Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The expenses from constant repairs can really rack up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few things to consider to be certain 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC built today will be more 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 note instantly. If your house cannot stay at a steady and comfortable 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 observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its last round. 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 try harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A great signal that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be checking 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 big increase, know that the latest system will be able to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
