Should I Repair or Replace My Home’s Air Conditioner?

When temperatures rise and no natural respite from the humid, sweltering summer is near, it’s up to your home’s air conditioner to take care of you and ensure that you and your family stay cool and comfortable. However, even the most well-kept AC unit will fail eventually (although regular preventative air conditioner maintenance will definitely stave off that day!), and when it does, you need to be prepared to solve the problem.

So how do you know if your AC needs to be repaired or replaced? Before you decide whether or not you should repair or replace your old air conditioner, ask yourself these questions:

• Is my AC unit close to 10 years old (or older)?
• Have my recent air conditioner repair expenses started to add up to the expense of a new one?
• Is my AC missing the features of a modern unit, like a programmable thermostat?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, it’s probably time to have your air conditioner replaced. A new air conditioner should help decrease your energy bills, reduce your impact on the environment, provide enhanced comfort, and give you more options that are specific to your lifestyle, rather than providing a one-size-fits-all solution.

If you would like to have your AC replaced by experienced technicians who will install your unit and back it up with a one year “Test Drive” program, contact National Heating and Air Conditioning to schedule an appointment today!

What If I Just Need AC Repair?

You may need your AC repaired if you have climbing energy bills without increased usage of your unit, your unit doesn’t cool your home as well as it used to, you smell unusual odors for a prolonged period of time, or you hear odd sounds like banging, clanking, or grinding coming for your air conditioner.

Any one of these problems can usually be fixed if it is addressed right away; however, if those problems are not attended to in a prompt manner, they could lead to much larger issues that could result in the need for an AC replacement.
