Why Should I Purchase a New Heating and Air Conditioning System?

Why one of the biggest questions when it comes to heating and air conditioning systems is whether you should repair or replace.

We rely so much on our heating and air conditioning systems, when they’re not working up to par it can be surprising and oh so disappointing. And then the question of whether to spend the money on repairs or invest in a replacement comes up. What should you do? There are some tried-and-true ways to tell when it’s time to purchase a new HVAC system.

Age Is More Than a Number

A heating and cooling system has a certain life expectancy. A good rule of thumb is if your heat pump or air conditioner is more than 10 years old or if your furnace is more than 15 years old, it’s time to start considering replacement. Even if it seems to be running fine, you won’t be getting the energy efficiency that your system once offered nor will you be getting the upgraded technology and efficiency that comes with new units.

Inconsistent Temperatures

If you can feel a difference in temperature or you can feel fluctuations within your home, it’s a sign that your heating and cooling system are no longer able to keep up with demand. Daily wear and tear can lead to inadequate temperature control. Even with regular repairs this can’t always be corrected. That’s when it’s time for an upgrade.

Costly Repairs. And More Repairs

Have you spent money on HVAC repairs lately? More than once? If you’ve had to pay for costly repairs more than once in the last year or so, it might be worth your while to consider what a new system could do for you. Not only will you save money on repairs, but you will also save money on your heating and cooling bills over time.

Investing in a new HVAC system for your home is a big decision. For advice and guidance on when it’s the right time to purchase a new heating and air conditioning system, contact the team at All City Heat and Air.

The technician let me know what needed to be done, and we agreed what the cost would be. When he finished the work, he phoned back and told me he was able to use a less expensive freon and was able to adjust the bill. Very pleased with the work and will use them at another home I own.
