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 needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your whole system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a big venture. So, before you choose either route, there are a few factors to remember to be confident that it’s time to stop repairing 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 created today will be highly 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 heated summer temperatures.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be capable to note instantly. If your house cannot remain a steady and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or in line for a replacement.

  5. How old if your system?
  6. If you’ve seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its ending round. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A giant 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 sign that your air conditioner is near its end 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 huge upsurge, know that a new system can work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
