Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a hard decision, deciding if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really rack up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a huge venture. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few details 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 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 fret about being left to sweat it out during those scorching summer temperatures.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to notice right away. If your house cannot hang around a steady and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or in line 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 flag your AC is on its ending 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 good indicator that your air conditioner is near its end can be checking your energy bills and noting they are getting more and more expensive. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge escalation, know that the latest system will be able to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
