What to Do When You Need a New Air Conditioner

air-conditioning-repairWhen your air conditioner is ready to retire, you should want to figure out the next step before you completely lose the ability to cool your house. While an air conditioner replacement in Portland isn’t going to be avoidable, there are two ways to go about handling this situation to deal with getting a new system in place.

We’ve described your options below so you can see how best to handle the situation so you can enjoy a comfortable, cool summer this year.

Option 1: Ignore, DIY, and Deal with Discomfort

The first option to handle an old AC that needs to retire is what too many people choose. This course of action involves ignoring the situation until the system completely stops working. After your old AC gives out, the next step is trying to replace it through a DIY attempt or by calling in amateur services to get the job done on the cheap. As you may have guessed, this rarely works out well, and instead, people who go this route often end up struggling their way through summer because their new system isn’t installed properly and therefore doesn’t work the way it should.

Option 2: Be Aware, Call a Pro, And Enjoy

The second option is the one that we think is a much better choice because it ensures your comfort. In this case, you know what the warning signs are of a failing air conditioner that needs to be replaced including old air, the use of R-22 refrigerant, the inability to produce cool air, and an excessive need for overly expensive repairs. (We’d like to add that if a repair costs more than half of the amount it would take to purchase a new system, it is better to opt for the replacement). Because you know what the warning signs are, when you pick up on one or two of them, you contact a professional technician before you AC fully fails. This gives you a chance to discuss your new system options and schedule a replacement without missing out on any comfort.

As you might imagine in this scenario, there is less stress and discomfort and you are guaranteed to have a new AC unit that is in perfect working order so you can enjoy the summer season.
