It can be a tough decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really accumulate, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few details to remember 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 highly 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 scorching summer temperatures.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should know how to note instantly. If your house cannot remain a fixed and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong 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 last lap. 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 current 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 close to dying can be inspecting your energy bills and noting they are getting higher and higher. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large upsurge, know that the latest system can work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
