Yes, we can repair any problem with your heat pump or air conditioner in most cases. But is that really what you want?
Usually repairs make sense. But sometimes they do not. After 2005, new federal energy standards will boost the cost of air conditioning equipment by 35% or more. This year, it might make more sense to apply the cost of a repair towards a new system.
Why Replace Now?
If your equipment is ten years old, you can apply the cost of today’s repair towards a new system. You save the expense of more repairs this year or next year, cut utility expense, and avoid the 35% cost premium resulting from the new federal energy mandate. If your equipment is ten years old, you will need to replace it in a few years anyway. Today’s repair may be little more than money down the drain. Instead of spending money on repairs, invest in a new system that’s almost as efficient as required by the new standard, but considerably less expensive.
How Can I Save The Most Money Today?
With approved credit, you may qualify to finance the entire cost of a new heating and air conditioning system. Depending on your qualification and available programs, payments may be offset by your utility bill savings with a modern, new, more efficient system. Plus, you will not have the nasty surprise of more unexpected repairs.
Will Comfort Improve?
Yes. Newer, more efficient systems usually result in dramatic improvements in the comfort of your home. Of course, it may be necessary to replace old, worn, leaky duct systems to ensure you get the most from your system.
