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

Installation
Repair
Service

It can be a hard decision, choosing if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenditures from incessant repairs can really accumulate, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a huge decision. So, before you choose either option, there are a few details to consider to be sure that it’s time to stop restoring 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 considering a replacement system. An AC built 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 scorching summer days.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be capable to detect instantly. If your house cannot hang around a fixed 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 seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its ending 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 new system. As system’s age they have to task 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 checking your energy bills and noticing they are getting pricier and pricier. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large escalation, know that the latest system can work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
