Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a hard decision, deciding if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to replace your whole system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really add up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a huge decision. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few details to consider 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 days. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able to note right away. If your house cannot remain a fixed and cozy 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 ending round. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A large increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a modern system.
