It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your entire system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large investment. So, before you choose either route, there are a few things to consider to be certain that it’s time to stop fixing 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC made today will be highly 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 know how to detect instantly. If your house cannot hang around a fixed and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or due 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 high 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 sign that your air conditioner is near its end can be checking your energy bills and observing they are getting higher and higher. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge escalation, know that a new system knows how to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
