Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

It can be a difficult decision, choosing if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to replace your whole system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big venture. So, before you choose either option, there are a few things to remember 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 looking into 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 worry about being left to sweat it out during those hot summer temperatures.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to note immediately. If your house cannot remain a fixed and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper 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 last leg. Look at your bill and measure 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 great signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be inspecting your energy bills and noting they are getting more and more expensive. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big upsurge, know that a fresh system will be able to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
