It can be a hard decision, determining if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to replace your entire system. The expenses from incessant repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a big venture. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few factors to think about to be sure that it’s time to stop repairing and start replacing:
- How often does your system break down?
If your air conditioner is between 10-15 years old, it’s probably time to start looking into a replacement system. An AC created today will be more 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 months.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should know how to notice immediately. If your house cannot remain a steady and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or up for a replacement.
- How old if your system?
If you’ve seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its ending leg. Look at your bill and compare 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.
- How high are your energy bills?
A nice signal that your air conditioner is on its last leg 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 upsurge, know that a new system will be able to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
