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:
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.
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.
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?
