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 whole system. The costs from incessant repairs can really rack up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a huge venture. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few things to remember to be certain 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 considering 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 hot summer temperatures. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able to notice instantly. If your house cannot hang around a steady and comfy 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 observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its last lap. Look at your bill and compare 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?
