Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

It can be a hard decision, determining if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The costs from constant repairs can really rack up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a big decision. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few things 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 looking into a replacement system. An AC built 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 notice immediately. If your house cannot hang around a steady and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong 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 analyze 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 task harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A good signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be checking your energy bills and observing they are getting more and more expensive. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge increase, know that a new system knows how to work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
