Repair vs. Replacement: When Does AC Installation Make More Sense?
We're certain that no one really jumps for joy at the thought of having to replace their air conditioning system, but the reality is that there are plenty of instances where it makes more sense to buy a new system than to keep throwing money at an old one that isn't keeping you cool.
Old air conditioning systems that are nearing the end of their lifespans use up a ton of energy, which means they cost you more money to run as your indoor comfort declines. While it may be tempting to just repair your AC, it's important to recognize the signs that replacement is imminent.
Consider replacing your air conditioner if:
- The cost to repair the system will be more than half of what it's currently worth
- The system is more than 10 or 15 years old and needs frequent repairs
- Your energy bills keep rising, but your home is still too warm and/or humid
- Your AC still uses R-22 refrigerant, which is no longer manufactured due to new EPA regulations
Is Central Air Conditioning Installation Right for Your Home?
One of the most important aspects of installing a system like this is doing the necessary homework ahead of time. The design phase is crucial to setting your air conditioning system up for success – improper handling at this stage can result in poor performance, inefficiency, imbalanced load, increased need for repairs, and shortened system lifespan.
When preparing for an AC installation, we take many factors into account to ensure that we choose the correct system, including:
- Property size
- Quality of wall and ceiling insulation
- Occupant generated loads
- Local climate
How Do You Air Condition a Home Without Ductwork?
Central air conditioning is certainly not your only air conditioning option, particularly if you live in an older home that does not have ductwork. Instead of spending thousands of dollars on installing air ducts that you may not really need, you may wish to consider ductless AC installation. Ductless air conditioning is a great way to make your home more comfortable while also enjoying customized zone control and energy efficiency.
How Long Does an AC System Last?
An air conditioning system typically has a lifespan of 10-15 years in optimal conditions. To ensure that your AC unit lasts for as long as possible, it's important to have regular maintenance done and follow the manufacturer's instructions for caring for your unit.
During regular maintenance, a HVAC technician will change out filters, check electrical connections, inspect the blower motor, lubricate all moving parts, and clean the condenser coils. An annual tune-up and routine check-up can also help to identify any problems with your unit before they become more serious and expensive to repair.
Additionally, being mindful of how you use your AC system can improve its longevity. For example, you should avoid turning it off and on frequently, because this can cause more wear and tear. You should also take care to avoid overtaxing the system by using settings that are too high or too low.
