Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really accumulate, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big decision. So, before you pick either option, there are a few details to consider 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 built today will be extremely energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to worry about being left to sweat it out during those scorching summer days. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should know how to note instantly. If your house cannot hang around a steady and cozy 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 noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its final round. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A giant increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a modern system.
