It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really add up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few factors to remember to be certain that it’s time to stop restoring 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 extremely 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 heated summer temperatures.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should know how to detect immediately. If your house cannot stay at a fixed and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or due 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 high increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a modern system. As system’s age they have to try 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 examining your energy bills and noticing they are getting higher and higher. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large increase, know that a fresh system knows how to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
