It can be a tough decision, determining if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to change your whole system. The costs from incessant repairs can really accumulate, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you choose either route, there are a few things to consider to be sure that it’s time to stop restoring and start replacing:
- How often does your system break down?
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 fret about being left to sweat it out during those hot summer days.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should know how to notice 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 in line for a replacement.
- How old if your system?
If you’ve seen 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 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.
- How high are your energy bills?
A nice sign that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be inspecting your energy bills and noting they are getting higher and higher. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge increase, know that a new system knows how to work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
