Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to change your entire system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you choose either option, there are a few things 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 created today will be highly energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to worry about being left to sweat it out during those hot summer months. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able to note immediately. If your house cannot remain a steady and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or up 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 ending leg. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A large increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a modern system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills?
