It can be a difficult decision, deciding if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to replace your entire system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really add up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a large venture. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few factors to remember 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC created today will be more energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to worry about being left to sweat it out during those heated summer temperatures.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should be able to note immediately. If your house cannot hang around a fixed and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or due 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 sign your AC is on its final lap. 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 current system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy.
- How high are your energy bills?
A great indicator that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be examining your energy bills and noting they are getting pricier and pricier. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large upsurge, know that a fresh system knows how to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
