Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

May 26, 2016

As a homeowner one of the difficult 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 big investment, but so is the value of continually repairing a system that is in need of replacement. There are a few signs that it may be time to layoff repairing and glance 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 considering a replacement system. An AC made today will be more energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to worry about being left to sweat it out during those scorching summer months.

  3. Frequent Breakdowns
  4. Occasional repairs may occur, but if your air conditioner is breaking down multiple times a season, it’s probably time to initiate looking into a replacement. The money you’re putting into your tired system could be used to invest in a new, 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 sign your AC is on its ending leg. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A giant increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a modern system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy.

  7. Your Home is Uncomfortable
  8. You’ll notice this issue right away. If your system is having difficulty maintaining a comfortable temperature, it could be a warning that your AC is in need of repair or replacement. It possibly also mean that your system is the improper size for your home.
