Your heater is vital to the comfort and efficiency of your home. The decision to repair or replace your system is just as important, and requires a thorough knowledge of how the system works and how long it’s supposed to last.

Unfortunately, most homeowners don’t have access to the details of this type of information.

To Repair or Not to Repair, That is the Question

September 2nd, 2019

Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to replace your malfunctioning air conditioner and suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous comfort.

Ahem, pardon our Shakespearean, but this question does deserve a soliloquy of its own. Where must the line be drawn, between an air conditioner that’s just having a bad time and an AC that needs an entire replacement?

Sometimes these criteria can be unknown to homeowners, and it comes as a surprise to them when it’s recommended that their old, faithful air conditioner should be replaced.

So, let’s help you get acquainted with that criteria.
