Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a hard decision, choosing if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The costs from constant repairs can really rack up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few details to remember to be sure 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 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 immediately. If your house cannot hang around a fixed and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect 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 flag 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 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 sign that your air conditioner is near its end 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 large escalation, know that a fresh system will be able to work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
