We work with a lot of people who have been told that they probably need a new air conditioner. Sometimes, this is correct. Other times, we find that we can repair their existing air conditioning in Manassas, VA, and save them the hassle and the expense of installing a new one. Here are some guiding principles if you’re wondering whether you should choose AC repair or AC replacement right now.
Most air conditioners last somewhere between 10 and 15 years. If yours is more than 15 years old and it’s not working well, it’s probably time to get a new one. If you’re replacing an AC unit that old, you may be surprised at how much better your new AC unit cools your home and at how much money it saves you every month.
There’s a fairly complicated formula that we use to determine whether it would be better for you to repair your air conditioner or replace it. You can multiply the cost you were quoted for air conditioning repair by the number of years that you’ve had the unit. If that is more than the cost of replacing it, it’s probably better to get a new one. If that number is less than the cost of air conditioning replacement, we’ll recommend that you choose AC repair instead.
If your air conditioning isn’t cooling well, chances are good that replacing it is your best option. It may be too small for your home or you may not have enough insulation for it to be able to keep up. Either way, the best way for you to cool down again fast is to replace it with a new AC unit that is larger or works more efficiently.
If you are paying more for energy with every passing month, or at least during the summer, your air conditioner isn’t working as efficiently as it could. We can come to test it for you and see if there’s anything we can do to help it out, but this is usually a good indication that it’s time to buy a new unit.

Friendly and courteous, went beyond the initial problem to check all factors that may have contributed to my heating issue. Joe took several extra steps to isolate the issue and spent the necessary time to check all factors, from thermostat to element.
