Signs You Need a New AC

It’s important to recognize when your system is failing so you can avoid unnecessary disruptions to your indoor comfort. The following are just some of the telltale signs that you should consider AC replacement:

  • Repair frequency: If you’re constantly scheduling AC repairs, your system isn’t reliable and should be replaced.
  • System age: If your air conditioner is 10 to 15 years old, it has lasted for its expected lifespan.
  • Reduced efficiency: If your energy bills have exponentially increased over time with no corresponding increase in use, your AC is no longer efficient.
  • Repair costs: If the cost to repair your air conditioner is 50% or more than the cost to replace it, a replacement may be the more cost-effective option.
