Does Your AC Need Repairs, or Does it Need to Be Replaced?

Now that the summer heat has officially hit West Michigan, you’re relying more and more on your air conditioning to help keep cool. However, that old unit of yours is really showing signs of its age, and that puts you in quite the predicament: should you repair or replace AC units? 

In many cases, an issue with your AC can be quickly diagnosed by an experienced technician from Sunrise Heating & Plumbing and schedule a time for repairs. If your unit is still relatively new, or less than 10 years old, then a repair would be the most efficient solution in terms of time and cost. 

Older units, on the other hand, can have recurring issues year in and year out. Every repair at the start of every summer starts to add up, both in the wear and tear as well as the cost. Units that are older than 10 years, especially units that are older than 20 years old, maybe on their last legs, and repairs can be futile efforts in trying to extend its usage.

When the costs of repairs begin to really add up, you will find that replacing your older unit with a brand new unit will bring many benefits. Newer air conditioners are more energy-efficient, which you will immediately notice when the bills arrive. The price of replacing does come with a higher price than a repair, but throughout the lifetime of your new unit, you will notice the savings.

Besides just cooling your home, newer air conditioning units can help clean and filter the air. Cleaner air means fewer allergens, and fewer allergens can mean fewer trips to the drug store or to your doctor. 

Are you tired of hearing the phrase, “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity”? You won’t have to worry so much about either, because newer air conditioning units also work as dehumidifiers, creating a more comfortable living space for you, your family, and your guests.

That decision to repair or replace your old air conditioning unit does not need to fall solely on you.
