It can be a hard decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really add up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you decide on either choice, there are a few things to think about to be certain 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 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 hot summer months.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should be capable to detect instantly. If your house cannot stay at a steady and comfortable 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 seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its ending lap. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A giant increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a modern system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy.
- How high are your energy bills?
A good sign that your air conditioner is close to dying can be checking 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 a fresh system will be able to work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
