It can be a hard decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to swap out your full system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really add up, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a huge investment. So, before you decide on either option, there are a few things to think about 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 considering a replacement system. An AC made 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 hot summer months.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should be capable to note right away. If your house cannot stay at a constant and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong 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 sign your AC is on its last leg. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A high 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 good signal that your air conditioner is close to dying can be checking your energy bills and observing they are getting higher and higher. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge increase, know that a new system can work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
