Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a hard decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The expenses from constant repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you choose either route, there are a few details to consider 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 looking into a replacement system. An AC made 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 scorching summer days.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be able to note immediately. If your house cannot remain a constant and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or in line 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 sign your AC is on its last round. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A large 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 nice sign that your air conditioner is close to dying can be inspecting your energy bills and noticing they are getting pricier and pricier. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big escalation, know that the latest system can work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
