Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement

Installation
Repair
Service

It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your whole system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you decide on either route, 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 more 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 days.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be capable to detect right away. If your house cannot stay at a fixed 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 clue your AC is on its ending 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 nice sign that your air conditioner is close to dying can be examining your energy bills and noticing they are getting more and more expensive. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big escalation, know that a fresh system knows how to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
