Air Conditioning Installation and Replacement
Choosing an HVAC contractor for your air conditioning installation or replacement is much more important than choosing the make or model of your air conditioning unit. There’s an old saying in the HVAC industry that “the most important day in the life of your HVAC unit is the day it’s installed.” We believe this is true.
Despite the energy efficiency claims made by A/C manufacturers, they don’t mean anything if the unit is improperly installed. Unfortunately, about half of all new HVAC systems aren’t installed properly, and as a result, fail to live up to manufacturer claims.
Usually, air conditioners start to have problems once they get older and parts wear out. The temperature output may not be consistent, and repairs may be frequent. Air conditioning units are made to last an average of 10 years. Luckily, newer systems are energy efficient and will give you a nice return on your utility bills.

Repair or Replace Your Air Conditioner?
When your A/C unit breaks down, you’re left with two options: repair it or replace it. It’s a hard decision. Repairs cost less than replacement, but frequent repairs add up. Here are some tips to help you decide.
Age x repair cost
Take the age of the unit and multiply it by the cost of the repair. Say your A/C unit is 10 years old and the repair will cost $300. The number would be $3,000, so a repair is practical. However, if the repair were to cost $600, for a total of $6,000, it would be worth replacing the system.
Cost to run
Energy Star recommends getting a new system after 10+ years because the energy savings can outweigh the costs of replacement over time.
Type of repair
Some repairs that are needed on A/C systems are guaranteed to lead to other problems down the road. For example, a leaking system. Once a leak starts, other leaks are sure to follow in an older system, costing thousands of dollars. At this point, a new system will likely save you hassle and money overall.
How much is a new A/C system?
A new air conditioning unit will cost anywhere from $3,600 to $7,200, depending on the options chosen and engineering requirements.
