Is your air conditioner on its last legs? There comes a time when every homeowner must decide if they should keep pouring money into costly AC repairs just to get through one more season, or if it’s best to just let go of the unit. Before you commit to a temporary fix, consider the many benefits when you replace your air conditioner instead.
The costs associated with repairing your AC unit can add up pretty quickly over the years. There’s also never a guarantee that the repairs you have done will keep the unit operating for an extended period of time. The most common time for AC units to break down – especially those with preexisting problems – is during the hottest days of the summer. If you’re lucky a technician will be able to get out to you quickly to replace your unit, but the reality is you’ll likely join a long list of others who are in the same boat. The peace of mind alone of knowing your unit is reliable is worth the upfront cost of replacing your air conditioner instead of repairing it and hoping for the best.
Unlike repairs, the money you spend on a new unit is an investment in efficiency. If your AC is more than ten years old, you will see a huge improvement in your monthly utility bills if you replace it. Advancements in technology have also significantly increased the SEER ratings of residential units, which means you can improve the comfort of your home and save money.
Another benefit of replacing your AC unit is that it will come with a new warranty. Some companies like Daikin offer limited warranties on parts and replacements that last for up to twelve years. When you consider how much it would cost you to repair your unit for twelve years, purchasing a new unit with a valid warranty is a no brainer. A lot of homeowners are hesitant to replace their air conditioner because of the cost, but there are a number of financing options and promotions available to help ease the financial stress of buying a new unit.
