Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

It can be a hard decision, determining if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The expenses from constant repairs can really rack up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a huge venture. So, before you choose either option, there are a few factors to consider to be confident 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 created 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 days.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to notice right away. If your house cannot stay at a constant and comfy 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 flag your AC is on its ending leg. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A large 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 sign that your air conditioner is close to dying can be checking your energy bills and noticing they are getting more and more expensive. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge increase, know that a new system can work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
