Let’s take a moment to imagine you’ve just come home from the local country fair–you’ve had a long, hot day and you are ready to relax at home in the cool air provided by your AC. The issue is, when you walk in the door, you discover that it is just as hot inside as it is outside. Your first instinct may be to feel frustrated because you were sure that you set the thermostat before you left. But you check the thermostat and discover that you did.
So now you are left with a question you are a little afraid to answer: Did your AC break down? And if so, does it need repairs…or a full-blown AC replacement in Tulsa?
Let’s look at how you can figure out what kind of condition your AC is in so you know if you need to schedule repairs or a replacement.
How Is Your AC Doing?
We’ve provided a brief guide to help you get an idea of what condition your air conditioner may be in. With the help of this guide, you can more easily determine whether you need repairs or a replacement.
- How old is it? An air conditioner can last up to between 10 to 15 years before it needs replacement. If your system is nearing this age range or has blown past it, you’ll need to hunt for a new system sooner than later. On the other hand, if you have a relatively new AC in your home, your comfort troubles should be resolved with a repair. In fact, it may be due to an older thermostat causing problems!
- How many repairs does it need? Every AC system needs repairs at some point or another. The question is, how many repairs has your AC needed in the past few years? One repair every few years is usually okay but needing to schedule repairs on an annual basis is a signal that your system is on its way out.
- Has it gotten maintenance? If your AC is getting towards the age range when it may need to be replaced, the amount of maintenance it’s gotten can be a deciding factor. Have a system that has gotten regular maintenance? You may be able to make it a few more years with a repair. If you have never gotten maintenance, however, it is very likely you’ll need a replacement closer to the 10-year mark.
- Is it able to produce cold air with professional service? Sometimes you are going to encounter an air conditioner that simply refuses to work. This is the system that you have to replace. If you have been diligent about getting maintenance regularly and you’ve scheduled repairs in a timely manner yet your current system still refuses to operate it means it’s time to hunt for a new one.
