Should You Repair or Replace Your HVAC System?


If your heating and air conditioning system isn’t functioning at peak efficiency, you may have thought of repairing or replacing it. To determine the best course of action, you should first consider a few different factors. Premier Comfort AC talks about them in detail below.

HVAC Repair vs. Replacement

The age of the unit. It can be difficult to acquire replacement parts for repairs on older models. As manufacturers continue to develop more energy-efficient units, they begin to phase out older models and their components. If your heating and air conditioning system is relatively new, it may be easier to perform necessary repairs. If it’s old and requires frequent maintenance, however, it may be more cost-effective to replace the unit rather than repairing it. 

The overall condition of the unit. While in many instances an older heating and cooling system will warrant replacement, you should also take into account the overall condition of the unit. In some cases, your unit may only need to be cleaned up or fine-tuned. Hiring an expert HVAC technician who can perform tune-ups and repairs on older units may just save you more money in the long run.

How often the unit runs. Do you need to service the HVAC system in your family home, or a vacation house that’s only used on occasion? If your unit doesn’t run all the time, you may be able to get away with a repair. On the other hand, if you rely on your heating and cooling system on a regular basis, then replacing it may be a more sensible option.
