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 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 pause repairing and peek into replacing.
- The Age of Your System
If your air conditioner is between 10-15 years old, it’s probably time to start considering a replacement system. An AC created today will be highly energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to fear about being left to sweat it out during those scorching summer days.
- Frequent Breakdowns
Random repairs may happen, 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 modern, 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 flag your AC is on its ending lap. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A high 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 one immediately. 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 could also mean that your system is the improper size for your home.
