It can be a tough decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your whole system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big decision. So, before you pick either route, there are a few factors to think about 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 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 fret about being left to sweat it out during those heated summer months.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should be able to notice instantly. If your house cannot remain a fixed and comfortable 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 sign your AC is on its last lap. Look at your bill and analyze 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 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 checking your energy bills and noting they are getting pricier and pricier. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big upsurge, know that a fresh system knows how to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
