Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

It can be a tough decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your entire system. The expenses from constant repairs can really rack up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a huge venture. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few factors to think about 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 considering a replacement system. An AC created today will be extremely energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to fear about being left to sweat it out during those heated summer months.

  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 constant and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong 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 sign your AC is on its last leg. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A large 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 indicator that your air conditioner is near its end can be checking your energy bills and noting they are getting more and more expensive. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big escalation, know that the latest system knows how to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
