Five Reasons You Should Replace Instead Of Repair

Replacing your HVAC system is a big decision. Below we have listed 5 reasons why your should replace rather than repair.

  • Save Money On Maintenance
  • Lower Your Energy Bill

  • Resale Value

Save Money On Maintenance

The average lifespan of an HVAC unit is about 15 years, considering it was well taken care of and serviced regularly. After 10 years, the unit becomes less reliable and requires more repairs. Although we love to visit our customers, we hope you don’t have to frequently call with new issues needing repair. If you find yourself putting more money into your older system, consider replacement to save you money in the long run.

Lower Your Energy Bill

Older units have to work harder to heat and cool your home, which uses more energy. Newer HVAC are strategically designed to be more energy efficient and save you money on your utility bill. When shopping for a new system, look for HVAC systems with the Energy Star label and a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER). The higher the rating, the more energy efficient it is.

Enhance Comfort

The best feeling in the summer months is coming inside when it is scorching hot outside. It is important that your unit can keep up with the extreme temperatures in both summer and winter. Newer units can improve air flow and regulation throughout your space without having to overwork the system. One sign you need a new unit is if some rooms are cooler or warmer than others. Your indoor temperature should be exactly what you set it as, and a newer system can help guarantee this!

Improve Air Quality

If you or someone else in your home struggles with seasonal allergies, a new system can dramatically improve indoor air quality. Today’s systems offer add-ons like whole home dehumidifiers, air purifiers and air filters, which can help remove any outdoor allergens.
