Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to replace your whole system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really rack up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big venture. So, before you decide on either choice, there are a few things to think about 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 created today will be more 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 hot summer months.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to note immediately. If your house cannot remain a constant and comfy 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 seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its last lap. 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 modern 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 indicator that your air conditioner is near its end can be inspecting your energy bills and observing they are getting higher and higher. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge increase, know that a new system can work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
