Clients often ask us their options regarding their AC repair vs. replacement.
Pro tip: The best time to replace your A/C unit is during the spring before summer hits in Columbus.
The age of your existing air conditioner is an essential factor. If it's older than ten years, parts may be hard to get or no longer be available. Also, it does not always make sense to repair an old A/C; consider replacing it if the repair is over $500.
Sometimes it makes more sense to replace an old unit with a more efficient and reliable one. We can help you make the right choice, determine the age and the cost of a repair, and give you options that fit your budget.
A/C repair vs. replacement in Columbus.
Clients often ask us if it makes sense to fix the old unit or whether they should replace the whole system. That's especially true when a major repair is needed, like replacing a defective compressor.
We recommend that if the repair is over $500 and the unit is over ten years old, you consider replacing it and shopping for a new system. Get at least three estimates from reliable HVAC contractors in Columbus to better understand what you need and what you get, cost, and efficiency.
Repairing an old unit may give you one more season and buy you time to shop for a new A/C unit or system. But it's not guaranteed since, most likely other components could fail.
The problem can easily be fixed if the repair is more common, like an electrical control failure or airflow restriction with a new component and regular maintenance to last you for many seasons.
The cost of a new A/C is dependent upon many factors. The square footage of your home, how many windows and doors, if your house is facing west or south, and how much airflow will help your existing ductwork handle.
Our expert technicians will offer you various choices to make the most informed decision for your family and home.
