How Do I Know When I Need to Repair Or Replace My HVAC System?

Old HVAC System

When your heating or cooling system isn't working the right way, it is always best to call out our experienced team to help you determine what repairs are needed. At Jerry's Air Conditioning & Heating, our goal is to help you to get your HVAC system back up and working in no time. One of the most common concerns homeowners have, though, is knowing when they should upgrade to a new HVAC system. Are repairs good enough? Should you upgrade now?

Get a Thorough Inspection

One of the first steps is to have a thorough inspection of your home's heating and cooling system. This process will pinpoint specific areas of concern for you, such as whether you just need the filters cleaned or if you need a new valve installed. In many situations, repairs are an option and are going to be more affordable than replacement. This is most common on systems that are under 10 years old. As your heating and cooling systems get older, it becomes less likely that repairs will be minor. However, we'll always work with you to perform the repairs you want when you want them done.

Reasons for Upgrading to a New HVAC

There are a variety of reasons why you may want to upgrade your heating and cooling system rather than making repairs.

  • Is the system very old and parts for it are no longer available or are very costly? This is a good indication that it may be a good time to upgrade to a new system.
  • Is the heating or cooling system no longer functional or repairable? Though rare, this can happen when significant repairs are needed to motors.
  • Is the existing system no longer efficient? On models that are more than 15 to 20 years old, efficiency is a big consideration. Work with our team to determine if you are spending too much money to keep your home warm or cold because you have an inefficient system.
  • Generally speaking, it's always a good idea to call our team to learn about your specific options. Contact Jerry's Air Conditioning & Heating with any questions you may have. We're happy to schedule service with you today to discuss any specific concerns. Ask us about Jerry's HVAC Service Club, which can help you to keep from having to replace your system too soon.
