Is It Cheaper to Replace My AC Compressor or Just Get a New Air Conditioner?

There are many factors that come into play when you are trying to decide whether to just replace your compressor or to replace your entire unit. You want to make an informed decision that will be the best choice for your needs. By talking with a professional, you can learn which choice will be right for you.

Think About These Factors:
. Find out if your compressor is under warranty
. Learn if just replacing your compressor will mess up your energy efficiency
. Consider the fact that replacing your compressor without replacing your entire inside and outside unit could cause your unit to not last as long as it should
. Figure out if there is a big price difference in replacing your compressor and going ahead and just replacing your entire unit

Choose a New Compressor or a New AC Unit

To figure out if it would be cheaper to replace just your compressor or to replace your entire unit, you need to take warranties into consideration. Find out if your compressor is under warranty. If it is, it may be cheaper to have it replaced then to put out the money for a whole new unit.

Think about every factor including your energy efficiency. If you just replace your compressor, you may end up paying more in energy bills down the road. If you invest in a whole new unit, you will be getting the latest technology and a more energy efficient model.

If you just replace your compressor, your AC unit may not last as long as it should. You could be dealing with other problems in the future that will end up costing more money. If you do not fix each problem, your unit might not last as long as it should.

Talk with a professional company to see what the costs are to cost the compressor and what the costs will be to replace your entire unit. You may find out that there is not much of a price difference. An AC compressor is an expensive part of your unit. You should also consider the age of your unit before you invest too much into it. You could be better off just buying a new unit if yours is an older model.
