Provide reliable, long-lasting heating and cooling performance–that’s what your HVAC system is designed to do. But like most home components that see constant use, your HVAC system can be susceptible to damage and performance issues. Whether an HVAC repair or a replacement is the most appropriate solution in these situations comes down to a few important factors. In this post, a trusted heater and air conditioner service provider in the area, OK Heating & Air Conditioning, shares which questions to ask before making a decision.
- How old is your HVAC system? Most heating and air conditioning systems can last 15-20 years. If your current HVAC system is barely a decade old, then expert repair work is likely the most appropriate solution to this problem. But if the system is already nearing the end of its service life, you should probably start planning for a replacement. At this point, its components are already breaking down, and repair or maintenance may not cut it anymore.
- How much maintenance does it receive? The fact is your HVAC system should be inspected and tuned up at the start of each season. This helps maintain superior heating and cooling performance while also extending its lifespan. Poor maintenance increases the risk of breakdowns, prompting the need for repair work. However, there are cases where the issues resulting from ineffective upkeep can fast-track a replacement. To determine the best solution, have your trusted local HVAC technician, OK Heating & Air Conditioning, perform a comprehensive assessment of your system’s overall condition.
- How is the HVAC system’s energy performance? Any damage to your HVAC system will not only affect thermal comfort inside your home, it will also compromise its energy efficiency. If the system no longer heats or cools your living space properly and you notice an increase in your energy bill, the best thing to do is get a replacement.
