Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The costs from constant repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you pick either option, there are a few things to consider to be confident 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 extremely 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 hot summer days. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be capable to notice instantly. If your house cannot hang around a fixed and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or due 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 clue your AC is on its last lap. 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 modern system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills?
