New Compressor or Replace AC Unit - 7 years old (General)

submitted by Scinetic to /forum/general

We have 2 Lennox AC units...one large unit and a smaller unit for the second floor. They were installed when our house was built in 2003. We found out today that the smaller upstairs unit needs a new compressor. Should we replace the compressor or have a new unit (possibly bigger) installed. Our neighbors just replaced their Lennox unit with an Ameristar.

Need some advice on whether to repair the compressor or replace the whole unit...can anyone offer some input? We've never had to replace or repair an air conditioner in any of our houses and I can't believe this has only lasted 7 years. Thanks in advance!

Just buy one new one and get busy.

There is a third option - to turn to professionals. For example, you can refer to Appliancerepairinusa. I often use their services and have never been upset by a bad repair.

Ask for repair cost. If the cost is more than 25% of getting a new a/c Go with a new one.

7 years is already good. There are better ones right now which can also save you electricity cost. Old ones tend to consume more power. Consider purchasing a new one. Hope you could look into window installation bradenton, hurricane impact windows bradenton, window companies bradenton, hurricane windows and doors bradenton, windows and doors installation bradenton, bradenton windows, replacement windows near me, window replacement bradenton, hurricane proof windows near me and hurricane impact doors bradenton
