Knowing when you need to perform HVAC repairs, versus when you should replace your HVAC system altogether, is an important distinction. In this video, a professional guides you through what to consider before making that possibly costly call.
These decisions should be made prior to summer starting as equipment failure typically happens in the summer as the temperature increases. As a unit ages, repairs need to occur more frequently.
If you find yourself repairing the same system multiple times a year, it may be more cost-effective to spend the money on a new system that will cause you fewer issues.
Most commercial HVAC systems work for roughly 15 years, but this can change depending on how consistent you are with maintenance and service history. As your equipment ages, your energy costs can increase due to how inefficient an old system might be. Remember, these decisions come at the expense of your bank account, so make sure you make the right choice for you!
