Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a hard decision, choosing if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to change your entire system. The costs from incessant repairs can really rack up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you pick either route, there are a few details to remember to be certain 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 looking into 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 scorching summer temperatures. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able to note immediately. If your house cannot remain a fixed and cozy 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 observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its final leg. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A giant increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a current system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills?
