Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few things to consider to be certain that it’s time to stop restoring 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 looking into 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 worry about being left to sweat it out during those hot summer days. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should know how to detect instantly. If your house cannot hang around 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 flag your AC is on its last round. 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 try harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills? A nice indicator that your air conditioner is near its end can be checking your energy bills and observing they are getting pricier and pricier.
