Should you repair or replace your heating & cooling system?

Your heating and cooling system is put to the test every year when the cold weather hits. Then when the summer starts in, it works hard to keep your home cool and comfortable. If your heating and cooling system is older and you’re wondering if you should repair or fully replace it, here are some tips.

Tip #1: Don’t wait for your heating and cooling system to break down.
Whether it happens in the next few weeks or when the hot days of summer are upon us, your outdated HVAC system isn’t built to last forever. Once it breaks down, you’ll be left in a lurch, trying to find help to get it repaired or replaced and this can be stressful. A broken down system could also be a safety hazard. Furthermore, when your system is broken and you are forced to replace it, you may not have time to research your options and find the best system within your budget. This can add another level of frustration or stress to the process.

Tip #2: Add up the cost of repairs.
Have you had your system repaired often in the last few months or years? It’s likely that the cost of those repairs is adding up quickly and over time, you’ll need to weigh if it’s worth the cost of continual repairs versus biting the bullet and just replacing the whole system.

Tip #3: Start researching.
If your system is 15 years old or more, it’s likely that a full replacement is needed. If you replace your unit before it breaks down, you’ll have time to do your research and read up on the various heating systems that are available right now. We are proud to carry a variety of affordable systems that will keep you comfortable in the upcoming months and years.

Not sure which one is right for your home? We’re happy to come take a look at your home or office and assess what system would work best for the space and most importantly, your budget guidelines. Our experienced team is well-versed in a variety of heating and cooling systems. This year, there are a variety of tax credits, utility incentives and manufactured rebates that can help offset the cost.  In addition, we have a wide range of financing options available if you need it. With the right unit in place, you’ll be ready for a more comfortable, more enjoyable seasons in the years ahead.

    My brother recently moved into an older home. He has noticed that areas of the home aren’t receiving air from the cooling system, so he’s looking at his options. I didn’t realize how important it is to weight the cost of repairs over time and compare it to the cost of a new system. I’ll be sure to share this info with my brother.
