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 swap out your full system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few details to consider 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC created today will be more 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 days. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able 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 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 last 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 new system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills?
