HVAC systems are great for your home comfort needs, but when do you need a new one? Here is a general guide for when you should repair or replace your HVAC unit.
First, you should have your HVAC unit maintained frequently. With spring around the corner, now is a good time to have maintenance performed on your air conditioning unit, which will save you money. Not only does regular maintenance save you money by helping your system perform at optimal efficiency, it ensures your HVAC unit is working properly.
If you come across tears, breaks, or anything else that appears out of the ordinary during your spring cleaning, it’s always smart to call a season before (spring for air conditioning, fall for heating) to have your repairs done in order to be prepared for when you need your HVAC unit.
If the cost of repairs plus labor is ½ the cost of replacement, it may be in your best interest to replace your HVAC unit instead of getting repairs done. Keep in mind, if your HVAC unit is still performing well but is old, you shouldn’t feel required to replace your unit. However, one reason you may want to consider upgrading it may be to increase efficiency–ductless HVAC systems can save you money while also being highly energy efficient. Also, home automation features options such as programmable thermostats allow you to control your heating and cooling with your smart phone. Another reason to upgrade is if your current HVAC unit is noisy, which can indicate that your system is undersized for your home’s requirements. Suggesting: A noisy HVAC unit may indicate that your system is undersized for your home’s requirements. This may be another reason to upgrade.
