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 replace your full system. The costs from continuous repairs can really accumulate, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you decide on either choice, there are a few details to remember to be confident 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 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 scorching summer temperatures. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be capable to detect instantly. If your house cannot stay at a fixed and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or due 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 flag your AC is on its final lap. 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 modern system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills?
