HVAC Repair vs. Replacement: Things to Consider
If your HVAC system is on the fritz (again), you may be wondering whether it’s a better decision to repair your HVAC system or replace it altogether. When you’re on the fence about HVAC repair vs. replacement, our technicians can conduct an assessment and make a recommendation. In the meantime, here are a few things to consider regarding HVAC repair vs. replacement—
Signs It’s Time to Replace Your HVAC System
In many cases, repairing your HVAC system is a great idea. Repairs are often less expensive and, most importantly, they work! What’s more, needing to repair an HVAC system a few times over the years is normal; like all machines, HVAC systems experience wear and tear and parts may need some TLC. With that in mind, there are some cases where replacing your HVAC system might make more sense than repairing it. This may be true if:
- Your HVAC system is really old. If your HVAC system is more than 15-20 years old, then repairing it likely isn’t worth it. Your money will probably be better spent on a new, energy-efficient system.
- You’ve already performed multiple repairs. If you’ve performed your system time and time again and you can’t believe that you’re having an issue again, it might be time for replacement.
- You’ve dumped a lot of money into your current HVAC system. Just like the above point, if you’ve already put a lot of money into your HVAC system when it comes to repairs, you may want to switch tactics and start putting money into a new system. Over time, you could save money by doing this.
- Repairs or not, your system isn’t efficient. If your system isn’t efficient and is costing you a lot of money on your heating and cooling bills each month, then you should think about whether continually repairing an inefficient system makes sense. By upgrading to an energy-efficient system, you may be able to cut down on your energy bills significantly.
- A professional recommends replacement. Finally, if a professional recommends that you replace your system, you should probably take the recommendation to heart.
