Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a hard decision, deciding if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big venture. So, before you choose either route, there are a few factors to think about to be certain 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 looking into a replacement system. An AC created today will be highly energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to fret about being left to sweat it out during those heated summer months. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able to notice right away. If your house cannot stay at a steady and comfortable 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 round. 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 work harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills? A nice indicator that your air conditioner is near its end can be examining your energy bills and noticing they are getting higher and higher.
