Replacing your HVAC system is an investment. In fact, it’s one of the five largest expenses most homeowners incur. With that in mind, here are four reasons you should consider when thinking about an HVAC replacement:
If your HVAC system is approaching or beyond 20 years of age:
Older systems are more likely to fail, and you might get one thing fixed just to have another one break. Older systems may not be very efficient, as the older they get the less efficient are.
If your system needs an expensive repair:
Weigh your options to see if the life expectancy of your system justifies the cost of the repair. We can only guess what the life expectancy can be, it’s not known for sure, so the system could be repaired just to have it live for only a few more months.
If you’re unhappy with your system’s performance:
If your system is cycling on and off too often that’s hard on the equipment and could cause it to fail. If it gets too warm and then too cold during heating and cooling cycles, it’s not just uncomfortable, it’s costing you money. If you’re wanting something that will run more efficiently, replacement with the right system might be your best bet.
If your HVAC system has experienced a catastrophic failure:
Some failures cannot or should not be repaired. If the problem is that bad, replacement is a better option.
