Your family, employees, and customers all deserve to be comfortable inside your home or facility. Hydro-Flo Plumbing & Heating is a residential air conditioning specialist. We know how cranky the kids can get when they are hot, so we offer several different options for air conditioner installation. Let our knowledgeable staff explain the differences between central air conditioning and ductless mini-splits. Depending on the size of your home, the smaller style may be more efficient.

Deciding Whether to Repair or Replace Your Air Conditioner
In some cases, you may only need air conditioner repair services. We promise never to sell you a product or service that you do not need, but we also vow to be honest with our suggestions for replacing your unit altogether. There are a few rules of thumb about deciding whether to repair or replace your air conditioner, and they involve:
- Age of AC Unit – If your air conditioner is more than 15 years old, it is time to replace it. A typical lifespan is 10-15 years, at which point it will start deteriorating. Additionally, newer versions are much more efficient.
- Rising Energy Bills – Ever-increasing energy bills despite no changes in your routine are an indication that your AC unit is not operating optimally. Replacing it will ultimately save you money.
- Repair Costs – If you must frequently repair your AC unit or it will cost a substantial amount to complete a single repair, you should replace your unit. Typically, you should not bother with repairs exceeding $5,000 or half the cost of a new unit, whichever is lower.
Factors to Consider When Choosing an AC Unit
Choosing a new air conditioning unit is no small task. Many factors go into making the right selection. Hydro-Flo Plumbing & Heating is proud to help. We have extensive industry experience, and our friendly team can direct you toward the residential or commercial air conditioner that will best fit your needs. Factors to consider when choosing your air conditioner include:
- Size of the unit
- Size of your property
- Air quality
- Potential future upgrades
- Installation location
- Necessary accessories and additional equipment

AC Installation and Repair Q&A
When should I have my unit replaced rather than repaired?
Your AC unit should be replaced about once every 15 years, given that it is well-maintained and serviced by a professional; however, if you find that multiple components of your system (such as your coil compressors or motors) are falling apart and becoming dysfunctional, it may be more cost-effective to replace the entire unit at once.
How long can AC installation take?
The average AC installation process can take around 4-8 hours. Your technician will have your new system up and running by the end of the day.
How can I make my equipment last longer?
Regular maintenance by a professional is the recommended way to make your unit’s equipment last longer and avoid costly repairs and energy bills later on.
What types of AC systems are there?
There is a large variety of AC systems used for every purpose imaginable. Residential AC units (systems you may use for your home or small space) include central AC, ductless mini splits, window ACs, and portable ACs. Commercial AC units include single-split systems, multi-split systems, and VRF or VRV AC. Be sure to consult with your HVAC professional for what solution is best for your needs.
Can I run my AC without a filter?
No. While it may technically be possible, running your system without a filter will leave your system vulnerable to debris that can damage your unit and lead to expensive repairs.
What are some basic ways I can keep my unit operating efficiently?
Some easy ways you can maintain your system in-between professional maintenance checks are to clean off the exterior of your unit, change your filters every 30-90 days, and keep pests away from your HVAC system.
What can lead to an AC unit being less efficient?
There are a variety of things that may lead to your AC unit working less efficiently over time; these include letting pest such as insects into your system, letting ice build-up around your AC, not conducting an energy audit, constantly running your unit no matter the temperature or if you’re home, and not changing the filter.
