It can be a tough decision, determining if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to change your whole system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really add up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you choose either route, there are a few factors to remember to be certain 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 contemplating a replacement system. An AC built today will be highly 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 temperatures.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should be able to notice instantly. If your house cannot hang around a constant and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or up 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 ending round. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A giant 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 nice signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be examining your energy bills and noticing they are getting pricier and pricier. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big upsurge, know that a new system will be able to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
