When Are Repairs No Longer An Option?

Couple looking at bills

The fact that you are researching new air conditioners in the middle of August doesn’t bode well. But, thankfully, you aren’t without help.

Needing an air conditioning replacement in Miami, FL is something that needs to be taken care of as quickly as possible. After all, no one wants to be with a good cooling system during the hottest parts of summer.

But maybe you are hesitating about booking a replacement because you are trying to keep things going with repairs. Expert repairs are a great way to help your AC unit last, but it still won’t last forever.

Here are some signs that it is time to give up on repairs and just get that new AC unit installed.

5 Signs That AC Repairs Aren’t Worth It

Debating between yet another system repair and a system replacement? That repair may not be worth it if you are encountering any of the following trouble.

1. The repairs have become a yearly occurrence

Repairs are normal but they shouldn’t be frequent. If you are starting to notice that you need AC repairs on a yearly basis or, even, worse, more than once a year, you really need to get your AC replaced. This unit is on its way to a breakdown and your money is better spent on a better one.

2. The repairs could pay for half of a new system

Speaking of money, how much are you spending on your AC repairs? If the cost of your repair could pay for half or more of the price of a new air conditioner, then you are better off investing in a new system. Otherwise, your money is going to waste on a system that isn’t paying you back for what you give it.

You can always reference our information on the average price of getting a new air conditioning unit on our website too.

3. Your AC unit is getting towards 15 years old

How old is your air conditioner? If you have a system that is only a few years old, you can likely get by with a repair. However, if your AC is over 10 years old and creeping towards, or even passing 15 years old, you’ll be better off with a repair. After a certain age, the system is on borrowed time and absorbs more energy and funds than it ends up being worth.

4. The system is never able to cool the house properly

Your air conditioner needs to be able to cool your home. But if your system has gotten maintenance and repairs and it is still unable to cool the house reliably or properly, then you should work on starting the replacement process. What you have at this point is an overpriced fan.

5. Energy bills make the AC too expensive to run

Last but not least, don’t forget your energy bills! If running your AC creates an energy bill so expensive that you can’t afford to use the system, then you are better off investing in a new unit instead. We even offer financing options to make the new system easier to get.

Do any of these signs sound familiar? If so, then it is time to let your AC go and get a system replacement. You can always come to our team to have your air conditioner assessed and have an expert figure out whether you need a repair or a replacement, too.
