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 demands repair or if it’s time to swap out your whole system. The expenses from incessant repairs can really accumulate, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a big decision. So, before you decide on either choice, there are a few factors to consider to be sure 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 looking into a replacement system. An AC built today will be more energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to fear 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 be capable to notice instantly. If your house cannot remain a steady and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or up 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 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 great signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be inspecting your energy bills and noting they are getting pricier and pricier. Contrast 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 a boost in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
