Should I Repair Or Replace My System

Should I Repair Or Replace My System

As a homeowner, it can be challenging to determine whether it’s time to repair or replace your HVAC system. An HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system is a significant investment, and it’s essential to make an informed decision before you commit to any repairs or replacements. FH Furr wanted to share some factors to consider when deciding whether to repair or replace your HVAC system this summer:

  1. Age of the HVAC System – The age of your HVAC system is one of the most critical factors to consider. The average lifespan of an HVAC system is 10-15 years. If your system is approaching or exceeding that age range, it may be time to replace it. While repairs can keep your system running, they may not be worth the investment in an older system, as new technologies offer improved efficiency and savings.
  2. Repair Costs – When your HVAC system breaks down, repairs are often the first solution that comes to mind. However, if you find yourself frequently repairing your HVAC system, it may be a sign that it’s time to replace it. Consider the cost of repairs versus the cost of a replacement. If the cost of repairs is more than 50% of the cost of a new system, it’s often more cost-effective to replace the system.
  3. Efficiency of the HVAC System – Efficiency is a crucial factor when considering a repair or replacement. If your HVAC system is not operating efficiently, it can result in higher energy bills and decreased comfort. If your HVAC system has a low SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating, replacing it with a more energy-efficient system may be more cost-effective. A new, energy-efficient system can provide substantial energy savings over the lifetime of the system.
  4. Comfort Level – If you’re experiencing inconsistent temperatures, poor air quality, or excessive noise, it may be time to replace your HVAC system. A new HVAC system can provide improved comfort, better air quality, and reduced noise levels.

When considering whether to repair or replace your HVAC system, if it is approaching the end of its lifespan, requires frequent repairs, operates inefficiently, or does not provide adequate comfort, it may be time to replace it. While a new HVAC system may require a significant upfront investment, it can provide long-term energy savings, improved comfort, and peace of mind knowing that your system is operating efficiently.
