Should I Replace My Whole AC Unit or Buy New Parts?

Choosing which AC service you need can be a tricky endeavor. Most homeowners looking to save money will assume that purchasing new parts for their unit will be less expensive than AC replacement. But that’s not always the case. There can come the point where a cooling system is too severely damaged or even too old to repair effectively.

That said, it’s not always easy to determine whether or not your AC unit has reached that “tipping” point. That’s where the experts with Premier HVAC Services come into play. Our team offers both AC repair services and AC replacement services. We’ll work with you to assess your unit’s condition and give you quotes for any service options you may be interested in.

AC Repair Services

Your AC unit is going to malfunction at one point or another. But that first breakdown isn’t a sign that you should worry. All AC units run into snags at one point or another—it’s just a matter of assessing what’s gone wrong and determining how to address the problem.

Some of the most common AC problems that our professional’s repair include the following issues:

  • Miscalibrated or damaged thermostats
  • Refrigerant leaks and tank damage
  • Drain clogs
  • Breaker and fuse failure
  • Dirty or damaged filters
  • Iced-over evaporator coils

Our team also specializes in regular AC maintenance. No matter how old your unit is, our experts can come out and help you get ahead of the problems that might otherwise encourage AC replacement. Regular maintenance keeps your repair costs low and your home comfortable. And what’s better than that?

AC Replacement Services

The process of replacing an AC unit doesn’t just involve removing the unit from your home. Finding a new cooling system can be a process, especially considering today’s growing market. The overwhelming options available to most homeowners can discourage many from considering AC replacement services, even when their older units have started to work less efficiently.

Luckily, Premier HVAC Services makes AC replacement simple. We can assess the state of your existing AC and let you know what kind of repairs, if any, might get your system back up and running again. At the same time, we can browse our existing catalog of units and let you know which may better suit your home.

If you decide to replace your AC, we’ll do all of the hard work for you. That includes disposing of your old unit, rerouting your vents, and ground-testing your new unit to ensure everything runs smoothly. 

When Do You Need to Replace Your AC?

Certain signs give away an AC that needs replacing. Our team tends to encourage homeowners to consider new installations when their units are:

Older or Outdated

Older and out-of-date AC units don’t serve their homes as effectively as newer models simply due to their less advanced technology and components. If you live in an older home, the chances are that your AC unit may have a few years behind its filter. There subsequently comes the point where it is in your best interest to replace your unit instead of repairing it. Installing a new unit may not only be less expensive than repairing the older one, but the new assembly is likely to circulate cool air through your home more effectively.

Suffering from Substantial Disrepair or Damage

Everything from a natural disaster to machine overuse can cause your air conditioner to malfunction. There’s a difference, however, between a damaged fan blade and a half-crushed unit. Of course, our team can assess the state of your unit when something goes amiss. Even if your unit has sustained significant damage, we’ll make sure you know what your options for repairs are. We’ll also quote you the cost of installing a newer unit. Based on your old unit’s cost and efficiency, you can decide whether or not AC replacement is right for you.
