Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your whole system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you choose either option, there are a few details to consider 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 highly energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to worry about being left to sweat it out during those scorching summer days.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to notice immediately. If your house cannot remain a fixed and comfy 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 sign your AC is on its final lap. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A giant 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 great sign that your air conditioner is close to dying can be inspecting your energy bills and noting they are getting pricier and pricier. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large upsurge, know that the latest system will be able to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
