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 swap out your entire system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a huge venture. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few things to consider to be sure that it’s time to stop restoring 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 considering 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 fear about being left to sweat it out during those hot summer days.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to note instantly. If your house cannot stay at a steady and comfortable 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 sign 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 current system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A good indicator that your air conditioner is close to dying can be checking your energy bills and noting they are getting more and more expensive. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge escalation, know that a new system will be able to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
