Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The expenses from constant repairs can really rack up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big decision. So, before you choose either option, there are a few factors to remember to be certain 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 looking into a replacement system. An AC built today will be highly 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 heated summer temperatures.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to notice right away. If your house cannot hang around a steady and comfortable 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 seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its final 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 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 near its end can be checking your energy bills and observing they are getting pricier and pricier. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large increase, know that a new system can work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
