Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

It can be a tough decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your entire system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you choose either option, there are a few factors to consider to be confident 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 created 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 heated summer days.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to notice instantly. If your house cannot remain a steady and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or due for a replacement.

  5. How old if your system?
  6. If you’ve noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its last leg. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A large increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a modern system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A good signal that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be inspecting your energy bills and noticing they are getting higher and higher. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large escalation, know that a new system can work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
