Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a tough decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your whole system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really accumulate, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a huge investment. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few factors to remember to be sure that it’s time to stop repairing 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 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 temperatures. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able to note right away. If your house cannot stay at a constant 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 seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its last lap. 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?
