Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a difficult decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to change your whole system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really add up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few factors to consider 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC built today will be extremely 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 heated summer days.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be able to detect right away. If your house cannot hang around a steady and comfy 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 seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its ending leg. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A large increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a current system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A great signal that your air conditioner is near its end can be examining your energy bills and noting they are getting pricier and pricier. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big escalation, know that a fresh system can work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
