Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a tough decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The costs from incessant repairs can really add up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a huge decision. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few factors to consider to be certain 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 built 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 heated summer days. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be capable to note instantly. If your house cannot stay at a steady and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong 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 final round. 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.
