It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to swap out your entire system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really add up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a large decision. So, before you pick either route, there are a few things to think about 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 extremely 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 hot summer months.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should know how to detect right away. If your house cannot hang around a steady and cozy 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 observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its ending round. Look at your bill and measure 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 try harder and that requires more energy.
- How high are your energy bills?
A good sign that your air conditioner is near its end 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 escalation, know that the latest system will be able to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
