ac service lakelandThere will inevitably come a time when you face the question of whether it’s better to repair or replace your air conditioning unit. Your HVAC system should run reliably and efficiently in a cost-effective manner. If your old unit is inefficient & expensive to run, it might be time to consider replacing it.

Installing a new A/C unit can be a significant investment, but replacing your noisy, worn out system may actually provide a number of cost benefits. If you notice that your air condition is not cooling like it has in years past or that your electric or utility bills are higher, a more efficient A/C unit may be just what you need.

Repairing your unit may be just a temporary fix, so why waste money when you can put it towards a brand new efficient air conditioning & heating system?

There are a number of advantages to replacing your old A/C system. Many of them provide cost saving benefits which help the system pay for itself in as little as 5 to 7 years. Here’s a look at some common reasons to replace your system vs. repairing it:

Lower Utility Bills

Fuel prices for gas, electric, and oil continue to go up and the cost to cool & heat your home can often put a strain on your monthly budget. A brand new efficient A/C unit can use up to 50% less electricity than old, outdated models which means you can save a lot of money on your monthly energy bills when you decide to replace your old unit.

Prevent Costly Repairs

As air conditioning units age, the cost to repair and replace major components gets more expensive. If your A/C unit is over a decade old, grab your repair bills for the past 2 to 3 years. How much have you already spent on replacing things like the compressor, evaporator, heat exchanger or coils? The money you’ve been spending (or will spend) to keep repairing your old, inefficient unit could all be going to a brand new unit.

Get Rebates & Tax Incentives

There are a number of rebate programs and government tax incentives that can make the cost of replacing your air conditioning unit a no-brainer. Upgrading your heating & cooling unit can save you money by gaining rebate offers & tax incentives AND saving you on monthly utility bills.

Beyond just money-saving advantages, replacing a worn out, inefficient A/C unit can also provide better comfort by cooling more adequately, offer greater reliability so you won’t have a breakdown during the heaviest usage times, and a quieter & more eco-friendly operation.
