Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 As a homeowner one of the toughest decisions you’ll have to make is concluding 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 cost of continually repairing a system that is in need of replacement. There are a few signs that it may be time to pause repairing and glance into replacing. The Age of Your System If your air conditioner is between 10-15 years old, it’s probably time to start contemplating a replacement system. An AC made 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 scorching summer months. Frequent Breakdowns Random repairs may occur, 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 current, high-efficiency system. Your Energy Bills are Rising If you’ve seen your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its ending lap. 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 new system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy. Your Home is Uncomfortable You’ll notice this problem immediately.
