It can be a hard decision, choosing if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your full system. The costs from incessant repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you choose either route, there are a few factors to consider 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC built 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 heated summer days.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should be able to notice right away. If your house cannot stay at a fixed 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 seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its last round. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A high increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a modern system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy.
- How high are your energy bills?
A good signal that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be inspecting your energy bills and noting they are getting pricier and pricier. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large increase, know that a new system will be able to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
