Should I Repair or Replace My Existing Heating and Cooling System?

heating system replacement Vancouver WAA question that most homeowners will have to ask at some point in the life of their home is “should I repair or replace my heating/cooling system?”  The answer isn’t always simple, but there are some things that can help you decide what to do.  Below are some things to consider when deciding to replace or repair a heating and cooling system:

  • The age of your heating or cooling system is the first factor to consider. If your current system is ten years old or more, it may still run well, but become less efficient.  It could become economically obsolete long before you know it needs to be replaced. It’s likely that a new unit could end up paying for itself within a few years because of the money you save on your monthly electric bills.
  • Another important reason to replace your HVAC equipment is that older units are more likely to continue to have problems in the future.
  • The most important factor to consider is if your existing heating and cooling system keeps you and your family comfortable during all months of the year.

Our experienced HVAC technicians can provide an in-home consultation about the pro’s and con’s of repairing or replacing your homes existing heating and cooling system.  Contact our heating and cooling company today to learn more about today’s high efficient HVAC systems and if it is time to update your home’s system.  Our company can provide more information about HVAC financing options as well!
