Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

As a homeowner one of the difficult 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 big investment, but so is the cost of continually repairing a system that is in need of replacement. There are a few signs that it may be time to layoff repairing and glance 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 heated summer months.

  3. Frequent Breakdowns
  4. Unusual repairs may happen, but if your air conditioner is breaking down multiple times a season, it’s probably time to begin looking into a replacement. The money you’re putting into your aged system could be used to invest in a modern, 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 final round. Look at your bill and analyze 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 issue immediately. If your system is having problems maintaining a comfortable temperature, it could be a warning that your AC is in need of repair or replacement. It possibly also mean that your system is the improper size for your home.
