Should You repair Or Replace Your AC?
Deciding on whether you should repair or replace your air conditioner can be a difficult decision to make.
Consider the age of the unit. An air conditioner has a typical lifespan of around 10-15 years (According to the National Association of Home Builders – “Life Expectancy of Home Components”), so if your air conditioner is acting up, and it’s over 15-years-old, then it might be time to replace it.
Even if your central air conditioner is just eight to 10 years old, it may be using up to twice the electricity that a new one would use. Newer units have on average 30% lower cooling bills than equipment installed just a few years ago.

I like how you said that you can repair your AC unit for around 10 years or so because that's how long they typically last for. It's nice that you said that it might need to be fixed if your electrical bill increases. My husband and I are looking into HVAC contractors to repair our fairly new AC unit.
Ask yourself, "What's my system's condition? Does it need any major work?" If you don't know the answer to either of these question, it may be time to look at updating your system to a new, more efficient system. Although replacing your system may seem pricey, a new high-end HVAC unit is more efficient and will save your money over time.
