Do You Need Aircon Repair? Or A New Air Conditioner?

Should you replace your air conditioner? Or would it be a better decision to get the air conditioner repaired?

At times like this, you need input from the experts. At Breeze Air Conditioning, we’ve been in aircon repairs Newcastle for long enough to give you the right advice in this regard.

Can My Air Conditioner be Repaired?

  • A rule of thumb is when the repair will cost a quarter the price of a new unit or less.
  • When damage to your unit is straightforward, such as blocked drain lines, a ductwork issue, or simple electrical faults.
  • If your aircon unit is less than 10 years old, most repairs will restore optimal efficiency.
  • If your energy bill has remained consistent over the past 12 months.

Should I Replace My Air Conditioner?

  • If your air conditioning unit is more than 10 years old, it’s likely to be using outmoded and possibly dangerous refrigerants.
  • When there is damage to major parts, such as the motor, compressor and condenser coils. In this case, repair costs are likely to exceed 25% of the cost of a new air conditioner.
  • When your electricity bills have spiked.
  • You’re needing to call out an engineer frequently.
  • When the unit you have is not right for the space it conditions. Both undersized and oversized aircons should really be replaced.
