Upgrade your HVAC system to a new, high-efficiency model. Our technicians will recommend the best system for your needs and install it properly. If you’re wondering whether it’s time to replace your HVAC systems, ask yourself the following questions:
1. How old is my system?
In general, a well-maintained air-conditioning system will last about 10-15 years. If your system needs major heating or air-conditioning repairs and it’s more than 10 years old, it is often more cost-effective to replace it.
2. What is the efficiency rating of my system?
An air conditioner with a low SEER rating is expensive to operate. Newly manufactured air conditioners must have a SEER rating of at least 14. If your system’s SEER rating is less than 14, you can cut back on your energy costs by installing a newer unit.
3. How much will repairs costs?
When you’re facing an expensive repair, it’s important to weigh the costs of air-conditioning repairs against the costs of a new unit. If the cost of the repair would cover a large part of a new system, it probably makes more financial sense to replace it.
4. How often is my system breaking down?
When your system has regular problems, the repair costs can really add up. Save yourself the headaches and the money by investing in a new unit.
5. What type of refrigerant does my system use?
R-22 is one of the most common refrigerants used in air-conditioning units, but it is in the process of being phased out because it is an HCFC -- a gas that depletes of the ozone layer. As of January 1st, 2020, R-22 will be illegal to manufacture or import into the United States. If your air conditioner uses R-22, you’ll have to replace it in order to switch over to the new refrigerant (R410A). Contact us to find out more about how the R-22 phase-out affects our heating and cooling services.
6. Are you comfortable in your home?
Is your HVAC system keeping your home at a comfortable temperature? If not, your system could be aging or incorrectly sized. A new unit will keep your home at the perfect temperature year-round.
