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 costs from incessant repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few things to remember to be confident 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 looking into a replacement system. An AC made 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 hot summer temperatures.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to note immediately. If your house cannot remain a fixed and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or due for a replacement.

  5. How old if your system?
  6. If you’ve noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its ending round. 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 good signal that your air conditioner is near its end can be examining your energy bills and noting they are getting higher and higher. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge upsurge, know that a fresh system knows how to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
