seems like it is never a good time to have to budget for air
conditioner repairs or an AC system replacement. However, every
homeowner in Anaheim has to face this decision at some point in time
if they stay in a home for long enough.
Both replacement and AC repair can be costly, so understanding which option is the best is a central consideration. This is not always as simple as it may appear, and a professional HVAC service is a trusted resource to turn to in making the decision.
of the System
typical life cycle for a residential air conditioner is about 13 to
15 years. Some systems may not last as long, particularly if they are
not maintained, and others may last for years longer. As a general
rule, the cooler the house is kept, the harder the system works and
the shorter the number of years for operation without the need for
systems get older, there is more wear on the major parts and
components. This tends to mean that older systems require more AC
repair services than newer systems. At the same time, newer systems
may need relatively minor repair and will continue to operate for
years of trouble-free cooling.
in doubt, ask the HVAC company for a cost estimate for the repair as
well as for a replacement system. The technician from Home Comfort
USA can also typically give a visual appraisal of the overall
condition of the unit and provide a general estimate of the need for
potential future repairs. This can help the Anaheim homeowner
understand the pros and cons of choosing the replacement or opting
for the repair
For newer systems, the choice of AC repair is often the most cost-effective. Be sure to read your warranty for the system and check to make sure if the parts or labor on the repair may be covered.
