When to get your Air Conditioner Repaired

It’s tough to know when it is time to replace your air conditioning unit or whether to invest money into repairing it. The key is to speak with a technician that is going to be honest with you and not just run up your bill. It is common to use the internet and simply search “air conditioner repair near me, or ac unit repair,” but look no further! Jordan Air is an award winning company that has been serving the Athens area since 1993. We are a team of highly skilled technicians that care about our customers. Honesty is at the core of our company and you are guaranteed to be given the best advice when caring for your air conditioning unit.

Check out these tips to help evaluate how to treat your air conditioner:

  1. Consider the age

    Most air conditioning units have a lifespan of about 10-15 years. Once it gets into this age range and your unit is acting up it tends to be more cost efficient in the long run to go ahead and replace it. You don’t want to pour lots of money into a unit that might be at the end of its life anyway.

  2. Replace if the cost is too high

    Most A/C units run between $5,000-$7,000. If the cost of the repair is close to the cost of a new unit it may make sense to go ahead and replace, especially if the unit is aging. If its a newer unit, talk to your technician for recommendations. It is usually worth the repair if it is under 10 years old.

  3. Look at your energy bill

    When air conditioning units begin to malfunction your energy bill may increase. Check with your utility company first, but if their rates haven’t gone up it’s probably time for a new unit.
