What to Know Before You Replace Your HVAC System

Over time, heating and cooling units will lose their efficiency and you’ll need to know a few things before you go dropping anywhere from 6-8k on a new HVAC system (and that’s without ductwork!). Before you buy, consider these options.

Get Estimates Upfront

Before you shell out money to any HVAC company, consider their work history, experience, reviews, and most importantly, get pricing estimates upfront. One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning provides you with honest and transparent pricing before we do any work so there are no hidden fees.

Take Advantage of Promotions

Don’t just settle—shop around for manufacturer rebates, offers, and special promotions. Contact your local HVAC company to see what they have to offer. You could also find special financing and other programs to help with the cost of an HVAC system replacement.

Get the Right Efficiency Rating for Your Home

A reputable HVAC technician will walk you through efficiency options, take home measurements, and provide system choices. Make sure they do the homework before you sign for any work to be done.

Repair or Replace?

Generally speaking, systems should last you anywhere from 10-20 years depending on the type of unit, maintenance, its usage, and where you live. You can get the most out of your HVAC system with care and attention. Be sure to service your HVAC system regularly to avoid major headaches down the road.

While you can maximize the life of your system with regular repairs and maintenance, there comes a time when the system will eventually give out.
