Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a hard decision, deciding if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your entire system. The expenditures from incessant repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a huge investment. So, before you pick either route, there are a few factors to think about to be sure that it’s time to stop restoring and start replacing:

  1. How often does your system break down?
  2. If your air conditioner is between 10-15 years old, it’s probably time to start considering a replacement system. An AC made today will be extremely energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to fret about being left to sweat it out during those heated summer months.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to notice right away. If your house cannot remain a steady and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or in line for a replacement.

  5. How old if your system?
  6. If you’ve noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its ending lap. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A large increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a current system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A nice sign that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be inspecting your energy bills and noticing they are getting pricier and pricier. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge upsurge, know that a new system will be able to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
