Do You Own Testing Equipment?

You can arrange for regular maintenance for your HVAC system and air conditioning units. This will keep it in prime condition, and any repairs will probably be minimal because any difficulties will be noticed at an early stage.
Your air conditioning systems rely on sufficient electrical power which is passed through a variety of components to provide the results that keep you cool in summer and warm in winter.

Should You Replace or Repair Your Current A/C system?

As the days get longer and the cooler winter temperatures give way to the much-welcomed warmer spring days, you’ll no doubt start turning on your air conditioning system a bit more regularly.

But what happens when your current system is having problems keeping up, or even worse, in need of major repairs? Major repairs can be quite costly, but so can an entire replacement, which is why it is imperative to consider the following when deciding which route to take to ensure the comfort of your home or business.

How Major is the Repair?

The equipment that has malfunctioned, time required to repair, and overall costs are the top factors that need to be considered. Typically, if repair costs exceed $2,000 and have required constant repair costs over the years, it might be a better investment to replace the A/C system. If the system is still relatively new (less than 5 years old) and the repair costs are under $1000, repairing the equipment may be a more practical solution.

What is the Age of the Current System?

If your current system is over 15 years old and needs a major, costly repair, it should go without saying that spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on repairs will likely be a waste of money. The equipment may be nearing the end of its life and will have to be replaced sometime soon. The Department of Energy has stated there is an average inflation rate of 5% on HVAC equipment in the United States, so a new system that may costs you $7,000 today could end up costing you at least $7,350 next year. There is also the issue of the current system’s refrigerant. The refrigerant R-22 that was widely used for the last 30 years is being phased out by the Environmental Protection Agency which makes the costs of servicing and re-filling refrigerant lines a costly endeavor.

Is Your Current System Running Up Your Utility Bill?

HVAC systems have efficiency ratings known as Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratios (SEER) ratings, much like the way your car’s fuel efficiency is rated in Miles Per Gallon. Older systems (10-15 years) can range between 8-12 SEER when manufactured, but lose efficiency over the years as mechanical equipment inevitably does. Today’s systems SEER ratings can range from 14 to the low 20s, which lead to increased short and long-term energy savings. The savings associated with improved efficiency can almost always be a better investment than repairing older, inefficient systems.
