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

Installation
Repair
Service

It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The costs from constant repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large investment. So, before you pick either route, there are a few details to consider to be certain 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC made today will be extremely 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 scorching summer days.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to note right away. If your house cannot hang around a constant and comfy 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 final leg. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A high increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a current system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A great sign that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be checking your energy bills and noting they are getting higher and higher. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big upsurge, know that a fresh system knows how to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
