Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a huge decision. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few things to remember to be certain 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 built today will be more 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 know how to notice instantly. If your house cannot hang around a constant and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or due for a replacement.

  5. How old if your system?
  6. If you’ve noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its ending round. 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 new 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 sign that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be examining your energy bills and noting they are getting more and more expensive. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge increase, know that a new system knows how to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
