Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to replace your malfunctioning air conditioner and suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous comfort.

Ahem, pardon our Shakespearean, but this question does deserve a soliloquy of its own. Where must the line be drawn, between an air conditioner that’s just having a bad time and an AC that needs an entire replacement?
