Is It Better to Repair Or Replace Your Broken AC?

In San Jose and outlying areas, a broken air conditioning unit causes discomfort and inconvenience. Summer temperatures in this part of California occasionally exceed 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Sweltering hot weather poses a significant health and safety concern, especially for the elderly, the very young, and the infirm. Property owners frequently wonder whether they should repair or replace a malfunctioning AC?

In general, repairing broken air conditioning equipment represents a smart first choice. Taking this step usually helps customers save money. The technicians of O.C. McDonald possess extensive experience fixing a variety of different types of residential and commercial heating and air conditioning equipment. We often assist property owners in maintaining the anticipated useful lifespan of this valuable equipment by performing skilled repair services.

In order for repairs to supply an economically feasible option, the total bill for this service must remain below the cost of purchasing and installing comparable air conditioning equipment. Additionally, technicians must possess confidence the corrections they make will continue to function effectively and safely for the foreseeable future. An air conditioning system which breaks down at frequent intervals may ultimately prove costlier than the selection and installation of new, modern AC equipment.

Replacement: Sometimes A Necessary Option

Our technicians also possess the skills required to assist both residential and commercial customers by installing new AC equipment. In some situations, this course of action proves preferable because a manufacturer has gone out of business and no longer supplies suitable replacement components for an aging system. Additionally, a customer may request the installation of new technology in order to obtain enhanced energy efficiency, or for other reasons.

For instance, in some commercial and manufacturing settings, companies seek to upgrade older air conditioning units periodically in order to renovate their facilities. We honor these requests, of course. Our repair technicians possess firsthand experience with a wide variety of makes and models of air conditioning equipment. We strive to ensure the complete satisfaction of our customers.
