Waiting until summer to repair or replace your AC is a major expense and inconvenience for homeowners.

Understanding the risks and costs associated with your AC unit can save you big in the long run.

Risk of an Unmaintained AC Unit

Much like a car, your AC unit is a machine that needs maintained and ran on a regular basis to avoid costly repairs down the road. When your AC is dormant for more than 3 months, the probability it will not run properly when you need it the most drastically increases. Not only does it increase the risk of repair, but unmaintained AC units also decreases the lifespan of your AC. AC units can last up to 20 years if it is maintained properly.

Costs of AC Repair

The cost to repair a broken air conditioning unit can vary depending on the specific problem and the brand of air conditioner being serviced. However, homeowners run the risk of improper repairs, delayed service calls or overly-priced repair services during the summer when HVAC companies are busiest. Availability of a trusted, HVAC contractor is a major factor of quality and timely repair.

When it comes to dollars and cents, air conditioning repair services (on average) run as low as $53 or as high as $900 (1).
