How do you know when it's time to replace your AC system or just repair it?

Most air conditioning systems in the Phoenix, Arizona area start to have issues and AC breakdowns at around the 10 to 15 year mark. Sometimes you can get away with a simple and low cost air conditioning repair and fix, but generally, once the breakdowns start to happen, they usually don't stop on older AC equipment. That's why replacing your AC system before your air conditioning unit stops cooling in the middle of a hot Arizona summer weekend or Holiday is likely in your best interest. If you have an older system and an ac repair costs more than $500, we recommend seriously considering replacing the AC unit because you start to risk being one of those people who start to dump $500-$1500 every summer in trying to keep your air conditioning system operational.

  Sure, you might get lucky and be one off those homeowners that have an AC system that works for 20 years or more, but think of how inefficient it will be to operate! The older an air conditioning system or heat pump is, the more it loses its SEER (or energy efficiency) rating. Besides, newer HVAC systems, especially those with inverter driven technology such as variable capacity AC systems, regulate the air conditioner's refrigerant flow rate by adjusting the speed of the AC system's compressor, which in turn increases the energy efficiency of the AC unit, keeps you more comfortable in your home continuously and lowers your utility bill.
