Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to swap out your whole system. The costs from continuous repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a huge venture. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few factors to remember to be sure 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 considering a replacement system. An AC created 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 heated summer temperatures.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be able to note right away. If your house cannot hang around a constant and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or due for a replacement.

  5. How old if your system?
  6. If you’ve noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its ending round. 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 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 on its last leg can be examining your energy bills and observing they are getting more and more expensive. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge upsurge, know that a new system will be able to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
