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 expenditures from continuous repairs can really accumulate, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big venture. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few factors 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 created today will be highly 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 heated summer months.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be able to note instantly. If your house cannot stay at a constant 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 flag your AC is on its final leg. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A giant 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 great sign that your air conditioner is near its end can be checking your energy bills and noting they are getting more and more expensive. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big upsurge, 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.
