Your air conditioner chugs along reliably each day, never giving you any trouble or refusing to do its job — then one day, it stops. On that fateful day, you have to make a choice — should you repair or replace your old and faithful air conditioner? A breakdown doesn’t automatically mean you need a new unit, but sometimes it’s better to replace it now rather than face a future of mounting repair bills. How do you know?
Much of the time, you’ll be fine repairing your air conditioner rather than replacing it. Often, your air conditioner technician will provide you some guidance in this area, but if it’s not a clear-cut decision or you’re sweating bullets while you wait for help to arrive, take a look at our reasons for vs. replacing your air conditioner:
Despite the comfort your air conditioner has brought to your home, sometimes it’s simply not cost-effective to continue bandaging it up and keep it limping it along. It’s probably time to say goodbye to your old friend if the repairs won’t extend its life long enough to justify the investment, or if any of the following apply:

Precision Air & Heating is truly a reputable company and certainly number one for service in my book. Shawn, the repair manager was extremely helpful and professional. I would recommend them for both installation of a new system as well as repairs on your existing AC.
We were visiting our Arizona home from New York, when on one of the hottest days in August the air conditioning was not working. We called Precision & James Shelton worked to get the air up & running in no time. He was courteous & sympathetic, working hard to repair our central air…we have a warranty & Precision stands behind their work, they are available 24/7… Thank you!
Service was completed in a timely manner and my technician was extremely knowledgeable. All services were explained to me prior to being completed as far as the need and cost are concerned. My air conditioning unit has been problem-free all year and I believe it’s because of the professional maintenance that I get yearly from Precision Air.
