Use These Tips To Decide: Repair Or Replace?

The heating and cooling equipment in your home is an important asset.   Do you know when it’s time to repair or replace your system? Below is a list of reasons why you should consider upgrading your system or get it repaired.

  • Air conditioning unit or heat pump is more than 10 years old. If you determine that it’s time to upgrade your equipment, make sure you look for a system that is Energy Star qualified. These efficient systems will save you a ton of money through energy savings and provide your home with excellent comfort levels.
  • Furnace/boiler is more than 15 years old. Energy Star furnaces are 15 percent more energy-efficient than traditional furnaces and Energy Star boilers are 5 percent more energy-efficient than traditional boilers.
  • Your system is always in need of repair work. Instead of having to pay for continual repair costs, you might as well upgrade to a new energy-efficient system that will function properly.
  • Utility bills keep getting more expensive. It is possible that your bills could be increasing due to inefficient equipment.
  • Uneven temperature levels. Inefficient equipment will cause uneven temperatures levels in your home. If this is the case in your home, it is time to repair or replace your equipment.
  • Nobody home during the day and no way to control the temperatures. With a programmable thermostat, you can manage your equipment efficiently and have your system operate only when it is necessary.
  • Your home has humidity problems. Inadequate equipment and poorly sealed ductwork can create uneven humidity levels in your home.
  • Your home has excessive dust. Poorly sealed ducts can even be the cause of excessive dust in your home.
  • Your system operates very loudly. If your system is operating too loudly, then it is probably time to repair or replace it.
