Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement

As a homeowner one of the difficult decisions you’ll have to make is concluding whether your system is in demand of an AC repair or if it’s time for a replacement system. A new AC is a large investment, but so is the figure of continually repairing a system that is in need of replacement. There are a few signs that it may be time to pause repairing and look into replacing.

  1. The Age of Your System
  2. 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 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 months.

  3. Frequent Breakdowns
  4. Unusual repairs may happen, but if your air conditioner is breaking down many times a season, it’s probably time to initiate looking into a replacement. The money you’re putting into your aged system could be used to invest in a current, high-efficiency system.

  5. Your Energy Bills are Rising
  6. If you’ve noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its ending lap. 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 new system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy.

  7. Your Home is Uncomfortable
  8. You’ll notice this one instantly. If your system is having difficulty maintaining a comfortable temperature, it could be a sign that your AC is in need of repair or replacement. It may also mean that your system is the incorrect size for your home.
