Should You Repair or Replace Your Air Conditioner
It is essential to ensure that your AC is fit and ready to keep you cool, calm, and collected.
If you have had your air con for a while and it’s not performing the way it used to, you may wonder whether it is better to get it repaired or replace it altogether.
The last thing you want is a bad decision on your hands with such a big investment. And because there are so many variables to consider when looking at an air con system, the choice is not easy.
Run through our top three questions to ask to understand whether you would benefit from an air con replacement, or if a repair and service is the best choice for you.
How old is your air conditioner?
One of the first things you need to learn is how old your AC really is. If your system is older than ten years old, it might just be time to move on to a new one.
Of course, there are factors other than age, which should also be considered. However, the number of years the system has been operating is a good indicator as to whether you should start thinking about something new or not.
In most cases, you can find the age of your AC with an inspection sticker located on the front or side of the equipment. Otherwise, call a technician.
Most of the time, our technicians can locate the age simply off of the serial number on your AC.
How energy efficient is your air conditioner?
If you have had your air conditioner for a while, then chances are it does not operate at maximum energy efficiency. This means that it could be costing you a lot more to operate than it should.
Not only do older systems lose their efficiency over time, but, newer air conditioners offer more advanced, cost-saving technology. This is something you should consider before you opt for a cheaper repair, rather than a new air conditioner.
There is a number of online tools that you can use to assess how much your air conditioner is costing you as well as how much you can save when you buy a new one.
How much will it cost?
While age and energy efficiency are important, you will always be thinking about the end cost of repairing and replacing your air conditioner.
If your system is more than 10 years old and is set to cost more than $700 to repair, we recommend that you seriously consider replacement as the better option.
It should also be noted that repairs continue to add up over the years of ownership, being a high cost over time. It is also important, however, to consider your budget and other priorities.
Importance of Using a Certified & Qualified Installer
As with any trade, is extremely important to work with a certified and qualified air con breakdown and repair service to ensure peace of mind during the entire process.
Licensed repairers carry an ARCtick number, meaning they are qualified to handle the dangerous materials involved with air con units.
This also means they are fully qualified to advise on how the system works, general upkeep, and formulate preventative maintenance plans.
We have fully licensed air con servicers (and electrical specialists) with years of hands-on, industry experience. We’re located in Sydney, and we service the greater metropolitan area, including the Eastern Suburbs, Lower North Shore, and South West.
