Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a tough decision, deciding if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenditures from incessant repairs can really accumulate, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a large investment. So, before you pick either option, there are a few things to remember to be confident 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC made today will be extremely 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 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 fixed and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or in line 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 lap. Look at your bill and measure 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 great indicator that your air conditioner is near its end can be checking your energy bills and noticing they are getting pricier and pricier. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large upsurge, know that the latest system will be able to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
