AC Replacement & Installation in Carterville
Many of our customers with older air conditioning systems in Carterville wonder when it is time to replace versus repair their system. Paschal recommends that you ask yourself several questions before making the replace vs. repair decision:
- Are my system repairs becoming more frequent and more expensive?
- Are my bills high because my system operates inefficiently?
- Does my new home addition need an AC system with increased capabilities?
- Does my system make loud noises while operating?
- Is my AC system more than 10-15 years old?
If the answer to any of these questions is “yes” then it may be time to consider a new system installation.

Does My Homeowner’s Insurance Policy Cover HVAC Systems?
Most standard homeowners insurance policies in Carterville provide coverage for heating and air systems if they are damaged due to a covered peril or disaster. These covered events will be clearly defined within your policy documentation. Insurance is designed to help cover sudden hazards like fires, explosions or damage from falling objects. If your AC unit breaks down from old age or regular wear and tear (the most common reasons for break downs), then your insurance company may not pay to have it repaired or replaced.
If you rarely change your air filter or fail to keep up with regular preventative maintenance, any damage incurred would likely be considered owner neglect and may not be covered under your insurance policy. That’s why it’s so important to stay up to date on your HVAC system maintenance.
