The weather is heating up and Durable Service realizes you want to make sure you keep cool all summer long. So, if your air conditioner isn’t running well, how do you know whether to make the investment toward repairs or purchasing a new system?

Here are some questions you should consider when determining if you need a new air conditioner:

  • How old is my system?
    If your system is 10 to 15 years old, you may choose to contemplate investing in a replacement air conditioner. The technology and efficiencies in HVAC systems have continued to evolve in recent years and there some extra features that favor your home and wallet.
  • How often are the breakdowns occurring?
    If your repairs have been infrequent, it may not make sense to take the leap to a new system. However, if your system is requiring repairs on a more frequent basis, you are putting a lot of funds into fixing a system that may not be working properly.
  • Have you noticed an increase in your energy usage?
    It’s a good idea to keep an eye on your monthly energy usage. And since temperatures do vary throughout the year, it’s a good idea to do once a year comparisons to get a more definite picture of how your energy usage has changed. If your system is running harder to achieve the same results, it will result in higher energy expenditure.
