Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

It can be a tough decision, deciding if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenses from constant repairs can really rack up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a large investment. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few things to remember to be sure 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 made today will be more 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 temperatures.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be capable to detect immediately. If your house cannot hang around a constant and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper 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 clue your AC is on its final round. 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 task harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A good signal that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be examining your energy bills and noticing they are getting more and more expensive. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big upsurge, know that the latest system will be able to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
