Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a hard decision, determining if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big venture. So, before you pick either option, there are a few details to think about to be sure 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 looking into a replacement system. An AC created today will be extremely 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 notice immediately. If your house cannot hang around 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 noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its last lap. Look at your bill and measure 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 work harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A good indicator that your air conditioner is close to dying can be checking your energy bills and observing they are getting higher and higher. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big upsurge, know that the latest system knows how to work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
