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 swap out your whole system. The expenses from incessant repairs can really accumulate, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you pick either option, there are a few things to consider to be certain that it’s time to stop fixing and start replacing: How often does your system break down?
