We enjoy our occasional cool days here in the deserts of Southern California. But we’re always aware that hot days are just around the bend. Now it’s spring and the summer months are in sight, the Big Heat is coming soon.
Are you worried that your air conditioner won’t be able to take care of those 90°F+ days when they arrive? Do you have doubts about the air conditioner’s performance? Or has it never worked as well as you think it should?
In other words … is it time to install a new air conditioner in Palm Desert, CA?
To repair or to replace … that is the question, at least in HVAC. It’s a dilemma almost every homeowner will face at some point. Is the better route spending money for repairs to keep a system going for a few more years, or should the money be invested in a new system with a long service life ahead of it?
There’s no definite answer, because each situation is different. In some cases, it only takes a single targeted repair to give an air conditioner 4 to 5 more years of effective service. That’s a worthwhile investment. But if the repairs are going to pile up, one after the other, just to allow the AC to squeak by each summer, then it’s wiser to put in a new system and relax.
Let’s break this down in to a series of smaller questions to help narrow your decision.
