Should you repair or replace the air conditioner in your Prescott home?

Do I replace the air conditioner or repair it? Which makes more sense? Which is more affordable? Does my air conditioner still have plenty of life? How do I know? Prescott Air Conditioning offers this guide to help Prescott homeowners know when to replace your home's air conditioner.

Signs your unit may need to be replaced:

  • If it is more than 15 years old.

When deciding whether to replace or repair the air conditioner, consider its age first. Air conditioners have a typical lifespan of about 10-15 years. So, if your home's air conditioner is acting up (especially again) and it is over 10 years old then it’s probably a time to replace it.

  • If your energy costs keep increasing.

If your local utility company hasn't increased the rates, then your air conditioner might be working overtime to keep your house comfortable. That may be an indicator that it's the wrong-sized unit or that it is failing mechanically and needs to keep running to keep you and your family cool.

  • If repair calls are more frequent and and costly.

At Prescott Air Conditioning, we will inspect your system, explain in as great detail as you like, and advise you on what needs to be repaired. We love going into technical detail about our findings! We invite you to join us and watch our work - if you want. This way we’ll better explain the results and how much it will cost. We will not sell you anything you don’t need and we don't believe in pushy sales - ever! We repair over 95% of the air conditioners we are called on to service. That’s what we do!

Eventually you may need to replace the air conditioning unit in your Prescott home, but don't do it without being well-informed. Call the air conditioning repair specialists at Prescott Air Conditioning today at 928-308-1254 to schedule a pre-season inspection.

5 out of 5 stars Rich and Brenda showed up within an hour of us contacting them, assessed the problem with our furnace, had the broken part on hand (!!! It's a 26 year old furnace!!!). They were extremely friendly, professional, explanatory and obviously care about the work they do. We had quite a few problems, and the 2 other HVAC folks said "just replace the thing" and took a service fee. While Rich tended to agree that it needs replacing, he made sure he got the unit working, inspected and was confident in its safety as a stop gap. Could not recommend them more. It's quite rare to get such thorough, professional.

5 out of 5 stars Best service I have ever received. Rich and his wife arrived at our residence in a timely manner, very nice people. Rich explained in detail our issue with our AC system and how it occurred. He fixed my problem and provided some tips to keep our system up to par. The best part of the whole thing, they cared about their customers and it showed. You can trust that they will give you an honest quote and do what they can to fix your problem without taking you to the bank. Thank You Prescott Air Conditioning & Heating!

5 out of 5 stars Brenda and Rich were very helpful. I called and left a message at 10 am on a Saturday, they called back an hour later, and we had our ac up and running by noon that day. Fast, friendly, easy to schedule and reasonably priced. As a local in Prescott I highly recommend them.
