If your air conditioning unit is not running as well as it used to, you may be wondering whether you should replace it or repair it. Unlike some people, most of us do not have the luxury of buying a brand new car once a year (as some people do), nor do we have the wherewithal to purchase a new HVAC system based on a whim. So we may be seriously seeking a solution to the dilemma of knowing whether or not the investment in a new unit would be worth it, or if it would be more financially feasible an in our best interests to call for AC repair in Hollywood, FL when our AC seems to be on the fritz.

The general rule of thumb is that if your unit is more than ten years old, it is probably time to opt for a new one. The reason for this has more to do with advances in technology than it does with the condition of your present air conditioner. Even if your ten year old unit is running well and at optimal levels, investing in a new AC today can reduce energy costs dramatically, by as much as 60%.  You can spend the money you would spend on higher bills investing in a new unit, and therefore justify the expense very easily, if your unit is an older one.

Newer air conditioning units usually break down due to heavy usage, and need minor repairs. An AC repair technician in Hollywood, FL is available 24 hours a day to make repairs if yours fails to work. Having your air conditioning system inspected in order to optimize energy use by an AC repair service is also a good idea. Hollywood, FL residents know how important it is to have fully functioning climate control in their homes before the dog days of summer are here, and the sweltering heat settles in for a few months.

Usually the decision to fix or get rid of an AC unit on the fritz depends not only on the age of the air conditioner, but also on how significant the damage is if it is in need of repair. Keeping your unit on a maintenance schedule reduces the risk of heavy damage. But if your AC does stop working, and the damage is significant, an AC repair technician in Hollywood, FL may recommend purchasing a new unit rather than making repairs. This is, however, rare. In most cases, it is worth is to repair newer units than to buy a brand new one.
