It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your entire system. The costs from continuous repairs can really rack up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a large investment. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few things to consider to be sure that it’s time to stop fixing 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 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 hot summer days.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should be able to note instantly. If your house cannot hang around a steady and comfy 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 clue your AC is on its final leg. 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 current system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy.
- How high are your energy bills?
A great sign that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be inspecting your energy bills and observing they are getting more and more expensive. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big escalation, know that a fresh system can work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
