It can be a tough decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to swap out your entire system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big decision. So, before you decide on either choice, there are a few details to consider to be confident 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 more 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 scorching summer days.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should be capable to note immediately. If your house cannot stay at a steady 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 seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its last leg. 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 task harder and that requires more energy.
- How high are your energy bills?
A nice indicator that your air conditioner is near its end can be examining your energy bills and observing they are getting more and more expensive. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large escalation, know that a fresh system will be able to work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
