It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your entire system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large investment. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few details to remember to be sure 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 made 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 scorching summer temperatures.
Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should be capable to note right away. If your house cannot stay at a fixed and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong 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 ending lap. Look at your bill and measure 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 great signal that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be checking your energy bills and noting they are getting more and more expensive. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large escalation, know that the latest system can work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
