Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to replace your whole system. The costs from incessant repairs can really add up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a large investment. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few details to think about to be confident that it’s time to stop repairing and start replacing: How often does your system break down? If your air conditioner is between 10-15 years old, it’s probably time to start contemplating a replacement system. An AC made today will be extremely energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to fear about being left to sweat it out during those scorching summer months. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able to notice right away. If your house cannot hang around a fixed and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or due for a replacement. How old if your system? If you’ve seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its last round. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A giant increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a new system.
