Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

As a homeowner one of the toughest decisions you’ll have to make is determining 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 value of consistently repairing a system that is in need of replacement. There are a few signs that it may be time to stop repairing and peek 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 considering a replacement system. An AC made 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 heated summer months.

  3. Frequent Breakdowns
  4. Occasional repairs may occur, but if your air conditioner is breaking down numerous 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 new, high-efficiency system.

  5. Your Energy Bills are Rising
  6. If you’ve seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its ending leg. 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 modern 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 problem right away. If your system is having trouble maintaining a comfortable temperature, it could be a sign that your AC is in need of repair or replacement. It could also mean that your system is the wrong size for your home.
