Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large investment. So, before you pick either route, there are a few things to think about to be sure that it’s time to stop repairing 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 contemplating 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 hot summer months.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be able to notice right away. 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 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 clue your AC is on its final leg. 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 work harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A good signal that your air conditioner is near its end can be examining your energy bills and observing they are getting higher and higher. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big upsurge, know that the latest system can work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
