AC Replace or AC Repair? That Is the Question!

AC REPLACE OR AC REPAIR? THAT IS THE QUESTION!

When your AC system falters or even breaks down and you need to call Tampa air conditioning companies, do you have it repaired or do you replace it? It’s not always a clear cut decision. Here are some things to consider which will hopefully make that decision a little easier to make.

THE COST OF THE AC REPLACE TAMPA

Generally, if the cost of the repair is more than 40 percent of the cost of replacing the entire system, that’s a very good indicator that you would be best replaced with a brand new system. To spend nearly half the cost (or more depending on the severity of the breakdown) on simply repairing and continuing with the same old system, doesn’t really make much sense. As the old phrase goes: “it’s spending good money after bad”. And who’s to say the old system won’t break down again soon after? To put it bluntly, a second repair bill of a similar order means you have then spent almost the entire cost of a new system getting an old one repaired twice!

HOW MANY BIRTHDAYS HAS YOUR SYSTEM HAD?

We just a little, but you do need to consider the age of your AC system. If it’s a decade or more old, and you face a sizeable repair bill, we would normally recommend a replacement. Most manufacturers recommend a replacement every 10-15 years, so the age coupled with yet more outlay for repairs probably means you need to replace with a new system.

NEW AC – IT COMES WITH BENEFITS

Of course, if you have to make that often difficult decision to replace for new, it does come with lots of added benefits. You’re probably going to be replacing the old one with a model that has had the last 10 years to advance greatly in quality and new developments. AC is evolving all the time – so a decade or more have passed since your last new system was fitted will mean you’re getting a system that is so much more efficient and stands to last even longer than the last one. It also equates to the potential for much lower utility bills and fewer repairs over the coming years. Quite simply, it will be a great investment!
