Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

As a homeowner one of the hardest 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 consistently repairing a system that is in need of replacement. There are a few signs that it may be time to layoff repairing and look 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 looking into a replacement system. An AC created 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 temperatures.

  3. Frequent Breakdowns
  4. Unusual repairs may transpire, but if your air conditioner is breaking down multiple times a season, it’s probably time to start looking into a replacement. The money you’re putting into your tired system could be used to invest in a modern, high-efficiency system.

  5. Your Energy Bills are Rising
  6. If you’ve observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a flag your AC is on its last lap. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A high increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a current system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy.

  7. Your Home is Uncomfortable
  8. You’ll notice this problem instantly. If your system is having difficulty 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.
