Should You Get A New AC Or Repair Your Old One?

As a homeowner you are constantly looking at your budget, expenditures and more.  Each week when you get your paycheck you start looking at bills, what were paid last week, the week before and what is coming.  From there you create a budget and repeat the process.  The one thing that you don’t want to have happen is be hit with a surprise bill such as a broken air conditioner.

When it comes to your air conditioner you want to have a company like Day & Night come to you and give you an evaluation of what you need to do and why.  You will want to have several companies come out and give you an estimate since a replacement and repair can be expensive purchases.

How old is your unit?

You should have a ten year warranty on your AC units.  This is typically the case when purchased new. However, if you moved in to a home that already had a unit then you will want to determine when it was installed and what warranty you currently have.  After ten years you will want to start monitoring your device even closer to ensure it doesn’t break.

Is it an easy fix?

The next thing you need to determine is if what you need done is an easy fix or will it be complicated?  You want things to be easy, but you don’t want to be running into different problems every season.  For the past few years we did everything that we could to keep our AC unit working.  It was a used replacement to the original that died.  This lasted us about five years but over the course of this time it would have been cheaper to invest in a new unit.

At the end of the day it all comes down to your budget, your needs and what you plan to do.  If a new unit is in the cards, I suggest doing that over repairs every day.  However, when it is simple, patch it and move on.
