It can be a tough decision, choosing if your air conditioner requires repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The expenditures from continuous repairs can really accumulate, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you choose either choice, there are a few things to consider to be sure 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 made 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 days.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should know how to notice immediately. If your house cannot stay at a fixed and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or due for a replacement.
- How old if your system?
If you’ve noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its last round. 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 new system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy.
- How high are your energy bills?
A nice signal that your air conditioner is near its end can be examining your energy bills and observing they are getting pricier and pricier. Compare your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large upsurge, know that a new system knows how to work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will save your home energy.
