Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a hard decision, deciding if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to replace your whole system. The costs from constant repairs can really rack up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you pick either option, there are a few factors to think about 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 worry 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 note immediately. If your house cannot hang around a constant 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 noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its final lap. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A giant 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?
