Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The expenditures from incessant repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few factors to think about to be sure that it’s time to stop fixing 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 created 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 heated summer months. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should know how to notice instantly. If your house cannot hang around a constant and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper 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 flag your AC is on its last lap. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A high increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a new system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills? A great sign that your air conditioner is close to dying can be examining your energy bills and noting they are getting more and more expensive.
