Why It Might Be Time to Replace Instead of Repair

Your HVAC system just broke down and we don’t blame you for looking at the most cost-effective options for repairing it. However, it may be cheaper in the long run to replace the unit all-together. Here are some reasons you might want to consider upgrading your HVAC equipment:

Old and Out of Touch

Well-maintained systems can last from 15 to 20 years depending on where you live and how hard your equipment works to heat and cool your home. The average household spends almost half of its energy budget on heating and cooling alone. Looking into installing an energy-efficient system can save you more than 45% in energy costs.

Additional Repairs

Older, outdated systems might need frequent repairs. Even if they’re minor, they’re inconvenient and can be costly. If you have to pay for similar repairs more often than not, it’s probably time to replace your unit.

Energy Bill Cost Savings

From leaky ducts to incorrect unit sizing, your system might be costing you way more than its work. If your unit is over working with little result, it might be time to consider a new unit for your home.

“I first met Marcus Pickett, the owner, in 2006 when he installed a new furnace in my home as part of a city rehab project. Out of all the contractors who worked on my house, he is the only one I still do business with, and I had him put in central air in 2009. He does quality work at reasonable rates, and the equipment is reliable and efficient. But what impresses me the most is his attitude. He sees each customer as an individual, not just an invoice. He is professional yet friendly, explains all your options and really tries to help you get the best value for your money.”

“Our furnace went out in January, on one of the coldest days we had this past winter. We called Temperature Doctors off of a recommendation, and they sent someone out and made sure we were able to get the furnace up and running that night. We would HIGHLY recommend Temperature Doctors to anyone looking for an honest, trustworthy company to maintain, repair or replace their existing units. Thank you for all of your help, Temperature Doctors!!”
