Is It Better To Repair or Replace a Broken Air Conditioner?

There are three parameters by which you can measure when it’s time to replace a broken air conditioner. These include:

  • Age: If the AC is over 10 years old, it might be worth replacing it the next time it breaks down.
  • Repair cost: A new system might be a smarter investment if the repair estimate is more than 50% of the cost to buy a new unit, especially if the old system is over 10 years old.
  • Utility bills: If your cooling costs have risen steadily in the past few years, it might be time to invest in a more efficient unit, especially if you’re looking at a high repair cost for an aging system.

Air Conditioning FAQs

Why is my AC running but not cooling?

Your air conditioner has several places that can fail while leaving the rest to run; your blower might still be running and pushing air, but if you have frozen coils, a failed compressor, or no refrigerant, it won’t be pushing cold air. On the other hand, even if everything is running right to produce cold air, an obstruction or the failure of your blower could mean that you won’t get any air through your ducts.

What can cause your AC to stop working?

If your AC isn’t working at all, check that the breaker hasn’t flipped, that the coils aren’t frozen, and that it hasn’t leaked out all of its refrigerants. Problems can also include dead fans, blocked ventilation, compressor failures, and more.

What is considered an AC emergency?

If you’re dealing with an air conditioning situation where a delay in service could put you or your home at risk of harm or damage, then it’s an AC emergency. Outages during sweltering days with vulnerable people in the house are considered emergencies.

How long do AC repairs take?

It depends on how accessible your system is and the severity of the issue. Clearing a clogged filter or duct or flipping a breaker takes minutes, while replacing a hard-to-reach internal component (or your entire unit) will take substantially longer, as much as several hours. We won’t know an exact repair time frame until we look at the situation.
