Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a difficult decision, choosing if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really add up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big decision. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few things to consider to be sure that it’s time to stop repairing 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 built today will be more 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 right away. If your house cannot remain a constant and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper 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 clue your AC is on its ending lap. Look at your bill and measure 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 great signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be checking your energy bills and noticing they are getting higher and higher.
