It can be a tough decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The costs from incessant repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big venture. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few things to consider to be confident 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 fret about being left to sweat it out during those hot summer days.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should be able to notice right away. If your house cannot stay at a steady and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or in line 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 last 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 current system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy.
- How high are your energy bills?
A nice sign that your air conditioner is near its end can be inspecting your energy bills and noting they are getting more and more expensive. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big escalation, know that the latest system can work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
