It can be a tough decision, determining if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your whole system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really rack up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a huge venture. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few things to remember to be confident 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 considering a replacement system. An AC created 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 temperatures.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should know how to notice instantly. If your house cannot stay at a fixed and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or due for a replacement.
- How old if your system?
If you’ve noticed 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 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 great indicator that your air conditioner is close to dying can be checking your energy bills and noticing they are getting pricier and pricier. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge upsurge, know that a new system knows how to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
