Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

It can be a difficult decision, choosing if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your entire system. The expenses from constant repairs can really rack up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big venture. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few things to think about 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 looking into 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 fear about being left to sweat it out during those hot summer months.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be able to notice instantly. If your house cannot stay at a steady 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 noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its ending lap. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A high increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a current system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A great sign that your air conditioner is near its end can be examining your energy bills and noticing they are getting pricier and pricier. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large escalation, know that the latest system can work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
