Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a hard decision, deciding if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The costs from incessant repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few things to think about 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC created today will be highly 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 detect instantly. If your house cannot remain a constant and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or up 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 measure your energy usage this year to last year. A large 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 nice indicator 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 huge increase, know that the latest system knows how to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
