Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a difficult decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The costs from incessant repairs can really rack 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 things to think about 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 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 hot summer months.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to notice right away. If your house cannot remain a constant and comfortable 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 observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its ending leg. 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 current system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A nice sign that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be examining your energy bills and observing they are getting pricier and pricier. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big upsurge, know that a fresh system can work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
