When should you repair or replace your HVAC system? No one tells you how expensive a new one is, and a new furnace and air conditioner is a large investment. This isn’t something you can just get at a department store, like a washing machine! You have to pick the system you want, choose the style and a size. There are different sizes, styles and brands for each heater and air conditioner. Then, you have to choose a company to install and maintain it. When the unit won’t turn on, or quickly turns off, it’s a bad morning!
My philosophy is, when in doubt, try to repair it. Most of the time, it’s cheaper, and there are added costs when you have to start from scratch. However, if your HVAC is over 10 years old, it is basically done. Most units don’t live longer than that. If you need it repaired every week, then it’s not worth saving. Sometimes you have to know when to throw in the towel. If it’s too much of a burden, pitch it and get a new one!
