HVAC Repair Vs. Replacement: Which Option Is Right for You?, Lorimor, Iowa

It can be a serious inconvenience when your HVAC unit isn’t functioning, especially during the winter months. If you’re deciding whether to repair or replace the system, there are a few items you should consider before moving forward. The HVAC repair experts at Love’s Heating & AC in Lorimor, IA, share a few tips below to aid in your decision.

When to Repair

It is very rare that you will need to completely replace a system that is less than a decade old. Since most warranties last up to 10 years, it is worth it to get units fixed by a trusted HVAC contractor. 

HVAC RepairAnother instance where HVAC repair is a better option is when your home isn’t insulated well. Faulty insulation causes the heating and cooling system to work much harder than it needs to in order to regulate the temperature. To remedy the issue, have your contractor seal any duct leakages as well as the holes in your insulation.

When to Replace

Any air conditioning unit over the age of 10 or a furnace over the age of 15 should be replaced. Models manufactured 10 to 15 years ago don’t feature the same energy-efficient technology as newer models. Buying a new system will help you lower high energy bills and keep your home at a comfortable temperature all year long.

In addition to the age of your system, the price is a factor as well. The cost of a new HVAC system installation is worth it if you find yourself constantly calling for repairs, as these can sometimes end up being more than purchasing a different unit entirely.
