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 replace your entire system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big decision. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few things to think about to be confident that it’s time to stop restoring 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 built 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 know how to notice instantly. If your house cannot remain a fixed and comfortable 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 sign your AC is on its last leg. 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 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 nice indicator that your air conditioner is close to dying can be examining your energy bills and observing they are getting pricier and pricier. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large upsurge, know that a fresh system will be able to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
