AC repair service in Jupiter – Should I repair or replace my air conditioner?

When your air conditioning is broken or malfunctioning, your home or office can soon become extremely uncomfortable. Finding an AC repair service in Jupiter can help you recover your tranquility by making everything work once more.

However, with all the progress in AC technology in the last decades, maybe you’re hesitant on whether it’s better to replace your system instead of investing in repairing an older one. And you may be right to think so.

When considering whether to repair or replace your AC, remember that since 2006, SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rates have been risen to a minimum of 13 and since 2010 the refrigerant of older systems was discontinued. These changes have made modern systems, even at the lowest standards, much more energy efficient than older ones, bringing into question whether it’s worth keeping systems older than 2006 or even 2010.

Still, the air conditioner is not the only part of an AC system, and you may find that some changes in ductwork and insulation could make your system run efficiently for a few years before you have to update. These considerations will help you make your decision:

• Inspect the ductwork, as you could be losing between 10 and 30% of the air before it reaches livable space. Even if you replace your AC, if you have faulty ductwork your space will take longer to cool down. Conversely, repairing or replacing faulty ductwork can boost up your efficiency so that you won’t need AC replacement in a few years.
• Check the insulation. Just as with the ductwork, a poorly insulated home will make your system less efficient. Fixing your insulation could boost up your system’s efficiency, lowering your costs as much as 30% and foregoing the need of a replacement. Don’t replace your AC until you see that it is inefficient even after reinforcing your insulation.
• Review SEER ratings and refrigerant. Since older systems have lower ratings and another type of refrigerant, they are less energy efficient, which translates into more money. If your system has 10 or less SEER and/or R-22 refrigerant and ductwork or insulation are not an issue, a new system can cut your costs down. If your system is more recent than 2010, it probably needs a few repairs and a replacement is not necessary.
