Douglasville Air Conditioning Tips: Replacement

When you are ready to buy, rely on Anchor and Trane.

Here at Anchor Heating and Air, we get a lot of questions about when units should be replaced.

So, when should you replace your equipment instead of just fixing it?

We can usually fix your problems. There are times, though, in the life of every piece of equipment, when it’s better to do away with the old unit. To be honest, you will have to trust us if we tell you not to pay for repair. We are glad to give second opinions for free, and we do not mind you getting a second opinion regarding our recommendation.

If we do tell you to replace a unit, then we believe that repairs will amount to throwing your money away. Our recommendation is usually based on the age of your unit and the condition it is in depending on how well it was maintained. On a fairly new unit, we will probably make a repair. On an older unit heading the way of the dinosaurs, your money may be better spent on a new unit with no problems. If you choose to repair an old unit, please don’t be angry when you have to call us again. We hate to keep charging you.

You should also keep in mind the fact that newer technologies allow cooling and heating with greater efficiency. This means that your old equipment may be wasting up to half of the fuel it burns, and has always done so! New equipment will waste far less, and you will notice the difference in your comfort level and utility savings. The American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy says you may save up to 50% if your old unit was installed before 1990. Check with your utility company to see if they offer a rebate for new, efficient equipment.
