Questions about Replacing HVAC Systems

Homeowners rely on their heating and air conditioning system to keep them warm in the winter and cool during the summer months. Even with yearly tune-ups and maintenance to keep your system running at peak efficiency, all HVAC systems have a limited lifespan and will need to be replaced at some point.

When it comes to replacing your HVAC system, most homeowners have a few questions. Here are some of the questions homeowners ask us every day about replacing their heating and cooling system.

Why do I need to replace my HVAC system?

One of the big factors in replacing your HVAC system is efficiency. Older furnace and boiler systems have efficiencies of 56% to 70%, while newer high-efficiency heating systems can achieve efficiencies up to 97%. Newer systems convert almost all the fuel to useful heat for your home and can often reduce your heating costs.

Another reason is if your system is breaking down frequently and the repair costs keep adding up, it may be more cost-effective to replace a system than repair it. Certain parts on older models are more expensive to repair than a system replacement.

When should I replace my HVAC system?

We recommend replacing your HVAC system in-between seasons.
