Considerations for Replacing Your Air Conditioner
“Do I repair or replace my AC?” is an age-old question that we’re here to answer. We consider several things, including age, operational efficiency, the price of replacement versus repairing, before determining the best course of action for you.
Age of Your AC
Your air conditioner has an average lifespan of 10-15 years. You can keep an older air conditioner going for the maximum operational life with routine maintenance. If you’re unsure of the age of your unit, you can retrieve this information from its serial number, or it may be abbreviated as MFR DATE. Your manufacturer’s manual should specify the location of your AC’s manufacturer date.
To decipher the serial number and find the age, you’ll likely have corresponding letters and numbers representing the manufactured month, year, and fiscal week. Your manual will help you decode your serial number to determine the age of your AC system. Our HVAC service professionals can also help you locate the correct information for the exact date.
Are your energy bills increasing? Is your air conditioner not working as efficiently as it used to? It may be time for an AC replacement immediately. A malfunctioning and inefficient cooling system affects the comfort of your home and air quality, which can put your family’s health at risk. Our technicians thoroughly inspect and determine the cause of your air conditioner issues. We create a plan for a resolution that could include replacement if the problems are severe.
Repair and Replacement Pricing
Let’s be honest. Everyone wants to know how much a replacement or repair will cost before it’s performed, and that’s expected. A general rule that we follow in determining whether to replace or repair is the price of both. If replacing is equivalent to or less than repairing your air conditioner, it’s time to consult our professional HVAC service specialists in Waynesville, MO, for help.
