Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a hard decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your whole system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a huge decision. So, before you decide on either choice, there are a few things to remember to be certain 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 considering a replacement system. An AC built today will be more 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 hot summer temperatures. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able to notice right away. If your house cannot hang around a fixed and comfortable 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 seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its last round. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A large increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a modern system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills?
