Figuring Out If Its 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 swap out your entire system. The costs from constant repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a big venture. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few details to think about to be sure 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 looking into a replacement system. An AC created 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 scorching summer months.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be able to detect right away. If your house cannot stay at a steady and comfortable 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 clue your AC is on its ending round. Look at your bill and analyze 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.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A good signal that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be inspecting your energy bills and observing they are getting higher and higher. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big escalation, know that a new system knows how to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
