While repairs can often fix issues, there are signs that indicate a system might need replacement:
– The system is over 15 years old and frequently breaks down.
– Energy bills are consistently rising without a change in usage patterns.
– The system struggles to maintain desired temperatures or runs continuously.
– You’re facing expensive repairs, especially if the cost approaches or exceeds half the price of a new system.
– The system uses outdated refrigerants, like R-22.
Consult with an HVAC professional to evaluate whether a repair or replacement is more cost-effective.
