To Repair Or Replace? (That Is The Question!)

When things in our homes break down, we have to make important decisions about what would be the best thing to do “repair or replace”. When it comes to the heating and cooling systems in your home, either way you look at it, this can become expensive. Depending on the type of system you have and the decision you make, the bill could be in the hundreds up to the thousands of dollars.

One thing you should consider is the age of your system. If it is over 15 years old and you decide to repair it, there may be other things that could go wrong costing you more money down the road. With this in mind, it might be more cost effective in the long run to replace the system. New systems that are more efficient will save you money on your utility bills, and higher efficiency systems could qualify for federal and state tax credits. Even some utility companies are giving cash incentives if you upgrade your system to a high efficiency one. Your utility company can tell you what programs they might have available.

There are things you can do to save yourself from high repair costs or having to replace your system too soon. Having your system serviced regularly will keep it running at its peak efficiency and doing this could help you avoid costly repairs in the future. Also, keeping the filter clean is an inexpensive way that you can help your system stay efficient, and this will also help your indoor air quality. Ask your local service technician to show you the things that you can do to keep your system running at its best.

The more you know about what type of system you have, how old it is, how it works, and how often you have it serviced, the more prepared you will be when it comes to making the important decision on whether to repair or replace the system.
