Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a tough decision, determining if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The costs from incessant repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few details to consider 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 created today will be highly 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 scorching summer days. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should know how to note right away. If your house cannot hang around a fixed and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or in line 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 clue your AC is on its last 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 new system.
