Should I Have My A/C Repaired or Replaced?

With warmer weather in the forecast, homeowners all across the Twin Cities
will be turning their central air conditioning systems on in the near
future. And although they’re never welcomed, problems are inevitable.
It’s difficult to tell if you should try to have the issue repaired
or if it makes more sense to replace your system entirely, but we’re
laying some of the groundwork down below to help you make an educated decision:

Age

Before you start looking around for a repair specialist, consider the age
of your current system. Most air conditioning systems only last 10 to
12 years so if yours is approaching this time frame, you can expect additional
repairs in the future. The bottom line? If your system is more than 10
years old, it might be worthwhile to have it replaced.

Technology

Do you still have the same cell phone you had 10+ years ago? Technology
is changing virtually every day and you better believe most systems on
the market now are more advanced than they were a decade ago. By deciding
to replace your old system, you’ll be able to experience smart features
and increased efficiency.

Repair Costs

It’s never a bad idea to get a few opinions on the matter before
making a decision. If the cost of repairs is less than 50% of the cost
of a new system, you may want to go ahead with the repair. If the cost
is greater, why not have a brand new system installed?
