Repair or Replace? Things to consider…
Age of your system: Air conditioners and heat pumps last an average of 10 to 12 years, while furnaces have a life span of around 15 to 20 years. If your equipment is old and outdated, expect more repairs in the near future.
Outdated technology: Technology is constantly changing and improving. This is as true for HVAC systems as it is for your phone and other mechanical equipment. By replacing aging equipment, you’ll be gain smart new features and increased efficiencies that can save you money on your utility bills.
Cost of repairs: Replacement is often a better investment than repair. As a good rule of thumb, Consumer Reports recommends replacing a product when repairs exceed 50% of the cost of a new one.

Routine maintenance and tune ups keep your HVAC system running as efficiently as possible and can prolong the life span of your equipment by several years.
