Cost: It may be less expensive to repair your current system, but if your system continually fails, season after season, it may be time to invest in a replacement. In the long term, the amount you’re spending on repair will continue to increase and, at some point, may be as much as a system replacement.
Age: HVAC systems usually last between 15-20 years. If you’re system is in that age range–or older–then a replacement may be imminent. Repairs and maintenance will help you for a short while, but eventually it will be cost prohibitive to continue trying to make a system work that has passed it’s ability to heat or cool your home.
Efficiency: When your energy bills seem too high, it may be because your system is not as efficient as a newer system. AFUE and SEER ratings have steadily improved in the last decade, meaning installing a newer system could cut your energy bills significantly.
