Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a difficult decision, choosing if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to change your entire system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few things to think about to be sure 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 contemplating 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 fear about being left to sweat it out during those hot summer months. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should know how to detect immediately. 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 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 sign 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. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills? A great sign that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be examining your energy bills and noting they are getting pricier and pricier.
