If you live in an area of the country where you won’t suffer too much if your air conditioner breaks down, chances are you’ll choose to live without a/c until you can afford to have it repaired. But for those of us homeowners who live in the Phoenix, AZ area, we will face the decision to repair or replace at some point. How do we make that decision, though?
Energy Star recommends upgrading to an energy-efficient unit if your current HVAC unit is 10 years old or older. But if you’re not having issues with your a/c unit and your utility bills are low, then there’s probably no need to do anything just yet. Though having one of John’s NATE Certified technicians look over your entire HVAC system – from the coil and compressor to the vents inside your home – is an investment that can save you serious money. If they find anything wrong, they can fix it right away or let you know if the unit may need repairing soon. Maintaining your home’s air conditioning system is a smart move, especially during monsoon.
If you frequently make repairs on your HVAC unit, you might want to consider buying a new unit. The energy efficiency of new units can save you money over time because your older unit is probably draining money directly out of your bank account every time you pay your utility bill. Buying new means you could easily realize a 20% savings on heating and cooling costs.
