As a homeowner one of the toughest decisions you’ll have to make is deciding whether your system is in longing 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 consistently repairing a system that is in need of replacement. There are a few signs that it may be time to pause 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 looking into 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 fear about being left to sweat it out during those scorching summer months.
- Frequent Breakdowns
Occasional repairs may transpire, 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 aged system could be used to invest in a new, high-efficiency system.
- Your Energy Bills are Rising
If you’ve observed 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 large increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a new system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy.
