Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to swap out your whole system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a huge investment. So, before you choose either route, there are a few factors to remember to be certain 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 considering a replacement system. An AC made today will be highly energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to fret 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 note instantly. If your house cannot hang around a steady and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong 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 flag your AC is on its final round. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A giant increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a modern 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 near its end can be inspecting your energy bills and observing they are getting more and more expensive. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big increase, know that a fresh system knows how to work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
