Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a hard decision, determining if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your whole system. The costs from constant repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a huge decision. So, before you pick either route, there are a few things 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 considering 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 hot 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 fixed 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 seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its ending leg. 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 current system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills? A nice indicator that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be inspecting your energy bills and noticing they are getting pricier and pricier.
