That’s the burning question when it comes to our trusty air conditioners! So, you’ve assessed the signs, done the math, and are now at the crossroads. What’s the next step in ensuring your home remains a haven of comfort?

Let’s start with some Pros & Cons to both:



  1. Cost-Effective: Fixing a specific issue might be lighter on the wallet initially.
  2. Familiarity: You know your old AC’s quirks and settings like the back of your hand.
  3. Eco-Friendly: Less electronic waste when you keep your appliances running longer.


  1. Temporary Fix: Sometimes, repairs are like putting a band-aid on a larger issue.
  2. Aging Components: Other parts might give out sooner rather than later.
  3. Efficiency Drop: Older models may not be as energy-efficient as newer counterparts.



  1. Energy Efficiency: New models often come with advanced technology, saving energy and money.
  2. Warranty: Enjoy the peace of mind with a fresh warranty.
  3. Improved Comfort: Modern ACs offer better temperature control and air quality.


  1. Upfront Cost: Purchasing a new unit can be a significant investment.
  2. Learning Curve: Adjusting to a new system might take a bit of time.
  3. Environmental Impact: Manufacturing and disposing of appliances contribute to environmental issues.

Helpful Tips

Another way to look at it is if your trusty unit is guzzling electricity or has undergone numerous repairs, opting for a replacement might be the wisest move. But fear not, there’s a straightforward test to guide you through this choice:

  1. Take the age of your air conditioner.
  2. Multiply it by the cost of repairs (reach out to us for a quick quote).

If the resulting cost exceeds AUD$1,500 for a Split system or AUD$5,000 for a Ducted Air Conditioner, it’s a clear signal that replacing the entire system is the more cost-effective option. Don’t find yourself stuck in a cycle of constant repairs when you can effortlessly upgrade to a new, efficient system.

Remember, your AC might still be salvageable if it’s emitting hot air, producing peculiar odours, making unusual sounds, or randomly shutting off. We’re here to help you make the right decision for your comfort and budget.

Ultimately, the decision depends on your budget, long-term goals, and the condition of your current AC.  Whether you stick with the familiar hum of your old unit or embrace the cool breeze of a brand new one, let’s keep our spaces comfortable and eco-conscious!
