Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

It can be a hard decision, choosing if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your entire system. The expenses from incessant repairs can really add up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a large investment. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few factors to remember to be confident that it’s time to stop repairing 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 made today will be extremely 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 heated summer temperatures.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be able to note immediately. If your house cannot hang around a steady and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or in line for a replacement.

  5. How old if your system?
  6. If you’ve seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its ending lap. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A giant 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 close to dying can be checking your energy bills and noting they are getting higher and higher. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge escalation, know that a new system will be able to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
