As a homeowner one of the difficult 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 cost 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 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 scorching summer days.
- Frequent Breakdowns
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 old system could be used to invest in a new, high-efficiency system.
- Your Energy Bills are Rising
If you’ve seen 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 compare 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 work harder and that requires more energy.
- Your Home is Uncomfortable
You’ll notice this issue right away. 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 could also mean that your system is the wrong size for your home.
