Should I repair or replace my air conditioner?

The decision to repair or replace your existing AC system can be a tough one. Many factors come into play when making this decision including:

  • Age of your current air conditioning system

Often choosing to replace your outdated AC system can actually save you money in the long run due to increased efficiency and decreased utility bills. A licensed HVAC technician can help determine the right choice to repair or replace based on your current AC system and your comfort goals.

What would cause my AC not to come on?

There are several reasons an AC system may not come on. If you have this issue, check your thermostat for loose or disconnected wires.

If you look into these two solutions and still have an issue, give us a call. We are here to help.
