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 swap out your entire system. The expenses from incessant repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few things to consider 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC built today will be extremely 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 days. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should know how to note instantly. If your house cannot remain a fixed and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper 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 sign your AC is on its final round. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A large 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 nice indicator that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be inspecting your energy bills and noting they are getting higher and higher.
