Repairing vs. Replacing Your Air Conditioner
Is it Time to Get a New System?
If you have spent more on your AC in the last year than it's worth, it's probably time to replace it. Repeated fixes for similar problems just put a bandage on the underlying issue, allowing another problem to crop up. Maybe your unit is too old, or maybe you got a lemon - it's hard to know when to keep fixing it or when to give up for good.
The Surfin' Plumbers, Heating & Cooling want to save you money. We help you understand when a unit is worth fighting for and when a unit has taken its last fighting stance.
It May Be Time to Replace the AC If Any of the Following Are True
Signs that your AC is on its last leg include:
- Units aged more than 10 years
- Extremely high utility bills
- Loud noises that don't stop after repeat adjustment
- Unit not turning on despite multiple fixes
- Leaking coolant and inability to maintain refrigerant
- Your plans for long-term stay in your residence
Conducting Full Inspections & Providing Annual Maintenance Appointments
Each time we service your unit, we become more familiar with its quirks and ticks. With regular maintenance, we can usually prolong the lifespan of even the most finicky air conditioner. We do not want you to have to prematurely replace your air conditioning unit and to go great lengths to ensure that is truly the best option for your household.
If your system is less than 10 years old, it has been properly maintained, and it is a good brand, we can usually mend it for a longer life. Units that haven't been cared for or are cheaper models might end up costing you more in the long run.
