As a homeowner one of the toughest decisions you’ll have to make is concluding 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 figure of continually repairing a system that is in need of replacement. There are a few signs that it may be time to pause 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 considering 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 fear 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 numerous times a season, it’s probably time to initiate 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 noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a sign your AC is on its last lap. Look at your bill and measure your energy usage this year to last year. A high increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a new system. As system’s age they have to task harder and that requires more energy.
