Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenditures from incessant repairs can really add up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you pick either route, there are a few things to remember to be confident 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 extremely 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 hot summer temperatures.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be capable to note immediately. If your house cannot hang around a steady 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 observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its ending leg. Look at your bill and compare 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 task 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 inspecting your energy bills and observing they are getting pricier and pricier. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large increase, know that a new system can work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
