If you're trying to decide what can be wrong with your HVAC system and how to proceed, read some of the tips below from our experts at Swift Services.
How old is the unit?
As with any appliance, the older it gets the higher the chance of breakdown. Most air conditioning units are designed to last anywhere from 10 to 20 years. Depending on the brand and maintenance the problems may start when the system is only 10 years old. If visits from your air conditioning repair professional become more and more frequent you might want to consider getting a new unit.
Industry experts have a simple way to calculate the cost of repair vs. replacement. What they do is multiply the cost of repair by the age of a unit. For example, if the cost of repair was $250 and the unit is 10 years old the result would be $2,500. That means the repair of the unit is justified if it's below $5,000 (an average cost of a new unit). A result over $5,000 would signify you may be better off investing in a new unit.
Is it energy efficient?
Many homeowners make a mistake by assuming they save a lot of money since they've kept the same AC unit for 15 years. In reality, if you compare your energy bills over the years you may discover that you've been paying more each year for electricity. If that's the case you should consider replacing the old AC unit in the near future.
Many of our customers are quite often astonished at how much their electric bill dropped after replacing their air conditioning unit. With the constantly advancing technology, the ENERGY STAR HVAC equipment today is way more energy efficient than elements produced 10 or 15 years ago.
Would replacing just a part of the system solve the problem?
Even if your Conway air conditioning unit is an older model it may not necessarily mean you should get a new one as soon as you realize something doesn't work right. If your unit doesn't keep up with cooling down your house your HVAC unit may not be the one to blame. Many times, especially in older homes, there are big air leaks and possibly a damaged duct system which needs to be fixed. You should call your ac and heating professional to help you evaluate the real source of the problem.
