Repair or Replace Your Air Conditioner?

When your air conditioning system starts to show signs of wear and tear, it can be challenging to decide whether to repair or replace it. At Russell Abbott Heating & Cooling, we provide expert guidance to help you make the best decision for your home and budget. 

Factors to Consider When to Repair vs Replace Your AC Include:

  • Age of the Unit: If your AC is over 10-15 years old, it’s often more cost-effective to replace it with a newer, more efficient model.
  • Frequent Repairs: When repair costs start to add up, replacing your unit can be a more economical choice in the long run.
  • Inefficiency: Older units often consume more energy, leading to higher utility bills. A new, energy-efficient model can save you money on energy costs.
  • Inconsistent Cooling: If your AC struggles to maintain a consistent temperature or some rooms are hotter than others, it might be time for a replacement.
  • Refrigerant Type: Older AC units that use R-22 refrigerant are becoming more expensive to service due to the phase-out of this coolant. Upgrading to a unit that uses R-410A refrigerant is a wise investment.
  • Loud Noises: Unusual or loud noises can indicate severe issues with your AC unit. If repairs don’t resolve the problem, replacement may be necessary.
  • Poor Air Quality: If your current system is not effectively filtering air, leading to dust or humidity problems, a new AC unit can improve indoor air quality significantly.

At Russell Abbott Heating & Cooling, we ensure a seamless AC replacement process, starting with a thorough evaluation of your current system and cooling needs. Our certified technicians will recommend the best options for your home and install the new unit with precision and care.

What Size AC Do I Need?

One of the most important components to consider when installing a new air conditioner is what size system your home needs. If undersized, your AC won't be able to keep up with your cooling demands and will struggle to adequately cool your home, leading to temperature inconsistencies and uneven air distribution from room to room. This will ultimately lead to wear and tear on the unit as it will have to consistently run to try and achieve your desired temperature. Conversely, if your air conditioner is oversized, the system will constantly turn on and off which leads to more breakdowns, higher energy costs, and a decrease in energy efficiency. 

To ensure you get the correct sized air conditioning unit for your home, it is best to speak to a professional Knoxville AC installation technician from our team.
