Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a hard decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The costs from constant repairs can really rack up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you choose either route, there are a few factors to think about to be confident 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC built today will be highly 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 heated summer months. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should know how to detect immediately. If your house cannot stay at a steady and comfortable 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 observed 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 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 modern 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 close to dying can be inspecting your energy bills and noticing they are getting more and more expensive.
