Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a hard decision, choosing if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to change your entire system. The expenses from incessant repairs can really accumulate, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a huge venture. So, before you choose either route, there are a few details to remember to be certain that it’s time to stop fixing and start replacing: How often does your system break down?

If your house cannot stay at a constant and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong 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 last leg.
