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 huge investment, but so is the value of consistently repairing a system that is in need of replacement. There are a few signs that it may be time to pause 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 contemplating 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 heated summer months.
- Frequent Breakdowns
Unusual repairs may transpire, but if your air conditioner is breaking down multiple times a season, it’s probably time to begin 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 clue your AC is on its final leg. Look at your bill and measure 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 task harder and that requires more energy.
- Your Home is Uncomfortable
You’ll notice this problem instantly. If your system is having difficulty maintaining a comfortable temperature, it could be a hint that your AC is in need of repair or replacement. It possibly also mean that your system is the wrong size for your home.
