Should I Repair or Replace?
There are many factors to consider when deciding whether to repair or replace, including how old your HVAC system is and how long you’re staying in your home. However, an easy way to help you decide lies in determining what it will cost you to keep your existing HVAC system.
A lot of people believe “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it” but this overlooks considerations like how much you’re setting yourself back with frequent repairs for a system on its last legs. Say, you invest in a new system today with upfront costs of $6,000. A new heating and cooling system won’t require repairs so you’re looking at an average of $1,000 saved in repair costs over the course of five years.
If you stick it out with repairs and wait for five years before replacing your HVAC system, you’re looking at 10% more in upfront costs plus the accumulated repair costs you’ve had to deal with within that period.
If you’re already paying for a new system given the higher utility bills and repair expenses you have, it makes more sense to simply opt for a replacement. Otherwise, repairs will be the more practical choice for you.
Which Contractor Should I Choose?
Choosing a contractor can be mind-boggling, but it doesn’t have to overwhelm. Just keep in mind these tips:
- Look for licensed and experienced professionals.
- Make sure they are in good standing with the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada; the Better Business Bureau; the North American Technician Excellence (NATE); and the Workplace Safety & Insurance Board.
- Make sure they have an established showroom you can visit.
- Make sure they are available 24/7 to attend to HVAC emergencies.
- Make sure they offer insurance coverage for installers.
