Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a hard decision, determining if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to replace your entire system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you pick either route, there are a few factors to consider to be certain that it’s time to stop restoring 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 fret about being left to sweat it out during those heated summer days. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should know how to notice immediately. If your house cannot hang around a constant 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 noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its ending 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 modern system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills?
