It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your entire system. The expenditures from incessant repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a huge venture. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few factors 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 considering a replacement system. An AC created today will be more 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 heated summer days.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should be capable to note instantly. If your house cannot hang around a constant and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or up for a replacement.
- How old if your system?
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 round. 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.
- How high are your energy bills?
A nice signal that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be inspecting your energy bills and noting they are getting higher and higher. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large upsurge, know that the latest system will be able to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
