It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to change your entire system. The expenditures from constant repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big venture. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few things to remember to be certain that it’s time to stop repairing and start replacing:
- How often does your system break down?
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 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 hot summer temperatures.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should be capable to note immediately. If your house cannot hang around a constant and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or up for a replacement.
- How old if your system?
If you’ve observed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its last lap. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A large 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.
- How high are your energy bills?
A nice signal that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be inspecting your energy bills and noticing they are getting more and more expensive. Contrast your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large upsurge, know that the latest system can work less hard for a rise in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
