Should I Repair or Replace My Air Conditioner? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Air conditioners play a large role in getting maximum comfort in our home. Because we frequently use our air conditioner, we are bound to experience issues down the road. One of the questions that most people ask our team of air conditioning experts is how they can know if it’s time to repair or replace their air conditioner. The Durham AC professionals at JD Service Now have put together a handy infographic to help you identify when it’s time to replace your air conditioner.

Factors To Consider When Deciding to Repair or Replace Your AC

The two major factors you should consider when deciding if you should repair or replace your AC is the age of your air conditioner and the cost of repairs. In most cases, you can find the age of your air conditioner with an inspection sticker located on the front or side of the equipment. If you can’t find the age on the sticker, you can ask our technicians to find out the age by looking up the serial number of your AC.

Once you know the age of your air conditioner, you can use our repair and replace diagram for guidance. We recommend looking at both the age and the cost of repairs. For example, if your AC system is 10 years old and the cost of repairs is more than $800, you should consider replacing your equipment. Dumping money into an older AC system won’t be worth the investment. However, if your AC system is 5 years old and your cost of repairs is $1,300, it will be working the investment since your AC is newer and will last years with the repairs. It is more likely that parts of your AC will malfunction if it is older.
