Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a tough decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The costs from continuous repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a huge decision. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few details to remember to be sure 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 considering 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 temperatures. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be capable to note immediately. If your house cannot remain a fixed and cozy 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 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?
