Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a hard decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your whole system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you choose either route, there are a few things to consider to be certain 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 created today will be highly 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 days.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be capable to detect immediately. If your house cannot stay at a constant and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong 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 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 new system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A nice sign that your air conditioner is near its end can be examining your energy bills and observing they are getting more and more expensive. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big escalation, know that a new system can work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
