We may have mild winters in Juno Beach, Florida, but it’s still important to take stock of your heating system this time of year. While a repair can be a budget-savvy way to keep your heater running for another year, a heating replacement might be the better option.
Heating Repairs Are Getting Too Expensive
There comes a point when continuing to repair your outdated heating system exceeds the cost of purchasing a new one. You should replace the system long before this point.
A good guideline to follow is to replace the system if the unit is nearing the end of its life expectancy and repairs cost more than one-third the cost of its replacement. For example, you don’t want to pay $800 to repair a 15-year-old system you can replace for $2,000.
You’re Always Calling an HVAC Service Technician
Even if your system has a series of minor issues that aren’t necessarily that expensive to fix, they can indicate a bigger problem. When a heating unit experiences frequent problems, it’s only a matter of time before it breaks down. The best course of action is to replace the system before those small problems lead to a major breakdown.
Energy Bills Are Unexpectedly Increasing
Have you noticed an increase in your utility bills from last year? If your HVAC system is old, you can guarantee it’s losing efficiency. And since it takes more energy to operate and provide the same comfort you’re used to, you’re going to pay extra. You can reduce those energy costs by replacing an outdated unit instead of repairing it.
