When trouble begins to plague your aging air conditioning system, it can be difficult to know whether to make repairs or to invest in a new unit. Naturally, you can rely on Comfort Control techs to help you make that decision, but here are a few useful things to keep in mind as you determine whether to repair or replace.
Benefits of AC Repair
One of the first benefits of repair is associated with cost. It’s usually less expensive to make repairs on your unit than purchase a brand new AC system. This is especially true if you haven’t gotten at least half your value out of the system. Repairs on any unit are inevitable, and many are simply maintenance costs. If your budget is tight, you might want to make repairs, but start saving up for your unit’s eventual replacement.

Sometimes repairs make excellent investments. Certain repairs can increase the longevity of your unit so that you get even more value out of it. Don’t forget that many repairs are simply due to normal wear and tear. Replacing a belt, for example, doesn’t indicate that your AC unit is on its way out.
Benefits of Replacement
If you AC unit begins to break down during peak season and is already old, you should consider replacement. Repair costs can add up and summer downtime can prove extremely frustrating during those excessively hot days. Although a new unit will require more upfront costs, you can avoid all those costly service calls that are cutting into your overall budget.
A new AC unit can also lead to greater cost savings on your energy bills. If you have been pampering your aged unit, you might be paying more for energy than you would with a brand new, energy-saving model. Your service tech can help you calculate your electricity costs should you go with a brand new, energy-efficient model.
Reliability and Comfort
Choosing to replace your air conditioning unit might reduce your stress level once you have a unit you can rely on–even on those extremely warm days. If your current unit keeps breaking down and is compromising the comfort you want for your home, you might begin researching new models for an eventual replacement.
