When Should You Replace Your Air Conditioner?

Although replacing your air conditioner costs more upfront than a repair, it sometimes is worth spending the extra few hundred dollars to opt for replacement of an older AC model. At Farnen & Dermer, our team will always attempt to repair rather than replace if it's possible, but you can count on our experts to guide you to make the decision that will make the most financial sense in the long run.

Consider replacing your AC if:

  • The cost of repair is more than half the cost of replacement - if something large breaks on your air conditioner, such as the compressor, it will usually make more sense to opt for replacement.
  • You have already had it repaired in the past - rather than continue to pay for repairs on a faulty system, it might be worth your while to invest in a new model. This advice will vary depending on the extent of repair & the cost of the previous repairs.
  • Your air conditioner is more than a decade old - most air conditioners will last for around 15 years, so if your AC is approaching that decade mark it usually makes more sense to replace it rather than repair it.
  • Your air conditioner uses R22 Freon - The production and import of R22 Freon was banned in the United States starting on January 1, 2020. Because of this, the Freon that remains in existence will get progressively more expensive over time. It also poses an environmental hazard and is a key contributor to the depletion of the ozone layer.

Maximize Home Comfort with Energy-Efficient AC Upgrades

Even if your air conditioning system is currently meeting your home cooling needs, a system that is more than ten years old is using more energy to cool the house than necessary. Newer models of air conditioners are much more energy efficient, and could potentially save you money every month on your utilities.

Upgrading your air conditioner allows you to enjoy:

  • Improved home comfort
  • Higher efficiency equipment
  • Lower energy costs
  • Better indoor air quality

Ensuring the Right Fit: AC System Sizing Guide

If your air conditioner is less than 10 years old, but your home is too warm, too humid, or your energy bills are too high, your system may not be properly sized for your home. Sizing is important because a system that is too small or too large for your home won’t cool it efficiently. An improperly sized AC system will have to work harder to cool your home, which increases energy costs and wear-and-tear on the system.

AC Replacement FAQs Answered by Professionals

What factors should I consider when choosing a new air conditioner?

When choosing a new air conditioner, it's important to consider factors such as the size of your home, energy efficiency ratings, noise levels, and your budget. Consulting with a professional HVAC technician can help you determine the best options for your specific needs.

Do I need to replace both the indoor and outdoor units during an AC installation?

In most cases, it is recommended to replace both the indoor and outdoor units during an AC installation. This ensures compatibility and optimal performance. However, there may be situations where only one component needs to be replaced, depending on the condition of the existing system.

What are the benefits of upgrading to a more energy-efficient air conditioner?

Upgrading to a more energy-efficient air conditioner can result in several benefits. These include lower energy bills, reduced environmental impact, improved indoor comfort, and potential eligibility for utility rebates or incentives. Additionally, newer models often come with advanced features and technology for enhanced performance.

How often should I schedule maintenance for my new air conditioner?

Regular maintenance is essential to keep your new air conditioner running efficiently and prolong its lifespan. It is recommended to schedule professional maintenance at least once a year, preferably before the start of the cooling season. This allows for any potential issues to be addressed and ensures optimal performance.
