Repair or Replace?

October 26th, 2015

As the cool weather rolls in and we use our air conditioners less frequently, it’s a good time to consider repairs or replacement on your HVAC system. Your air conditioner has been working hard all summer which puts strain on your HVAC system. If your system is no longer functioning as well as it once did, it might be time to consider repairing or replacing the unit. Here are some tips to help you decide if a repair or replacement is necessary for you.

 

When You Should Repair

If your system is less than eight years old, you might want to look into repair options before you think about completely replacing it. Ask a professional repair team to come out and look at your unit to decide if it needs a small or large repair and how much it will cost. If the repair comes with a large price tag, it might be a better idea to update your entire HVAC system.

 

When You Should Replace

A new HVAC system can greatly benefit your home. With more efficient heating and cooling options, installing a new system is a great way to save money on energy costs. If you have had to repair your current HVAC system a few times, you should think about replacing it instead of trying to repair it again. If the unit is more than eight years old, a new system will probably give you better control over the interior temperatures. You should also think about replacing the unit if it does not heat or cool as it once did or you notice excessive dust inside the house. If you are gone for long periods of the day, a new system with a programmable thermostat can help you get optimal energy efficiency.
