Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a difficult decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your whole system. The expenses from constant repairs can really rack up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you choose either route, there are a few details to think about to be confident 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC built today will be highly 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 scorching summer months.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to detect immediately. If your house cannot hang around a fixed and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or in line 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 flag your AC is on its last leg. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A giant 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 nice indicator 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 can work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
