Pros and Cons of Repairing vs Replacing Your Air Conditioner
Your first instinct may be to repair any issues you are having with your HVAC system. Although many times, a simple repair is all you need to keep your Sarasota home comfortable, other times it is not the best option. Consider all the factors before deciding whether you need to repair or replace your air conditioner.
Repairing Your Unit
The first thing to consider is the age of your unit. If your unit is fairly new, then typically repairing it is a no brainer. If your unit is older or nearing the end of its lifespan, then you may need to think harder about this decision. Consider how often you have needed to repair your unit. If you have had regular maintenance and this is the first repair, then there isn’t much reason to think about replacing your unit yet. However, if something is seriously wrong with your air conditioner, it is not impossible that it might still need to be replaced. It is a good idea to consult with your technician so that you can understand your options.
Replacing Your Unit
If there are safety concerns, it’s best to err on the side of caution and consider replacing your unit. If your furnace is not operating efficiently, it may be best to replace it. The other main thing to think about is the cost. Replacing your unit is an investment, but you see savings on your monthly utility bills. You should also analyze how much it will cost to repair your unit and whether you can expect more repairs in the future. Repairs add up quickly, and if your unit is likely to need more work in the near future, then it may be worth the money to upgrade now.
