As a homeowner one of the hardest decisions you’ll have to make is determining whether your system is in need of an AC repair or if it’s time for a replacement system. A new AC is a large investment, but so is the figure of continually repairing a system that is in need of replacement. There are a few signs that it may be time to stop repairing and look into replacing.
- The Age of Your System
If your air conditioner is between 10-15 years old, it’s probably time to start considering a replacement system. An AC built today will be highly 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 heated summer temperatures.
- Frequent Breakdowns
Occasional 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 current, high-efficiency system.
- Your Energy Bills are Rising
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 final lap. Look at your bill and analyze 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 task harder and that requires more energy.
- Your Home is Uncomfortable
You’ll notice this one immediately. If your system is having problems maintaining a comfortable temperature, it could be a sign that your AC is in need of repair or replacement. It possibly also mean that your system is the wrong size for your home.
