Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to change your whole system. The expenditures from incessant repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a huge venture. So, before you choose either route, 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 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 fret 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 capable to notice instantly. If your house cannot remain a steady and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or up 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 clue your AC is on its last lap. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A giant increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a new system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A good sign that your air conditioner is close to dying can be checking your energy bills and observing they are getting higher and higher. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big escalation, know that the latest system will be able to work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
