Sooner or later, your HVAC system will run into issues. The question is, can you get by with A/C or furnace repairs, or will you be better off with a full replacement of your HVAC system? Let’s look at several questions you’ll need to consider to help you and your HVAC contractors reach the best decision for your particular scenario.

How Old Is Your System?

If your system is relatively new, there’s a good chance that all you need is a level of A/C or furnace service with generally minor repairs. However, if your system is more than ten years old, there’s a chance that it’s approaching the end of its life expectancy. Doing minor repairs may be fine, but extensive repairs are probably not worth it for you financially, especially if something else is bound to malfunction within a year and you’ll end up replacing the whole system anyway. If you’re not sure how long your system is expected to last, contact your local HVAC contractors and ask them. Have your unit’s brand and model number handy.

If Repaired, How Many Years Would Your System Have Left?

Let’s say you do opt for repairs, and your system is back to working fine for you and your household. How long will this last? If your heating and cooling equipment is fairly new, it’s a good chance the repairs will keep your system going strong for a long time. But if your system is old, and you’ve just completed a considerable number of repairs, how much longer will these fixes keep your HVAC equipment going? If less than a year, then a new installation at this time is likely the better choice.

Are You Ready To Upgrade To A More Efficient System?

Are you tired of paying costly utility bills every month? If so, you might be ready to upgrade to a new, more energy efficient system. A high-efficiency air conditioner or furnace will reduce your consumption of electricity, lowering your energy bills for a welcome financial boost for you!

What Are The Costs Associated With Repairing Or Replacing?

Of course, this is an important consideration, since your budget may not allow for a full replacement at this time. However, if your HVAC contractors urge you to do a full replacement rather than a series of repairs, know that financing is available to help with your new purchase.
