Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a hard decision, determining if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The costs from continuous repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few things to remember to be certain 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 looking into 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 fear about being left to sweat it out during those hot summer temperatures. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should know how to detect right away. If your house cannot stay at a steady and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or in line 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 high increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a modern system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills?
