Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a hard decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really accumulate, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big venture. So, before you choose either route, there are a few details 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 looking into 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 fret about being left to sweat it out during those scorching summer months. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able to notice instantly. If your house cannot hang around a constant and comfortable 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 clue your AC is on its ending lap. 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 current system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills?
