As a homeowner one of the toughest decisions you’ll have to make is deciding whether your system is in need 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 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 built today will be highly 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.
- Frequent Breakdowns
Unusual repairs may occur, 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 new, 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 flag your AC is on its final round. Look at your bill and measure 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 task harder and that requires more energy.
- Your Home is Uncomfortable
You’ll notice this issue instantly. If your system is having trouble 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 incorrect size for your home.
