How do I know when it’s time to replace my system?
By following these simple guidelines, you can estimate whether or not fixing vs. repairing is the right decision. On average the lifetime of:
an air conditioning unit is 10-15 yrs
a furnace is 15-20 yrs
However, these are guidelines. If a unit has been repaired several times, or has had higher than average wear, then even if it’s before the average lifetime of a typical system, it might make sense to replace it. Some systems can cost just $3000 to replace, so if you take into account the age of the system plus the cost of a repair at $500, it probably makes more sense just to replace it.
How do I know if my system is working properly?
Is it starting to make noises? Is it cooling and/or heating all areas of the house sufficiently? Have your utility bills gone up for no apparent reason? Has it been taking longer to cool down or heat up the space? Any of these are signs that you may need service to avert any further serious damage to your system as well as keep your home or business comfortable for the people and pets in it.
