It can be a difficult decision, determining if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your entire system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really accumulate, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few things to remember 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 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 hot summer temperatures.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should be capable to detect instantly. If your house cannot remain a constant 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 flag your AC is on its last round. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A giant 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 signal that your air conditioner is near its end can be inspecting your energy bills and observing they are getting pricier and pricier. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge increase, know that a fresh system can work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
