Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your whole system. The expenses from incessant repairs can really rack up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large investment. So, before you choose either option, there are a few details to remember to be certain 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 made today will be highly 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 capable to notice instantly. If your house cannot stay at a constant and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or due 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 sign your AC is on its last leg. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A high increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a new system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A great indicator that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be checking your energy bills and noting they are getting higher and higher. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge escalation, know that a new system will be able to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
