It can be a tough decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your whole system. The expenses from constant repairs can really add up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a huge decision. So, before you choose either choice, 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 considering 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 fear 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 immediately. If your house cannot remain 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 observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its ending lap. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A high increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a new system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy.
- How high are your energy bills?
A nice indicator that your air conditioner is near its end can be inspecting your energy bills and noticing they are getting pricier and pricier. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge increase, know that the latest system will be able to work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
