Deciding whether to repair or replace your air conditioning system is no easy matter. However, it’s not a decision that you need to make on your own. EMS Ltd will discuss your options with you and work with you to find the best solution. Here are some of the factors that should be taken into consideration.
Cost of repairs vs cost of replacement
Simple repairs or replacement of minor components can be inexpensive but the cost of rectifying larger parts may approach the cost of a complete system.
Air Conditioning Compliance
As your contractor we will keep you up to date on the latest compliance issues including F-GAS regulations that affect you and your business. If your air conditioning equipment is using a refrigerant that is subject to phase down or banned this will need to be taken into consideration when deciding whether to repair or replace.
A new air conditioning system would be up to 100% more efficient than your defective system. So if the application demands a 24/7 operating time then the reduced running costs might be a determining factor.
You might want to consider a replacement if the defective system serves an area which it was not originally designed for. For example, if an office layout has changed. In this case a replacement could cater for the new application more efficiently.
All these factors need to be considered with care and understanding of your air conditioning equipment. If you would like some more advice about your equipment, please give us a call.
