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 change your whole system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you pick either route, there are a few factors to consider to be certain that it’s time to stop repairing and start replacing: How often does your system break down?
