Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

It can be a hard decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The expenditures from incessant repairs can really rack up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you choose either route, there are a few things to consider to be certain 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 contemplating 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 days.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to detect right away. If your house cannot remain a fixed and comfortable 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 observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its ending lap. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A high 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 good signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be examining your energy bills and noting they are getting more and more expensive. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge escalation, know that a new system can work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
