Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement

air conditioner replacement

It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to change your entire system. The expenditures from incessant repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few things to consider to be certain that it’s time to stop restoring and start replacing:

    1. How often does your system break down? If your air conditioner is between 10-15 years old, it’s probably time to start contemplating 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 worry about being left to sweat it out during those hot summer days.
    2. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should be able to detect right away. If your house cannot hang around 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.
    3. How old if your system? If you’ve seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its ending round. Look at your bill and analyze 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 work harder and that requires more energy.
    4. How high are your energy bills? A nice sign that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be examining your energy bills and noticing they are getting pricier and pricier. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big escalation, know that a new system can work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
