It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenditures from incessant repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a huge venture. So, before you decide on either choice, there are a few details to think about 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 considering 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 fear about being left to sweat it out during those scorching summer months.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should know how to note immediately. If your house cannot stay at a constant and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or in line for a replacement.
- How old if your system?
If you’ve noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its final round. 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 current system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy.
- How high are your energy bills?
A great sign that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be inspecting your energy bills and noticing they are getting higher and higher. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge upsurge, know that a fresh system can work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
