Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The expenses from constant repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few things to remember 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC created today will be more 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 hot summer temperatures.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be capable to detect right away. If your house cannot stay at a fixed and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or due 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 flag your AC is on its last leg. 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 current system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A nice signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be checking your energy bills and observing they are getting pricier and pricier. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge escalation, know that a new system can work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
