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 change your entire system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a huge decision. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few details to think about to be certain 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 considering a replacement system. An AC built 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 scorching summer months.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be able to detect immediately. If your house cannot stay at a fixed 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 analyze 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 work harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A great signal that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be checking your energy bills and noticing they are getting pricier and pricier. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge 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.
