Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a hard decision, deciding if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really add up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a huge venture. So, before you choose either option, there are a few factors to consider 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 considering a replacement system. An AC created today will be highly 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 heated summer days. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should know how to detect right away. If your house cannot remain a fixed and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or in line 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 round. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A high 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 great signal that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be checking your energy bills and observing they are getting higher and higher.
