It can be a hard decision, choosing if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The costs from continuous repairs can really add up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big venture. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few factors to consider to be confident 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 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 heated summer days.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should be able to note instantly. If your house cannot remain a fixed 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 seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its ending round. 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 work harder and that requires more energy.
- How high are your energy bills?
A great indicator that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be checking your energy bills and noting they are getting higher and higher. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big upsurge, know that the latest system will be able to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
