AC Repair vs Replacement

The big question always looms, is it better to repair or replace? There are benefits to each route of maintenance for your AC unit, mostly factored around cost efficiency and performance based on the shelf life of the unit you have:

0-8 Years: Your unit is still fresh (relatively), and has plenty of time left, and it is more beneficial for you to look into repairs at this stage.

9-14 Years: At this stage, there is some decent wear & tear, and depending on how well the unit has been maintained, repair might be the best option still. However, a unit that is constantly in use for over a decade might have seen better days with little maintenance, and installing a new unit could be more cost effective in the long run.

15+ years: Your unit has weathered the highs and lows of Lakewood’s climate (though there aren’t many lows), and it has served you faithfully. Now is the moment to contemplate a replacement for long-term cost-effectiveness. As units age, finding older parts becomes increasingly challenging, the inefficiency of your current unit starts affecting your bills, and advancements in technology make newer components more efficient, among other factors.   


Common Air Conditioner Problems

What could potentially go wrong with your AC unit? Here are some helpful insights into common issues you might encounter with your air conditioner:

  • Uneven airflow: One of the most prevalent AC problems involves weak or insufficiently cold air coming from the unit. This often results from issues like poor duct flow or a clogged filter.

  • Condenser not expelling hot air: When your condenser fails to push out hot air, it typically signals that your unit isn’t cooling effectively. This issue can be attributed to various factors, including dirty coils, refrigerant leaks, or regular wear and tear.

  • Filter concerns: A dirty filter ranks among the most common AC problems. It can lead to filter blockages, but fortunately, it’s a relatively straightforward task to replace it yourself. If you find the task daunting, don’t hesitate to seek assistance from a technician.


DIY Tips for AC Tune Up

There are things you can also do on your end as far as HVAC tuning to extend the shelf life of your unit. Here are a couple tips from us to you:

Regularly Change Filters: Every 1-3 months, depending on usage, to ensure optimal airflow.

Clean the Exterior: Keep the outdoor unit free from debris and foliage to maintain efficiency.

Check Thermostat Settings: Sometimes, the issue might just be a misconfigured thermostat.

Conversely, there will be parts of maintenance/tune up to your unit that only a professional will be able to complete. Here is a list just to provide some insight into things that the untrained eye might not see or won’t have the tools to diagnose:

Refrigerant levels & oil pressure, deep coil cleaning, electrical components, combustion analysis, heat exchange inspection, motor lubrication, ductwork inspection/cleaning, thermostat calibration, belt adjustments, drain line cleaning, & more.
