You’ve been nursing along an older HVAC system trying to put off the inevitable expense of the new HVAC system. You know the day is looming when the repairs just won’t work anymore. However, you could be missing the opportunity to make a very smart investment. Those nagging repair bills will only continue to mount. Seize the opportunity to improve your home while spending your money wisely.
Here are 5 smart reasons to invest in a new Air Conditioning System.
Repairs Can Be Wasteful
Do the math. How many times have you called the HVAC crew over to patch up your failing system? On average, what was the cost of each visit plus parts? Have you paid extra fees for emergency calls? (Because these units are apt to fail on the hottest or coldest day of the year!)
Some repairs are expected. Your HVAC system is a mechanical unit with parts and pieces that get worn out and need to be replaced. However, if your system is nearing the end of its useful life cycle, repairs can become wasteful of your money.
In addition to the math that you just did, look at your wasted time. If you’ve had to leave work early or skip important family outings to wait for the HVAC technician, that’s wasted time that you can’t recover.
If your HVAC system is over 5 years old, you’re probably missing out on the convenience of cutting-edge smart technologies.
New technological advances allow you to control your HVAC system from anywhere in the world via your cell phone. So, if you leave for your vacation and realize you left the A/C set to your own optimal comfort level of 72 degrees, you can pull up an app and change the temperature to a toastier temperature of 82 while you are away. Bon voyage!
Increased Comfort in Your Home
A new HVAC system can also benefit you in terms of increased comfort in your home. As your system ages, it’s likely that you’ve developed zones in your home that are more comfortable. Maybe you have a stuffy room or a room that’s always the coolest place in the house.
Your unit is not running as efficiently. All members of your family will be equally comfortable when you finally take the plunge and invest in a new unit.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Going green. It seems like everyone’s doing it. You recycle your plastic bags, use your grass clippings as mulch, and shop for organic veggies. But, you’re still clinging to your old energy-sucking HVAC unit.
Because of new technologies that have emerged since you installed your unit, HVAC systems have become more efficient than you can imagine. New units are designed to run more efficiently, so they consume less energy and run less frequently.
That’s the way to go green!
Save Money on Your Utility Expenses
Not only can you save money on your HVAC repair bills, but you can also save even more cash on your monthly utility expenses. Because the efficiency of your old unit is declining, it needs to run longer to achieve the proper temperature. Therefore, your unit is using more energy than ever before, and you’re seeing the increases on your utility bills.
Replacing that aging unit will help minimize your monthly spend on utilities.
A new HVAC system can save you both time and money. In addition, it can create a more comfortable and greener home for your family.
Your repaired HVAC unit is nearing the end of its life. The need for a new HVAC unit is inevitable. Would you not prefer to budget for a replacement now in a controlled manner or to scramble to gather up the cash later on?
