It’s a Great Time to Repair or Replace Your Phoenix Air Conditioner

As anyone who’s ever spent a summer here knows, in Phoenix, Arizona, air conditioning is necessary. Phoenix air conditioners have to work much harder than air conditioning units in cooler climates, and typically must be replaced 2-3 times more often. This month, in fact, is one of the warmest Decembers on record in Arizona, which means your Phoenix air conditioner may still be hard at work.

While you’re enjoying this gorgeous weather, it’s the perfect time to repair or replace your air conditioner. A home heating and cooling system isn’t just a matter of comfort, but a matter of safety and savings.

Unsure whether it’s time to repair or replace? The knowledgeable people at Chas Roberts are happy to provide their expert opinion. To get an idea of what you might expect, consider the following:

When to repair your air conditioner:

  • If the cost of a replacement involves remodeling your home or other additional expenses
  • If you plan on moving soon
  • If your unit is relatively new and trouble-free, and is still mechanically sound

When to replace your A/C unit:

  • If your equipment is more than six years old. The average life span of an air conditioning unit in the Southwest is 6-12 years. Putting money into repairs does not guarantee additional problems are not close behind.
  • If your unit is not efficient or reliable. Modern equipment can save you $1,000 a year on your utility bill and can virtually eliminate low air quality, uneven heating and cooling, and many other problems. If you’re worried your unit might break down, it’s time to upgrade.
  • Before rebates expire. Rebates from APS and SRP may be discontinued at any time, so take advantage of them before they expire.
