Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a hard decision, choosing if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The costs from constant repairs can really accumulate, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you pick either option, there are a few details to consider 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 looking into a replacement system. An AC made today will be extremely 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 scorching summer days.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to note immediately. If your house cannot stay at a fixed and cozy 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 noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its last round. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A large increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a current 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 signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be inspecting your energy bills and noticing they are getting pricier and pricier. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large escalation, know that a fresh system can work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
