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 replace your full system. The expenses from constant repairs can really accumulate, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large investment. So, before you pick either route, there are a few things to think about to be certain 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 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 fret about being left to sweat it out during those hot summer months. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should know how to notice instantly. If your house cannot remain a steady and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or due for a replacement. How old if your system? If you’ve observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its ending 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 try harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills?
