Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The expenses from constant repairs can really rack up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you choose either option, there are a few things to think about 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC built today will be highly 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 months. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able to notice instantly. If your house cannot remain a fixed and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or up for a replacement. How old if your system? If you’ve observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its last round. Look at your bill and compare 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 work harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills? A good signal that your air conditioner is near its end can be inspecting your energy bills and noticing they are getting higher and higher.
