Repair or Replace My Air Conditioning and Heating System?
Depending on the seriousness of the problem and the age of the equipment, you may be better off replacing heating or air conditioning equipment. Although we will do our best to repair your air conditioner or furnace and keep costs low, we will also be 100% honest with you and recommend replacing your air conditioning and heating system if it's necessary.
Constant improvements in heating and air conditioning equipment means that units produced today are much more efficient than those produced even five years ago. If your system is 10 years old, installing a new system will save you enough money to cancel out the cost of the new system in just a few years.
Another consideration is the coolant used in most home air conditioning systems, R-22, commonly known as Freon, is a gas that has been linked to ozone depletion. World governments have agreed to phase out Freon production to reduce global warming. Systems produced after 2010 no longer use Freon and production of Freon is set to all but disappear by 2020. Each year less is produced, causing the cost to quickly rise.
