Most people think that repairing your HVAC system will be cheaper than replacing it in all circumstances. However, if your system if more than a decade old, this may not be the case.
As your HVAC system ages, maintenance and repair costs will add up. To keep them from piling up for years to come, consider replacing your system if it would be more cost-effective to do so.
If It Isn’t Broken…
On the flip side, newer systems may not require much more than a tune-up to remain viable. Don’t jump straight to replacement just because your system is misbehaving. Talk to an expert to find out more about your specific situation.
When you’re looking to cut costs on an ongoing basis, consider upgrading or entirely replacing your HVAC system for a more energy-efficient and greener option.
