Why should I consider replacing my heating or air conditioning system?
There are a number of factors to consider when determining whether to repair or replace an existing system. Depending on the type and age of the unit you currently have installed, you may be able to save a significant amount of money by replacing it with a newer, more energy efficient unit.
Systems manufactured as recently as 8 to 10 years ago are up to 60% less energy efficient than systems on the market today. This means that in many cases a new unit can pay for itself in lower energy costs in a very short time.
If you are facing a large repair on an older system, it might be a good time to replace the unit instead of simply buying a few more years on a system that will eventually need replacing. If financing a new unit, the monthly energy savings can usually offset the majority of the cost of a new system.
