It can be a tough decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really rack up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you pick either option, there are a few things to consider to be sure that it’s time to stop fixing and start replacing:
- How often does your system break down?
If your air conditioner is between 10-15 years old, it’s probably time to start contemplating a replacement system. An AC created today will be extremely 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 hot summer days.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should know how to notice immediately. If your house cannot hang around a steady and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or due for a replacement.
- How old if your system?
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 leg. Look at your bill and compare 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.
- How high are your energy bills?
A great sign that your air conditioner is near its end can be examining your energy bills and observing they are getting more and more expensive. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big upsurge, know that the latest system will be able to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
