Should you repair or replace your heating and cooling system? It’s a valid question and one that comes up more often than you think. The answer really depends on the age of your current HVAC system, the health of your system and which option would benefit you, the customer, the most.
The life expectancy of your HVAC system varies from unit to unit and largely depends on how well it has been maintained. Replacing your filter regularly and routine maintenance can extend the life of your heating and cooling system, but the added stress of everyday use will still take its toll over time. Even with repairs an aged system will become less efficient and may result in higher energy costs.
Technology is improving all the time, becoming more and more efficient. Older systems lack the improved energy savings of newer more efficient systems.
Wear and tear is a common factor with any appliance that is used daily, especially those with moving parts. Your heating and cooling system is no different and depending on the type of repair, costs can exceed the price to replace it. Small, less expensive, repairs might extend the life of your system but may not improve the efficiency of an aging HVAC system. A newer more efficient heating and cooling system may provide a better return on investment as opposed to repairing the old one.
Should I repair my heating and cooling system or replace it? It’s a big decision and not one that should be taken lightly; your decision will affect your energy costs and comfort for years to come.
