It can be a tough decision, determining if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your entire system. The expenses from constant repairs can really rack up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a huge investment. So, before you decide on either choice, there are a few factors to consider 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 considering a replacement system. An AC made 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.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should know how to detect instantly. If your house cannot stay at a constant 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 observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its ending lap. Look at your bill and measure 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 try harder and that requires more energy.
- How high are your energy bills?
A good signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be examining your energy bills and observing they are getting pricier and pricier. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large escalation, know that a new system knows how to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
