Air Conditioning Repairs vs. Replacement

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 conditioner 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 repairs or A/C replacement right now.

Replace Your Air Conditioner If:

It is More than 15 Years Old

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 air conditioner 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.

The Repair Cost is Too High

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 AC repairs 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 conditioner replacement, choose to repair instead.

You Are Too Hot at Home

If your air conditioner 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.

Your Energy Bills Keep Going Up

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 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.

At Turner’s Service, we can help you decide between air conditioning repairs vs. replacement. We’ll work with you to make sure you have the cooling capacity you need this summer! Give us a call or schedule online now!

    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.

    We woke up on this cold morning with a broken furnace. Called Turners and they were out within a couple hours, found the issue, and repaired immediately. So pleased we won’t have to suffer the cold with no heat! Tim was awesome, super friendly, and would welcome his work anytime!
