Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a tough decision, determining if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your whole system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a huge decision. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few factors 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 built 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 heated summer days.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be capable to notice instantly. If your house cannot hang around a steady and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong 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 flag your AC is on its final leg. 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 modern 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 sign that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be examining your energy bills and noting they are getting pricier and pricier. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large increase, know that a fresh system can work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
