Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really rack up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large investment. So, before you pick either option, there are a few things to remember to be certain that it’s time to stop restoring and start replacing: How often does your system break down?

An AC made today will be extremely 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 hot summer temperatures. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be capable to detect immediately. If your house cannot stay at a fixed and comfy 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 seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its last round. 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.
