The AC condenser is the outside portion of an air conditioner unit that either collects or releases heat. Whether you need to install, replace or repair your AC condenser, there are a few things to consider before making that decision. This type of job is not something that you should do on your own. It is best to schedule a professional to investigate any issues that the AC condenser may have so that they can determine whether to replace or repair the condenser and determine the best course of action.
Fix Your HVAC Condenser
Before making a decision to replace or repair a condenser that needs attention, a major thing to consider is the age of your AC unit. If your unit is 10 years or older, the best thing to do would actually be to replace the entire unit. Some companies may try to tell you that you could replace or repair your condenser piece to save the unit from total replacement, but because an older unit runs much less efficiently, it may end up causing you many more issues down the road that could cost you more money than replacing the entire unit in general. If you suspect you are having any issues with your AC condenser and or unit, the best thing to do would be to call a professional to investigate which option would be best for you.
Condenser Repair Company
Some people may try to save their AC unit from replacement by exploring the option to repair the condenser, but AC units that consistently demand frequent repairs may signal that it is time for a replacement. If the compressor or condenser pieces fail, then that is also a signal to replace your AC unit. Repairing the condenser is most often not worth it down the road and will eventually cost you more money.
Residential & Commercial HVAC
Residential HVAC systems service the heating and cooling of homes and small businesses whereas commercial HVAC systems service corporate, large, industrial buildings. Commercial HVAC units are significantly larger than residential HVAC units because they are typically more expensive and complex and they require a collaborative system of professionals of multiple contractors.
Full Condenser Unit Replacement
A good rule of thumb to go by when it is time to make the decision to replace your unit is if the age of the UC unit multiplied by the cost to repair it equals more than $5,000, then the unit should be replaced. If the total is less than $5,000, then the unit should be repaired. Pay attention to your unit if it is constantly breaking down, not cooling the home efficiently, or making any loud noises because that may mean that it’s time to consider a full replacement.
HVAC Installation Services
When it is time to install a new HVAC unit, most companies will offer a free consultation. At the consultation, the professional will discuss and determine the right HVAC system for your home. They will also discuss energy savings and air quality preferences and perform a complete assessment of the home, current system and ductwork. After a course of action is agreed upon, an installation date will be set up and completed within as little as one day.
