Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to swap out your whole system. The costs from continuous repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few details 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 built today will be more 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 be capable to notice immediately. If your house cannot remain a constant and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or due 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 ending lap. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A large 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 good signal that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be checking your energy bills and noticing they are getting higher and higher. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge escalation, know that the latest system will be able to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
