Repair or Replace
In Sarasota, the decision on whether to repair or replace an HVAC system is typically based on price. If the price for HVAC repair is not cost-effective, we usually advise our customers to replace the HVAC system. Having to replace a thermostat, fan motor, blower, coil, belt or valve are typically cost-effective repairs. Life expectancy, efficiency and current condition of the HVAC system are also factors to consider when facing any HVAC repair.
The average life expectancy for any HVAC system can range anywhere from 10 to 20 years. Units over 10 years old can become expensive to repair, and sometimes replacement parts are no longer available. If you live in an area near the ocean in Sarasota, the lifecycle of your unit may be shortened due to corrosion from high salt content. It’s important to consider the age of your system when you’re deciding to replace or repair your unit. Our knowledgeable technicians will help you do a cost analysis on whether repair or replacement is the best option.
If you’re facing hefty HVAC repairs on an older system, it may be more economical to install a newer more efficient system. With today’s advanced technology and increasing energy standards set forth by the government, the newer systems can save you up to 40 percent in energy savings. Many of these new systems pay for themselves in three years with the savings in energy costs. Many of the older HVAC systems only have a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) of 10, and the newer models offer SEER up to 26. Although the higher efficiency systems are more expensive, there are current initiatives that can help you save money, including tax credits on your annual return.
The condition of your existing HVAC system is another factor to consider when trying to decide whether to repair or replace. If your HVAC system experiences frequent breakdowns or is an inferior brand, replacement may be the best option. Restoring a system that is in poor condition is usually prohibitively expensive.
