The beautiful Conway area is known for its wonderful architecture featuring many older homes with unique designs unlike anywhere else along the Grand Strand.

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.

Conway Air Conditioning Unit - Replacement or Repair?

How old is the unit?

Conway AC Repair and Maintenance

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.

Our team of specialists at Swift Services can help you decide if your Conway air conditioning unit can be repaired or needs to be replaced. Contact us today at 843-213-6810 or send us a message. Our team of technicians is familiar with the area and has been helping residents of Conway, South Carolina for many years.

Review of Swift Services Heating & Cooling

Once I discussed replacement vise repair the mini-split, things seem to progress rather quickly. The installers showed up on time and quickly removed the old system and installed the new one. My only complaint is the installers were not trained on how to setup the operations of the new mini-split. I wanted to know how to setup the automatic heating/cooling feature. The installer said he didn't know how to do this and handed me the operating instructions and told me to read this. I tried to setup the features but had no luck.


Response from Swift Services Heating & Cooling:

Hi Danny, Did y6ou call up to the office and ask for a technician to come out? If this si somethign you still need assistance with we would lvoe to help you. Thanks.

Upon arrival I greeted the customer and started my work. I first cheked the filters and set the t stat to heat. I then inspected the air handler. I found everything I be in working order. I stated by cleaning the coil and testing the float switch, after that I monitored all electrical components amp reading on heat kit was up to manufacturing specs. Air purification system seem to be working at this time. After that I made my way down to the condencer while at the condencer I cheked refrigerant pressures, monitored all electrical components, and tested defrost cycle. I also tested the start up amps, start up amps were at 122. After talking with the home owner we decided to install a hard start kit to bring down the start up amps and to preserve the compressor winding. System is operating normally at this time.

Apon arrival I greeted the customer and started my work. I first inspected the air handler where I found that the HEPA filter needs to be Changed. After that I opened up the air handler and saw that the insulation had come off the cabinet and got sucked into the indoor fan motor. After rescuing it with tape and spray glue I continued my maintenance. I then clean the coil, dropped algiside tablets in the pan and tested the float switch. I then checked all electrical component, static pressure and got a delta T-23. I then went outside to check the condencer. I found that the refrigerant pressures were within manufacturing specs. And all electrical components tested fine cap tested 31 manufacturing specs 30. System is operating normally at this time.

Upon arrival I greeted the customer and started my maintenance. I first started by seeking the system to heat and checking the air filter. (Air filter is dirty at this time and home owner does not have new one. We recomemd replacing the filter asap) during my maintenance I cleaned the coils, added algiside tablets, cheked static pressures, cheked out all electrical components (heat kit had good amp draw) and got a delta T of 72. After that I made my way down stairs to inspect the condenser. I on found that the refrigerant pressures were good and the defrost cycle worked well. I then inspected all of the electrical components. Everything cheked out ok. ( cap tested 33/5 manufacturing specs 35/5) I also cleaned off out door unit. System operating normally at this time. I recommend a hard start kit for this system due to high amp draw at start up. Start up amps is 60. Customer will Pay by phone with office
