Top Questions to Ask Your Tech About HVAC Replacement
Even with the best maintenance, your HVAC system will need to be replaced at some point. If your HVAC system is in need of repair and is on the older side of a typical system’s life span, you are probably considering replacement. The best way to decide if your system needs repair or replacement is to speak with a licensed HVAC technician. Western Heating & Air Conditioning has a team of experienced professionals that are ready to assist you when you are thinking of replacing your system. Here are the top questions to ask your tech when you call our office.
How Long Does an HVAC System Last?
This question is tricky because it depends on both the brand of the HVAC system you have purchased along with how well you maintained it. Well-maintained systems can last upwards of 20-25 years. If you are starting to experience multiple HVAC system malfunctions, it may be time to replace your unit.
When Should I Choose Replacement Over Repair?
If your system’s repair is more than 50% of the cost of a new system, then you should strongly consider replacement rather than repair. Putting more money into an HVAC unit that will likely continue to fail is better spent on a brand new system that is also more energy-efficient.
Are There Other Considerations for Replacement?
Sometimes clients decide to replace their HVAC system based solely on eco-friendly or energy efficiency concerns. Brand new systems are much better at utilizing energy, and therefore, you pay less on your utility bills each month. By saving on your electricity bill, a new HVAC system practically pays for itself.
