Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a tough decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you choose either route, there are a few factors to consider to be confident 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 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 days. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be capable to detect right away. If your house cannot remain a steady and cozy 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 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 measure your energy usage this year to last year. A large increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a new system.
