Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your entire 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 choose either option, there are a few things to consider to be certain that it’s time to stop repairing 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 highly 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 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 comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or in line 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 leg. 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 signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be examining your energy bills and observing they are getting higher and higher. 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 an increase in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
