Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a tough decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your whole system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really rack up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few factors to remember to be confident 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 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 fear about being left to sweat it out during those heated summer temperatures. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able to notice right away. If your house cannot stay at a constant and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper 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 lap. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A large increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a current system.
