It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to replace your entire system. The expenses from incessant repairs can really rack up, but getting a new air conditioner system can also be a big decision. So, before you pick either choice, there are a few things to consider to be sure 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 looking into 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 days.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should be able to note right away. If your house cannot hang around a constant 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 observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its last round. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A large increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a modern system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy.
- How high are your energy bills?
A nice indicator that your air conditioner is close to dying can be inspecting your energy bills and observing they are getting more and more expensive. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large escalation, know that a fresh system can work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
