Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 As a homeowner one of the difficult decisions you’ll have to make is concluding whether your system is in demand of an AC repair or if it’s time for a replacement system. A new AC is a big investment, but so is the figure of continually repairing a system that is in need of replacement. There are a few signs that it may be time to layoff repairing and glance into replacing. The Age of Your System 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 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. Frequent Breakdowns Random repairs may transpire, but if your air conditioner is breaking down many times a season, it’s probably time to start looking into a replacement. The money you’re putting into your tired system could be used to invest in a new, high-efficiency system. Your Energy Bills are Rising If you’ve observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its last 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 modern system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy. Your Home is Uncomfortable You’ll notice this one immediately.
