Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really rack up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few factors to remember to be sure 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC created today will be more energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to worry about being left to sweat it out during those heated summer temperatures.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to note immediately. If your house cannot hang around a fixed 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 noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its final round. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A large increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a new system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy.

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