Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to change your entire system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a huge investment. So, before you pick either option, there are a few things to consider to be sure 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 made 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 hot summer days.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to notice right away. If your house cannot stay at a steady and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or up 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 sign your AC is on its last 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 new system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A good indicator that your air conditioner is near its end can be inspecting your energy bills and noticing they are getting more and more expensive. Compare 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 conserve your home energy.
