It can be a difficult 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 add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a huge investment. So, before you pick either route, there are a few things to consider to be certain 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 considering a replacement system. An AC made today will be extremely 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 be able to note immediately. If your house cannot remain a fixed and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or up 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 flag your AC is on its final lap. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A high 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.
- How high are your energy bills?
A great indicator that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be checking your energy bills and observing they are getting more and more expensive. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big 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.
