It can be a hard decision, choosing if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to change your full system. The expenses from constant repairs can really rack up, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a big investment. So, before you pick either route, there are a few things to consider to be confident that it’s time to stop restoring 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 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 hot summer days.
- Does your home feel uncomfortable?
This is something that you should know how to detect right away. If your house cannot hang around a constant and cozy temperature, your air conditioner is either the incorrect size for your home, in need of repair, or up 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 clue your AC is on its final 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 current system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy.
- How high are your energy bills?
A nice sign that your air conditioner is on its last leg can be inspecting your energy bills and noting they are getting more and more expensive. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a big escalation, know that a new system knows how to work less hard for a boost in comfort and that it will conserve your home energy.
