It can be a hard decision, choosing if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to change your whole system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a huge decision. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few factors to think about to be certain that it’s time to stop repairing 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 built today will be more 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 months.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should know how to note immediately. If your house cannot stay at a fixed and comfy 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 noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its last round. Look at your bill and analyze 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 try harder and that requires more energy.
- How high are your energy bills?
A great indicator that your air conditioner is near its end can be checking your energy bills and noticing they are getting pricier and pricier. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a huge escalation, know that a new system can work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
