HVAC Replacement and Installation
HVAC Replacement and Installation Is your HVAC system old or broken? Does it give you more problems than it’s worth? If you’ve called an HVAC contractor more often than you’ve called your friends lately, there’s a serious problem. It may be time to stop repairing your HVAC system and just replace the entire system or parts of the system. Rather than hoping this new repair will last longer than it did last time, you can save yourself a lot of time and worry when you decide to replace your HVAC system. Sometimes life just happens and your HVAC system needs to be replaced. It happens to everyone eventually, especially since an HVAC system typically only lasts about 15 to 20 years. Some homeowners, however, avoid replacing the system because of the cost or because they’re not sure if their system is really on its last legs or is just acting up for a while. Lots of homeowners pay for repair after repair, thinking that it’s cheaper and just as effective as getting a new system. If you’re repairing your system often, then this isn’t true. Here’s when it’s time to replace your system rather than just repairing it:
If your system is more than 20 years old
If the cost of a repair, or many repairs over a short amount of time, is more than 50% of the cost of a new system
If your system is no longer as efficient as it used to be/If your energy bills are higher than normal
If you’re making repairs to your system every month or more frequently
If any of these are true for you and your system, it’s time to get a replacement. Here’s a little more information about each of these points. Old system: If your HVAC system is more than 20 years old, then it isn’t likely to last much longer. If your system breaks after hitting this milestone, it probably won’t be worth it to make any repairs. Instead, you should have the entire system replaced. You’ll be surprised at the difference a new system will make to your home’s temperature, air quality, performance, and overall health. If you find yourself repairing an old system, you’ll likely end up spending more money on repairs than the system is worth. A lot of homeowners ignore the 20-year mark and believe that their system will last forever, but this isn’t true. You need to get a new system if you want to stop dealing with serious problems and costly repairs. Repair costs: If you’re paying over 50% of the cost of a new system just to repair your current HVAC system (whether it’s one repair or a few repairs in a short amount of time), then you’re doing something wrong. You should never spend this much money on an old HVAC system, and should seriously consider why you’re spending this much money on a relatively new system. It will always be better financially, in the long run, to tighten your belts a bit now and pay for a new system rather than spend the time and money it takes to repeatedly fight with an old system that won’t last much longer anyway. Inefficient system/High energy bills: One way to tell that your HVAC system is no longer very efficient is if your energy bills suddenly spike or are higher than expected. This may indicate that your HVAC system is losing energy somewhere, whether through a leak in the ducts or a problem with the system itself. Either way, your system is no longer very efficient and will continue to cost you extra money in energy bills until you either pay to fix the problem, which can be costly or install a new system. While installing a new system will obviously be more expensive now, it will pay off in the long run through lower energy bills, running efficiently, and helping the environment. Frequent repairs: If your HVAC system needs to be repaired every month or more frequently than that, it’s time to get a replacement. The cost of these repairs will add up and you’ll eventually spend more money than you would have if you’d just gotten a new system, to begin with. Sometimes it can be hard to judge whether getting a new system is a good idea if your old system has just started acting up. If you’ve had lots of problems recently, though, you should talk to your HVAC contractor and see if they recommend a new system. Chances are that your old system will continue to give you problems and need costly repairs, so getting a new system is probably a good idea. Has any of this happened to you?
