Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a tough decision, deciding if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The expenses from incessant repairs can really add up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big venture. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few details to remember to be sure that it’s time to stop fixing and start replacing: How often does your system break down?

An AC created today will be highly energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to fear about being left to sweat it out during those scorching summer temperatures. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able to note instantly. If your house cannot stay at a steady and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or up for a replacement. How old if your system? If you’ve seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its last leg. Look at your bill and compare 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.
