Should You Repair or Replace Your Old Air Conditioner?

Posted on: March 4, 2014

Should You Repair or Replace Your Old Air Conditioner?

With the warm weather just around the corner in the Chicagoland area, many homeowners with older AC systems are weighing the benefits of repairing and maintaining their older unit versus purchasing a newer, more reliable system.

The old saying “if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it.” makes sense for a lot things around the home, but for energy intensive systems like air conditioners, putting off a new system could be costing you more in the long run.

The EPA suggest that homeowners replace their air conditioner if it’s beyond 10 years old. The reason is new air conditioners are much more efficient that system installed over a decade ago. How much can you expect to save on your energy bill? With a newer, high efficiency system you could save up to 56% on your cooling costs.

Here are a couple of other reasons to consider replacing your old air conditioner.

1. Your air conditioner is in need of frequent repairs and your energy costs are rising as it has become worn out and less efficient.

2. It’s LOUD! Newer air conditioners operate at variable-speeds to cool your home more quietly in most situations.
