Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs 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 choice, there are a few factors to consider to be sure 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 made 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 heated summer days. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able to detect immediately. 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 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 sign your AC is on its last leg. 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 current 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 checking your energy bills and observing they are getting higher and higher.
