Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

It can be a hard decision, deciding if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your entire system. The expenses from incessant repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few factors to consider 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 more 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 days.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be capable to notice right away. If your house cannot stay at a steady and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect 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 large increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a current system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A nice signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be examining your energy bills and observing they are getting more and more expensive. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large upsurge, know that a fresh system can work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
