Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a difficult decision, choosing if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your entire system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few details to think about 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 looking into a replacement system. An AC made 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 months.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be capable to detect instantly. If your house cannot stay at a steady and comfortable 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 final 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 task harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A good signal that your air conditioner is near its end can be inspecting your energy bills and noticing they are getting pricier and pricier. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big increase, know that a new system can work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
