I have a window air conditioner that ain’t what she used to be.

Does it make sense to have a service tech come-out and give it a freon injection, or do most people throw-out air conditioners after 5 or 10 years?

It is a large, relatively expensive one, or I would just get a new one. Any suggestions on who to call in Madison?

I’m a “keep it going ‘til it explodes” sort of person, but two observations:

First, if you were going to remove it anyway to throw it away, it might be cheaper to take it to a repair person than have them make a house call.

Second, a good HVAC person can probably give you a better idea on this than I can. And I say this even knowing that the HVAC person does have a vested economic interest.

Don’t have recommendations for ay, though.

hello evalyn. my only suggestion is that if your AC has been with your for such a long time then perhaps it’s time to replace it with new one. otherwise, you will pay the same rate of electricity with less coolness or coldness that it brings. we have experienced it though it was a refrigerator that we paid for it’s repair but in less than six month it was broken again. it’s been with us like almost ten years then we’re a little bit hesitant to set it aside because of some sentimental reasons. however, we decided later that it’s time to forego it rather have it repair again. we bought a new refrigerator in which the difference from the charge we paid for the repair is like only US$1000++.

I definitely wouldn’t throw it out since it’s expensive and good air conditioners can be hard to come by. I suggest having someone coming to your house to try and fix it. Since it’s not that old they might have an easy fix for your issue.

Actually, I don’t like to use the air conditioner. But climate change is not acceptable to my health condition Hostsailor web hosting . So for handling my health the need of the Ac is a very essential one. But I am always trying to use this in a controlled manner.
