As a homeowner one of the difficult decisions you’ll have to make is determining whether your system is in longing of an AC repair or if it’s time for a replacement system. A new AC is a huge investment, but so is the cost of consistently repairing a system that is in need of replacement. There are a few signs that it may be time to pause repairing and glance into replacing.
- The Age of Your System
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 fret about being left to sweat it out during those scorching summer months.
- Frequent Breakdowns
Occasional repairs may transpire, but if your air conditioner is breaking down many times a season, it’s probably time to start looking into a replacement. The money you’re putting into your old system could be used to invest in a new, high-efficiency system.
- Your Energy Bills are Rising
If you’ve observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its last lap. 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 current system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy.
- Your Home is Uncomfortable
You’ll notice this problem immediately. If your system is having trouble maintaining a comfortable temperature, it could be a sign that your AC is in need of repair or replacement. It possibly also mean that your system is the wrong size for your home.
