Should You Repair or Replace Your Air Conditioner?

Should You Repair or Replace Your Air Conditioner?

Replacing your air conditioner can be costly, so it's best to know whether or not you'll simply need a repair. There are several determining factors that you should take into consideration before you decide to repair or replace your AC unit. Here are a few things to keep in mind that'll help you know what to do when your air conditioner is on the fritz. 

Efficiency and Age of the AC Unit
How efficient your air conditioner runs is likely going to tell you if a repair vs. a replacement is needed. If your home isn't cooling properly, your energy bills are higher than expected and the unit is more than 10-years old, then you may want to consider replacing the unit. A continuously running air conditioner is going to cost you more in the long run. If you have questions about the efficiency of your air conditioner, our technicians at A-Plus Quality, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area, can check it out for you. 

Benefits of Replacement
There are many benefits that can help you decide whether or not you should replace your AC unit or continue with repairs. Is the quality of the air circulating through your home stagnant or consistently producing too much dust? If so, the air filtration system in your AC unit may no longer be working properly. A replacement would improve air quality as well as provide you with manufacturer warranties that often the cover the unit for 10 years. Plus, smart technology and improvements in design give you additional features that reduce the need for future repairs. 

Air Conditioning Repair vs. Replacement
A good rule of thumb is to determine if the repair is going to cost more than $5000 or is equal to 50 percent of the unit's value. When the repair goes over either of those amounts, then it's best to get your air conditioner replaced. Some signs that you may need a repair are: loud noises, bad odors, high humidity, insufficient airflow and warm air.

  • On July 8, 2021, A Plus Quality Inc installed a boiler in my house. The company did a great job. The manager, Shak, came to give me a very detailed estimate. He also followed up every steps. He had a good team to come to do the installation. After installation, they check and explaining to me everything before leaving. I am really impressed. Besides, the office manager, Sandi, was very helpful too. I would like to recommend A Plus Quality Inc to my friends.

  • The boiler at our church died in January 2021 and we urgently needed a replacement. A Plus Quality responded right away. Despite the pandemic they managed to order all required parts and install them in about a week (it was a big job). The team was really professional and the price was reasonable. I would highly recommend A Plus Quality.

FAQ

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • How do I know what size unit I need?
    If you have any problems with your system, you should contact the contractor who installed the units. All our systems are covered by a 5 year parts, 7 year compressor limited warranty
     
  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.
