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

Installation
Repair
Service

It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The expenses from constant repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a huge decision. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few details 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 considering 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 scorching summer temperatures.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be able to notice instantly. If your house cannot stay at a steady and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or up 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 final lap. 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 new system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A great indicator that your air conditioner is near its end can be examining 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 big escalation, know that a fresh system knows how to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
