When Should I Invest in AC Repairs Versus an AC Replacement? 

This is a difficult question to answer broadly, but the answer for your specific case will depend on several factors, the most important being the age of your current system. If your air conditioning unit is more than 10 years old, then we recommend that you consider investing in an AC replacement. Older units tend to have more and more problems as they age, and you can easily spend as much as a newer and more efficient unit in repairs.

If your system is between 1 and 9 years old, then you should consider AC repairs as an option if the problem isn’t extensive. We recognize that the decision between AC repairs and an AC replacement can be a difficult one to make, and our HVAC technicians can help you determine the best choice for your circumstances.

How Can I Determine Which AC Unit Is Right for My Home?

While there are several different kinds of AC systems from which to choose, you’ll likely end up deciding between a ductless split AC unit and a central AC unit. Generally speaking, the former is more efficient for smaller homes or for those who don’t use their AC unit often. Central AC units are what you’ll find in most homes throughout Colorado, and they utilize a system of ducts and vents to pump conditioned air throughout the home. The initial installation is more involved, but one major benefit of a central AC unit is that you can take advantage of zoning to cool different rooms of your home. No matter what size your home is, you’ll love the ability to direct conditioned air to the rooms you use frequently without wasting money cooling empty rooms at the same time.

If you need help determining which AC unit will be right for you, just call one of our talented HVAC technicians! We’ll help you find a unit that meets your needs and doesn’t exceed your budget, and we can also provide you with HVAC maintenance or AC repairs if you would like to keep your current air conditioner.
