Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a hard decision, choosing if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The costs from continuous repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you pick either route, there are a few factors to consider 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 fret about being left to sweat it out during those heated summer days. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be capable to detect immediately. If your house cannot stay at a constant and comfy 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 noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its final round. 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 task harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills?
