Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a hard decision, deciding if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenses from constant repairs can really rack up, but buying 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 confident 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 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.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be able to detect immediately. If your house cannot stay at a steady and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or due 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 clue your AC is on its ending leg. 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.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A good indicator that your air conditioner is close to dying can be checking your energy bills and noticing they are getting higher and higher. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge upsurge, know that a new system will be able to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
