Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a hard decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The costs from constant repairs can really accumulate, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a huge investment. So, before you choose either option, there are a few details to think about 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 considering a replacement system. An AC made 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 scorching summer months. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able to notice immediately. If your house cannot remain 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 final 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 current system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills?
