Having an air con system in the office or your home to enjoy the cool and refreshed air? Many people took the comfortable lifestyle for granted and never thought about how an air con works to get the perfect cooling temperature for you. Several components are in an air con system to make it work perfectly. Replacing some components will be much cheaper compared to having an entire air conditioner replaced. However there are some components that are very expensive and it isn’t worth to replace them when it gets faulty. There are also some components which are also not replaceable at all.
What you should do is to first look into your warranty terms to see if what is being covered and the duration of cover. These few expensive parts will be not as worthwhile as replacing the whole air con system. Firstly is the condenser coil, this component is non replaceable and it is vital for the air conditioning system to work. It is normally covered in the warranty and you can only replace it with a new unit instead.
When purchasing an air conditioner system, it is normally covered by the manufacturer for all the air con parts during the first year. However, after the 1st year the warranty only covers the compressor which is the one of the most expensive part of the air con. The compressor usually has a longer warranty period which might be as long as 5 years.
The next part which cost around $600 or more is the evaporator coil, this part is also a necessary part that cools down the liquid that turns into vapor as it contacts with hot air. Getting this part replaced is tricky and often the cost is as good as having the whole system replaced. Unless you are able to do it yourself but most vendor does not sell the evaporator coil as a stand alone piece of component.
Conclusion, the key components of the air con system which is the condenser coil and expansion valve is not replaceable. The rest of the components like compressor, evaporator coil, condenser fan, evaporator fan and others are replaceable. Although replaceable, some components like the evaporator coil is not sold as an individual item and replacing it is as expensive as getting a new air condition system.
