When Should I replace My HVAC System?

When Should I replace My HVAC System?

Knowing whether to replace or repair your heating and cooling system is a difficult decision to make. But here are a few facts to consider to help with the decision.

1) How well your system is performing

Are you constantly adjusting your thermostat? Does your air feel damp? Are you hearing noises when your unit startup? All of these signs may signal and a new unit is required instead of just a repair.

2) Age of your system

You can expect repairs or replacements if your air conditioner and heat pump are 10 to 12 years old. While furnaces have a life span of around 15 to 20 years.

3) Your system size and capacity

You may save money by installing new windows, roofing, and insulation in your home. This could allow you to replace your current unit to a smaller size while still providing your home with complete comfort.

4) The repair cost

Consumer Reports recommends replacing a product when repairs exceed 50% of the cost of a new one. If this is the case Brinson and Sons are a great place to start to find the perfect new system.
