HVAC Replacement Services
The decision regarding whether or not to replace your HVAC system requires a good assessment of the overall heating and cooling capabilities of your home. For example, if your home is not well insulated, the latest and most expensive HVAC system might not heat or cool your home effectively, and your electricity costs might continue to skyrocket. An experienced heating and cooling service technician can help provide you with an informed assessment of your home, your existing equipment and usage - and then provide you options, so that you can decide whether or not to repair or replace.
Symptoms of a Failing HVAC System
Has your air conditioner started making an unusual noise? Does the pilot light keep going out on your furnace? Maybe your indoor temperatures vary greatly from room to room, cold air is blowing when set to heating mode, or your unit refuses to come on altogether. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, then it is time to have your HVAC system checked, repaired, or replaced.
Maybe your symptoms are less obvious – you sense a lack of airflow or you suspect your system is running too long to reach your desired temperature. These problems are harder to diagnose without the correct tools and expertise. Your capacitor could be beginning to fail, or you may have a small, but steady coolant leak that’s impossible to see from the outside.
Of course, any of these issues would need to be checked out and corrected. But how do you know when the problem warrants a system replacement, rather than a repair?
Should You Repair or Replace Your HVAC?
A good rule-of-thumb for knowing when to choose replacement over repair is the $5000 Rule: multiply the repair costs by the age of the unit, and if the total is over $5000, then it’s time to replace. For instance, if your repair costs would be $450 and the unit is 8 years old, $450 x 8 = $3600, so a repair would be recommended. Conversely, the same $450 repair on a 12-year-old unit would be $5400, so it would probably be time for a replacement.
The age of your HVAC system is really the deciding factor. If your system is more than 10 years old, Energy Star recommends upgrading to an energy-efficient unit, and most technicians will recommend an HVAC replacement if the units are more than 15 years old.
