Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a difficult decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The expenditures from incessant repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few things to think about 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 looking into a replacement system. An AC made today will be highly 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 hot summer months. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should know how to note right away. If your house cannot hang around a steady and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or due 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 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 try harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills? A great indicator that your air conditioner is near its end can be inspecting your energy bills and observing they are getting more and more expensive.
