminants from the original house that could transfer to your indoor air. Do you really want someone else’s dirt or whatever was in their home air going through your home?

Something that you might not know is that no reputable HVAC company installs used equipment. This is because they know it’s a poor investment. Buying a used AC means dealing directly with a seller who wants cash upfront which is a high risk. If no company will install a used HVAC then do you really think it is a good idea to get one?
