How to Know if You Need AC Repair or AC Replacement

Determining whether your air conditioning system needs repair or a complete replacement can be stressful and confusing. However, understanding the signs and considering certain factors can help you make the right choice for your home or business. 

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Age of your AC system: The age of your AC unit plays a crucial role in deciding whether to repair or replace it. The average lifespan of an air conditioning system is about 10 to 15 years. If your unit is nearing or has surpassed this age range, it might be more cost-effective to opt for a replacement, especially if it requires frequent repairs.
  • Frequent and costly repairs: When determining whether to repair or replace, you should consider how often your AC system has needed repairs in the recent past. You will also need to review the overall cost of these repairs. If your system is constantly breaking down, requiring costly repairs, or if a single repair costs close to 50% of the price of a new system, investing in a new AC might be the smarter option.
  • Energy efficiency and utility bills: Older or malfunctioning AC units tend to be less energy-efficient, leading to higher utility bills. If you notice a significant increase in your energy costs during the cooling season, it could be a sign that your system is not operating efficiently. Upgrading to a newer, more energy-efficient model can reduce your energy consumption and save money on bills over time.
  • Performance and comfort: If your AC system struggles to maintain a consistent temperature, leaving some rooms too hot or too cold or taking too long to cool down a space, it could be on the verge of failing. When repairs no longer seem to improve the performance of your AC system, replacement may be the best course of action.
  • Refrigerant type: The refrigerant your AC uses should be a factor in your decision. Older systems that rely on R-22 refrigerant (Freon) are facing a phase-out due to environmental regulations. Since R-22 is becoming increasingly scarce and expensive, repairing a leak or servicing an older unit using Freon might not be cost-effective. Upgrading to a new system that uses a more environmentally friendly refrigerant is advisable.
  • Consider future needs: Consider your future needs, including home renovations, expansions, or changes in how you use your space. A new AC system can be tailored to meet these evolving demands, ensuring optimal comfort and efficiency.

Deciding between AC repair and replacement involves weighing your system's current condition and performance against the cost and benefits of a new installation. Our Van Nuys AC repair team can provide valuable insights and help you make the best choice for your home and budget.
