Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a hard decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your whole system. The costs from constant repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a huge investment. So, before you decide on either choice, there are a few things to consider to be sure that it’s time to stop fixing 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 more 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 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 constant 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 clue your AC is on its last leg. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A giant increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a current 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 signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be examining your energy bills and noticing they are getting more and more expensive. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large upsurge, know that the latest system will be able to work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
