Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to change your whole system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large investment. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few details to think about 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC made 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 able to detect immediately. If your house cannot remain a fixed and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or due 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 sign your AC is on its ending round. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A giant increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a new system.
