As a homeowner one of the toughest 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 big investment, but so is the value of routinely repairing a system that is in need of replacement. There are a few signs that it may be time to layoff 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 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 months.
- Frequent Breakdowns
Unusual repairs may occur, 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 aged 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 sign your AC is on its last leg. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A large increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a modern system. As system’s age they have to try 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 may also mean that your system is the wrong size for your home.
