As a homeowner one of the toughest 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 huge investment, but so is the figure of routinely repairing a system that is in need of replacement. There are a few signs that it may be time to stop repairing and glance 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 created 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
Random repairs may occur, but if your air conditioner is breaking down many times a season, it’s probably time to begin looking into a replacement. The money you’re putting into your aged system could be used to invest in a modern, 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 ending round. Look at your bill and compare your energy usage this year to last year. A large 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.
- Your Home is Uncomfortable
You’ll notice this one immediately. If your system is having trouble 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.
