Why should you replace your HVAC system when a repair will do the trick? Here are our four Expert Express Tips to help you diagnose when to repair (and not replace) a furnace or air conditioner.
When to Repair
- If your furnace is less than 15 years old, a repair might fix the issue and allow for several more years of comfort.
- If the repair is less than $500. At the $500 mark, it might be more cost efficient to simply invest those funds in an entirely new unit that may avoid future repairs.
- If you’re going to sell your house in the next six months. With such a pending life change, invest your funds in the long-term comfort and stability of your future home rather than your current one.
- If your trusted technician recommends a repair rather than a replacement. You’ve found a knowledgeable, reliable technician, and we will clearly explain the pros and cons of a repair vs. a replacement. After thoroughly and carefully assessing your home and energy bills, our technicians can recommend the most cost-effective option that will yield the best long-term benefits for your family.
