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 whole system. The expenditures from incessant repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you decide on either choice, there are a few details to remember 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 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 scorching summer temperatures.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should know how to detect instantly. If your house cannot hang around a steady and comfortable 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 observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its final leg. Look at your bill and measure 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 try harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A great signal that your air conditioner is near its end can be checking 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 huge increase, know that the latest system will be able to work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
