Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your whole system. The expenditures from incessant repairs can really accumulate, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few details to remember to be certain 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 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 scorching summer temperatures. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should know how to note immediately. If your house cannot stay at a constant and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or up 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 leg. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A large 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 nice sign that your air conditioner is near its end can be examining your energy bills and noticing they are getting higher and higher.
