Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a huge investment. So, before you choose either route, there are a few factors to think about to be confident 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 made today will be highly 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 heated summer months.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be capable to note instantly. If your house cannot remain a fixed and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or up 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 flag your AC is on its final lap. 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 current 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 on its last leg can be checking your energy bills and observing they are getting more and more expensive. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge upsurge, know that the latest system can work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
