Repair or Replace your Air Conditioner?
Updated: Aug 8, 2020
Is your air conditioner not keeping you as cool as it used to? It may be worth replacing instead of repairing and here is why.
So much has changed in recent years and manufacturers must use a new kind of refrigerant that is not ozone depleting—better for environment. As well as a new system can use less than half the electricity of your old one while doing better job of keeping you cool and comfortable. The older systems operate at a below 10 SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio), which is the amount of energy needed to provide a specific cooling output. Until 2006, 10 SEER was standard, but now the current minimum allowed by Federal Law is 13 SEER. What does that mean for you? The 13+ SEER rating translates to minimum 30% less electrical consumption and lower cooling bills.
If your air conditioner is more than eight years old, repair is probably not worth the expense, unless it's a simple problem like debris clogging the condenser unit or a worn fan belt. Still, to best weigh your repair-or-replace decision, ask a Service Hero to assess not just the condition of your existing equipment, but also the ducts that deliver the cool air and the overall quality of the insulation in your house. Improving those elements might increase the effectiveness of the system as much or more than installing a new system.
