Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really accumulate, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a huge venture. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few details to remember to be confident that it’s time to stop repairing and start replacing: How often does your system break down?

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 sign your AC is on its ending leg.
