Is It Time For A New System?

As the first sunny days of spring start to appear, your HVAC system might not be up to the challenge of keeping you comfortable.  Your first thought may turn to finding a great  air conditioning repair Mission Viejo professional.  Don’t worry–we are more than happy to fix your system!  But did you know that sometimes it’s actually more cost-effective to put in a new system, instead of continuing to repair the old one? Here are a few pros and cons to consider.

  1. Is Your System Keeping You Cool When It Is Working?

Some systems don’t work all that well even when they’re technically not broken.  If your system runs and moves air but just doesn’t cool your home adequately, it might be time to consider a replacement.  On the other hand, if your system does manage the temperature in your home well when it’s in good repair, then fixing your system might be the more cost-effective route.

  1. Can Your HVAC Company Easily Get Parts For Your System?

Most HVAC systems that are less than 10 years old are simple to service and acquire parts for.  If, however, you’re working with an air conditioner that’s more than 10 years old, parts get more difficult to find, making repairs both more costly and more lengthy to complete.  If your air conditioner is getting to the upper limit of its life (say, it’s 9 years old) and it’s starting to require more and more repairs, you might want to consider replacements.  A 2-year-old system, however, should be able to be maintained and repaired for many years to come.

  1. Try This Simple Equation

Are you the type who likes hard numbers?  A commonly used rule of thumb involves “the 5,000 rule”.  In short, consider the probable yearly cost of repairing your system over the next 10 years.  If you spend, for example, $200 per year over the next 10 years repairing your air conditioner, that’s $2000.  Since it’s less than $5000 (which is about the minimum cost of a new system), it’s cheaper to repair the system.

Preparing For The Turning Of The Seasons

Spring is in the air–the days get longer, the air gets warmer, and your thoughts might turn to your HVAC system.  If you’re worried that turning your system on might require a visit from and  air conditioner repair Laguna Hillsprofessional, you’ll want to check out our series of tips.  With a little “spring cleaning”, your HVAC system can work to keep you cool all summer long.

  1. Consider A Maintenance Call

While we’re going to give you a number of options for taking care of your HVAC system yourself, there’s no denying that the easiest way to make sure your system is running properly is to contact us and let us send one of our service professionals to give your system some TLC.  If the next few steps sound too complicated, don’t worry!  We are always here for you, and there’s no shame in calling for backup.

  1. Check Your Filters

Whether your system needs filters to be changed or simply cleaned, odds are that over the winter a lot of dust and dirt have accumulated.  Clogged or dirty filters can significantly increase the amount of work your system has to do in order to move air through your home, which can, in turn, significantly increase your cooling bills.  Take the time to check your filters, and if they’re dirty, either change or clean them.

  1. Check Your Vents

Dust accumulates inside your home, as well.  Pet dander, ash from fireplaces that are used during the winter, or simple accumulations of winter grit and grime can collect on the vents within your home.  When you’re doing your spring cleaning, take the time to use a brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner and give the vents a good dusting.  This will prevent allergens from being forced into the air inside your home, and will also allow air to move more freely through your ducts, which reduces the amount of strain on your HVAC system.
