When Should You Repair and When Should You Replace Your AC?

Air conditioners must be kept in good condition so that they can properly cool your home or office when the temperatures start to rise. When your AC system doesn’t work properly, then you must repair it or replace it. How do you know which path to choose?

When deciding whether to repair or replace an AC unit, there are a few factors to consider, including the age of the unit, its performance and efficiency, and the cost of any required repair. These things will help you make a decision, but at the same time, you should consult with a professional. Our crews at Bock AC can help. For more information, dial 817-382-3435 or click here.

Common Signs You Need AC Repair

  • Neglecting regular maintenance, such as cleaning or replacing air filters.
  • The AC shows an inability to cool effectively and consistently.
  • Incorrect temperature settings or irregular cooling cycles.
  • Accumulated dirt can reduce the system's efficiency and cause overheating.
  • Damaged ductwork will reduce the efficiency of the AC system.
  • Motor failure or damaged blades can result in inadequate airflow & cooling.
  • Component failures lead to inadequate cooling and repairs.
  • Unusual sounds from the unit suggest an impending system failure.

What Factors Should You Consider Before Replacing an AC System?

  • Age of the AC Unit: If it's more than 10 years old, it might be less energy-efficient and prone to frequent breakdowns.
  • Repair Costs: If repair costs are approaching or exceeding 50% of the cost of a new AC, replacement will be more economical.
  • Performance Issues: If it struggles to cool the space, produces unusual noises, or provides uneven cooling, replacement may be necessary.
  • Utility Bills: A significant increase in energy consumption may indicate decreased efficiency, signaling the need for a more energy-efficient unit.
  • Professional Inspection: If a professional HVAC technician inspects your AC system and recommends a replacement, it is time to act.
