Deciding to update rather than service AC

The following July, the two of us faced the same problem

A few years ago, in the middle of July, I observed the house rapidly feeling overheated. I could hear the a/c running, so I assumed that the issue was caused by the especially sizzling day. The outdoor temperature has soared into the upper nineties as well as the humidity was brutal. I lowered the temperature control by many degrees. A couple later, the house seemed hotter rather than cooler. I held my hand up to the vent as well as felt sizzling air pouring out. Fiddling with the temperature control made no difference. When I called for repair, I fully expected the worker to request a full updatement. The a/c was already in locale when we’d purchased the house many years before. At that time, the two of us observed how seasoned as well as corroded the system looked. The machine was dented, severely big as well as super loud. It made so much noise that I often startled when it cycled on. It was occasionally taxing to hear the television over the operational noise of the cooling system. However, the worker found a really small refrigerant leak. He said there was no way to be sure whether the leak was seasoned or new. He suggested replenishing as well as recharging the refrigerant as well as hoping for the best. The maintenance could last us many days or many years. The cost of materials as well as labor cost myself and others 2 hundred dollars so I felt it was worth it. The maintenance sufficed for exactly 1 year. The following July, the two of us faced the same problem. When I felt the sizzling air pouring from the vents, I decided it was time for a modern a/c. Although the investment was much larger than another repair, we’ve benefited from a much quieter, more efficiency as well as higher efficiency cooling system.
