Are you deciding between repairing or replacing your air conditioning unit? It is a big decision to make. Not one of us has a money tree in the backyard and while we don’t want to throw good money after bad by continuing to repair an air conditioning unit that needs replacing, sometimes the upfront cost of a new unit is more than we can bear to think about.

There are a couple of factors to consider as you make your choice.

If your home seems too humid, too dry and always dusty, you might just need to have a professional come out to inspect your ductwork and insulation.

If the temperature is inconsistent throughout your house, this could also be an indication of an insulation problem.

If you have a high energy bill and you don’t have or don’t properly use a programmable thermostat, you might consider getting one or learning how to use the one you have to save you money.

If your air conditioner is over 10 years old, you might consider a replacement. Energy ratings have come a long way in the past 10 years and you could cost yourself more in bills over the coming years than it would cost to replace your unit.

If you are in constant need of repairs, you should really consider a new air conditioning unit. Over time, the repair bills coupled the time taken off work coupled with the energy  inefficiencies really add up to a lot of money in a short amount of time.
