Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to change your whole system. The costs from incessant repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a huge decision. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few factors to think about to be sure 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 fret about being left to sweat it out during those heated summer months. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be capable to note instantly. If your house cannot stay at a constant and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong 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 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 current system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills?
