Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your entire system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really rack up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a huge investment. So, before you pick either option, there are a few details to think about to be confident that it’s time to stop repairing 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 scorching summer months. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should know how to notice right away. If your house cannot stay at a steady and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or due 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 ending lap. 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 new system.
