Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a hard decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really rack up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big decision. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few things to consider to be confident 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 looking into 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 fear 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 instantly. If your house cannot stay at a steady and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong 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 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 great signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be examining your energy bills and noticing they are getting more and more expensive. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large increase, know that a new system will be able to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
