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 replace your full system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you pick either option, there are a few things to consider to be sure 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 contemplating 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 worry 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 note immediately. If your house cannot hang around a constant and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or up for a replacement. How old if your system? If you’ve noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its ending round. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A large increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a new system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills? A great sign that your air conditioner is close to dying can be checking your energy bills and observing they are getting higher and higher.
