Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a hard decision, deciding if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your whole system. The expenses from constant repairs can really rack up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a huge investment. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few details to remember to be certain 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 considering 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 scorching summer temperatures.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be capable to notice instantly. If your house cannot remain a constant and cozy 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 observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its ending 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 modern system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A great sign that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be inspecting 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 escalation, know that a fresh system will be able to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
