Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to change your whole system. The costs from incessant repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few things to think about to be confident 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 looking into a replacement system. An AC made today will be highly energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to fear about being left to sweat it out during those hot summer months.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be capable to note instantly. If your house cannot hang around a fixed and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or in line 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 flag your AC is on its last round. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A giant increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a modern system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A good signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be examining your energy bills and observing they are getting more and more expensive. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge escalation, know that a new system will be able to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
