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 change your entire system. The expenditures from incessant repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a huge venture. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few details 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 considering a replacement system. An AC created today will be extremely 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 scorching summer months.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be able to detect instantly. If your house cannot stay at a constant and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or in line 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 sign your AC is on its ending leg. 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 new 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 sign that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be inspecting your energy bills and noticing they are getting higher and higher. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large upsurge, know that a fresh system will be able to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
