Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a difficult 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 rack up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few factors to think about to be confident 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 looking into 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 fear 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 constant and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or up for a replacement.

  5. How old if your system?
  6. If you’ve seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its final round. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A giant increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a modern system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A great signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be examining 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 increase, know that a new system can work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
