Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a hard decision, deciding if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The expenses from constant repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large investment. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few details to think about to be certain that it’s time to stop repairing 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 made 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 months.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be capable to notice immediately. If your house cannot remain a fixed and comfy 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 seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its last lap. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A high 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 good signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be inspecting your energy bills and noting they are getting pricier and pricier. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge escalation, know that a fresh system can work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
