Repair or Replace Your HVAC System?

Sometimes repairing a system is not the most economical or efficient choice. If your old, outdated unit is no longer covered by a warranty, replacing your unit with a newer, more energy-efficient model can offer significant savings over hefty repair bills!

Here are the key signs that you should consider purchasing a new HVAC system:

Performance Declines
Are the rooms in your house no longer heating or cooling to the set temperature on your thermostat?  Older HVAC units will struggle to heat or cool your home consistently, and this is a sign that it should be replaced. 

Frequent Repairs are Needed
Frequent repairs are a surefire sign that your HVAC system is no longer fit for purpose. If the cost of repairs exceeds half the cost of replacement, you should consider investing in a new system.  

Energy Costs are Climbing
To compensate for their inefficiencies, an older system will burn more fuel to heat your home to the desired temperature. While your energy bills will fluctuate with the seasons, a consistent increase in energy costs is a sign that your HVAC unit needs servicing or replacement. 

As a general rule, air conditioners and heat pumps will last about 10 to 12 years before requiring replacement, and furnaces have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years. 

Got a repair estimate? Multiply the cost to repair your HVAC system by the age of your unit. If the total is over $5,000, it’s time to replace your Furnace, Air Conditioner, or Heat Pump. 

Note that replacing your HVAC unit may not only be a financially savvy move, but it can also improve the quality of air in your home. A more efficiently functioning system will work hard to eliminate pollutants in the air like dust, debris, dirt, and dander.
