Is it Time for a New Furnace Or Air Conditioner ?

What is the right time to replace your heating and cooling equipment? You might not even know the answer and most of the time it is because you don’t know the right questions to ask! Well, look no further because we are providing the right questions and indicators for you. Comfort and safety are our top priorities and we know that replacing in time can save you money too! Actually, as a home or business owner, you can answer these questions better than anyone else by looking for the signs that indicate it’s time to replace your current system.

Just beware, some repairs will improve your equipment’s performance but if you want efficiency - any system that is approaching the end of its life expectancy will be less energy efficient than a newer and leading-edge system. While there are no specific rules for replacing equipment, there is important information that you can take into consideration that will help you make a wise and economically wise decision and choice.

Question 1: Is your heat pump or air conditioner 10 years or older?

You may want to consider a higher efficiency unit with the Energy Star® label that can save the average home or business owner up to 20% on energy costs. If the furnace or boiler in your property is 15 or older, an Energy Star® compatible furnace would provide 15% more efficiency. In addition, an Energy Star® compatible boiler would offer 5% more efficiency.

Question 2: Is your energy bill a little higher than usual?

Are you aware that your heating and cooling system accounts for about 50% of your home’s energy use? That’s why your decision to upgrade to new Energy Star® qualified equipment ensures that your unit meets or exceeds the Federal standards for energy efficiency. You may also consider the cost of your system’s repairs. Consider adhering to a helpful rule of thumb and replace a product when repairs exceed half the cost of a new one.

Question 3: How do you replace it with the most cost-effective and best technology?
