Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to swap out your entire system. The costs from continuous repairs can really add up, 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 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 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 days. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able to detect immediately. If your house cannot stay at a steady and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or up 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 sign your AC is on its ending leg. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A giant increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a modern system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills? A nice signal that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be checking your energy bills and noticing they are getting pricier and pricier.
