Replacing vs. Repairing
Although central air conditioners can last for 15 to 20 years, early replacements are recommended if you’ve experienced hefty repair bills or a decrease in cooling power. There are several calculations for comparing the cost of replacements and repairs. According to one method, if the repair cost multiplied by the age of the unit exceeds $5,000, replacement is a better option. Remember that a new air conditioner can reduce your cooling costs by 20 to 40 percent, so it’s a sound investment.
