Repair or Replace?

How To Decide If You Should Repair Or Replace Your AC

Your air conditioning unit is a significant investment, and knowing when to repair or replace it is an essential part of maintaining your home’s comfort and managing expenses. The choice isn’t always clear cut, as several factors like the unit’s age, its repair history, and your energy bills come into play. Let’s delve into the key considerations that can help you make an informed decision.

Age of the Unit

The average lifespan of a well-maintained air conditioning unit is around 15 to 20 years.

Cost of Repairs

If the cost of the repair is close to 50% (or more) of the cost of a new unit, it’s usually better to replace.

Frequency of Repairs

If your unit requires frequent repairs, it may indicate a bigger issue that could lead to a system breakdown.

Energy Efficiency

Even if your older unit is working, replacing it with a newer, more energy-efficient model could save you money.


If you notice a decline in your unit’s performance, it might be time for a replacement.

Signs of Disrepair

Signs Your System is In Need of Repairs

Is your air conditioning system not working as well as it used to? Are you experiencing issues such as poor airflow or strange noises coming from your unit? These could be signs that your air conditioning system is in need of repair. Here are a few of the signs that your air conditioning system may need repairs.

System Age & Condition

One of the most obvious indicators that it’s time to replace your air conditioner is its age. The average lifespan of an air conditioner is about 10-15 years. Of course, if you are on a regular maintenance plan, like those Lindemann offers, it’s very likely to last longer.

Additionally, the condition of your system should also be taken into consideration. If your system is in poor condition, frequently breaking down, or showing signs of wear and tear, it may be more cost-effective to replace it rather than continuing to repair it.

Efficiency Now vs New (Energy Usage)

Another important factor to consider is the efficiency of your current air conditioner compared to newer models. Today’s air conditioners are much more energy-efficient than those made even a decade ago. If your system is not energy-efficient, it may be costing you more money to operate than a newer, more efficient model would.

If you’ve been keeping up with maintenance and repair, then your system should be running optimally.  Our certified technicians will be your guide and provide you with maintenance and necessary repairs to your existing system. This way it will last longer and save you money over the long run.

Frequency of Service Calls, Current Value of your System

Another indicator that your air conditioner may need to be replaced is the frequency of service calls. If you find yourself calling for repairs more often than usual, it could be a sign that your system is reaching the end of its life and may need to be replaced.

Additionally, the current value of your system should be taken into consideration. If the cost of repairs outweighs the current value of your system, it may be more cost-effective to replace it.
