Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a tough decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to change your whole system. The costs from constant repairs can really rack up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few details to remember 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 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 scorching summer temperatures.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be capable to detect instantly. If your house cannot remain a steady and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or up for a replacement.

  5. How old if your system?
  6. If you’ve seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its final leg. 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 new 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 indicator that your air conditioner is close to dying can be inspecting your energy bills and noticing they are getting higher and higher. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge escalation, know that the latest system will be able to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
