Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your whole system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really accumulate, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a huge investment. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few factors to consider to be confident that it’s time to stop restoring and start replacing: How often does your system break down?
