Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a tough decision, deciding if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The costs from constant repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few details to think about to be certain 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 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 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 capable to note right away. If your house cannot stay at a constant and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong 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 clue your AC is on its final leg. Look at your bill and measure 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 task harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills?
