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 full system. The costs from constant repairs can really accumulate, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large investment. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few things to remember to be confident that it’s time to stop fixing 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 made 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 temperatures. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be capable to detect right away. If your house cannot remain a fixed and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or in line 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 sign your AC is on its final leg. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A giant increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a current system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills? A nice sign that your air conditioner is close to dying can be inspecting your energy bills and noticing they are getting pricier and pricier.
