Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 As a homeowner one of the toughest decisions you’ll have to make is concluding whether your system is in longing of an AC repair or if it’s time for a replacement system. A new AC is a huge investment, but so is the figure of consistently repairing a system that is in need of replacement. There are a few signs that it may be time to layoff repairing and look into replacing. The Age of Your System 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. Frequent Breakdowns Occasional repairs may transpire, but if your air conditioner is breaking down multiple times a season, it’s probably time to start looking into a replacement. The money you’re putting into your old system could be used to invest in a current, high-efficiency system. Your Energy Bills are Rising 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. Your Home is Uncomfortable You’ll notice this issue right away.
