Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really rack up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you pick either option, there are a few things to remember to be sure that it’s time to stop fixing 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 extremely 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 temperatures.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how 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 seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its final leg. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A giant increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a new system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A great signal that your air conditioner is near its end can be examining your energy bills and noticing they are getting higher and higher. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big escalation, know that a new system will be able to work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
