HVAC systems, like other home systems, are all prone to occasional breakdowns. While repairs are almost always an option, there also comes a point where you have to make the decision between more repairs or installing a new HVAC system in your Bath, PA, home. Knowing how to make an informed decision between repairing and replacing your HVAC system can help you make the best decision.
HVAC system technology has come a long way over the last several years. With that fact in mind, you should consider the age of your current heating and cooling system when deciding whether you should repair or replace yours. According to Energy Star, if your HVAC system is more than 10 years old, it’s time to plan on installing a new one in your home.
Frequent HVAC System Repairs
Needing an occasional HVAC repair isn’t a warning sign that your system is nearing the end of its lifespan. However, if those repairs become more frequent, you should probably consider how much you’re spending on repair visits. If your annual repair costs are more than half the cost of a new system, you should opt for the new system installation.
High Energy Bills
Numbers never lie, and your HVAC system’s efficiency is no different. Now that we’re in the hottest part of the year, you probably find yourself using your cooling system more than you were a couple of months ago. If your utility bills are rising due to an inefficient system, a new HVAC system installation is an investment in the energy efficiency of your home.
