Repair vs Replacing Your HVAC System

Assess the current condition of your unit and note what appears to be not properly working. For instance, you may be experiencing strange odors or noises coming from the unit. Or, your monthly energy bill may be rising. Such issues can make you wonder, "Is it time to repair or replace my HVAC system?"

That's where our licensed and trained air-conditioning technicians can help you decide if now is the best time for an ac repair or ac replacement. In fact, upon a consultation request, we can walk you through the methodology to understand how much a new system could save you in the long run.

Of course, before scheduling a consultation, you may be looking for some of the common signs it could be time to replace your HVAC system.

5 Signs It's Time to Replace

1) Your system is older than 10 years — When was your HVAC system installed? The age of your unit is a good starting point when assessing whether a replacement is necessary. According to the Department of Energy, if your heat pump or air conditioner is more than 10 years old, you should consider replacing it with a new, more efficient unit with the ENERGY STAR label.

2) You experience frequent repairs and rising energy bills — As your unit ages, it becomes less efficient, which can result in frequent repairs and rising energy bills. A new unit can provide peace of mind with fewer repairs and more money in your pocket with increased energy efficiency.

3) Your unit is noisy — If your unit is excessively noisy, this could indicate an improperly sized unit or a problem beyond repairable. Your HVAC system should operate quietly. Thus, do not ignore unusual noises. The longer you let them fester, the riskier it becomes for a high repair bill or need for replacement.

Our AC repair technicians can properly diagnose your noisy unit and find the best course of action from there.

4) Your home has excessive dust — Do you notice excessive dust in your home?

This can be a sign of leaky ductwork, which, in turn, can increase the wear on your unit and cause it to break down.

5) Your home has poor indoor air quality — Along similar lines, if you're noticing poor indoor air quality, it could be time for replacement. For example, symptoms such as mold, mildew, or humidity issues are not normal. You can improve your air quality with a new unit such as the Carrier Infinity Air Conditioners line.
