Do I Need an AC Repair or a New Unit?

August 24, 2021 | Blog

Is your air conditioning unit having problems? Sometimes it can be difficult to tell if it’s a simple problem that a quick repair can fix or if you’ll need to get a new AC unit altogether. How do you go about making that decision? How can you tell when your AC unit has outlived its usefulness? There is no easy answer. But, there are different things to consider before making a decision on whether to repair or replace. Efficient Systems has a few ways to help you make up your mind on such a big decision.

How Old Is Your AC Unit?

This is the first thing you should consider when deciding between an AC replacement or an AC repair. It is recommended that air conditioning units over 10 years old should be replaced with newer and more efficient models. The older the unit, the less efficient it becomes and usually has a lower SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratios) than newer models. The recommended SEER rating has changed over the years, so your older AC unit may not meet the federal minimum efficiency standards.

If your air conditioning unit is too old and it’s time for it to retire, Efficient Systems has been serving Beaumont and Southeast Texas since 1979! When looking for an AC installation company, it’s important to find reliable and trustworthy services. Lucky for you, you’re in the right place! We are reliable and dedicated to giving our clients quality units that are installed correctly the first time around.

Does Your AC Unit Need Constant Repairs?

If your AC unit is always having problems, this could be another sign it’s time to get a new one. You’ll be spending more money on constant repairs than you would if you invested in a new unit altogether. If your unit is failing to cool the entire house properly or running very loudly, it may be time to retire your unit. It is normal for your air conditioning unit to need some minor repairs here and there. But, consult your AC technician if you’re unsure.

Tip: Having regular preventative maintenance appointments with a trusted professional can help your AC unit run more efficiently for a longer period of time.

How Efficient Is Your System?

Is your AC unit not cooling your home evenly? Does it seem to run forever? Are your energy bills climbing higher and higher? This can all be because your AC unit isn’t running efficiently. You may want to consider replacing the unit if this is the issue. While replacing your air conditioning unit can be pricey, a more efficient system can end up saving you money in the long run. But, if you aren’t ready to part with your current system, there are some things you might be able to add. Consult with your AC technician and see what options are available to you.
