When to Repair vs. Replace Your System
Air Conditioning systems in cooler climates can last 2 or 3 times longer than the same air conditioner in a hot climate. Increased run times and very high heat lead to system wear out and quicker failure.
The average operating hours for an air conditioner can be significantly greater in our desert climate than in moderate climates like Denver or Salt Lake City. An Air Conditioner up North will run between 600 and 1,000 hours per year, while a Heat Pump in Southern Nevada will run between 4,000 and 5,000 hours per year.
When to Repair your air conditioner:
- If you plan on moving soon, you may not recover your investment price from a replacement air conditioning unit when you sell.
- A replacement that involves other trades may be cost prohibitive. In rare situations, a new air conditioning system can require significant remodeling.
- The system has been trouble free thus far and looks to be mechanically sound still.
When to Replace your air conditioner:
- Old air conditioning equipment becomes expensive to repair and offers no guarantee that additional problems are not close behind.
- If the equipment is 8 years old or older, be careful not to throw good money after bad with repairs. The average life span of a construction grade air conditioning system in Southern Nevada is 8 to 12 years.
- If your system is older than 12 years, you could be losing a fortune to the Power Company every month. A new Super-Efficient system could save you $ 800 to $1,200 or more per year.
- If you are not comfortable. Today’s modern air conditioning comfort systems can virtually eliminate hot and cold areas, high and low humidity, bad air quality, high utility bills, noisy indoor and outdoor equipment, and much more.
- If your system does not have variable air flow. Variable air flow is the key to comfort. New systems keep the air moving, adding to comfort and helping save money.
- If you are concerned about break downs. When an old system fails under the intense summer heat, it may take 7 to 10 days to get a new one installed just because everyone’s systems seem to fail at the same time (when it is 110 ° to 120° outside).
- If family members have allergies, asthma or other air quality health concerns. Indoor air quality can be improved throughout the whole house by 100 times with today’s high tech IAQ technology and air conditioning products.
