Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a difficult decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your whole system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a huge investment. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few details to think about to be sure that it’s time to stop fixing 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 considering a replacement system. An AC made today will be highly 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 note right away. If your house cannot stay at a steady and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or up for a replacement. How old if your system? If you’ve noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its ending lap. Look at your bill and analyze 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?
