Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a hard decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your entire system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really add up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few factors to consider to be sure that it’s time to stop restoring 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 looking into a replacement system. An AC made today will be more energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to fret 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 notice instantly. If your house cannot hang around a constant 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 leg. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A high increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a current system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills?
