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

It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your entire system. The expenses from constant repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few factors 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 contemplating 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 able to notice right away. If your house cannot stay at a constant and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect 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 sign 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 new system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A good indicator that your air conditioner is on its last leg 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 will be able to work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
