The best time to repair or replace your HVAC unit is in the fall or winter. That’s because you won’t be using your AC unit in the winter. You would not want to replace or repair it when it is 90 degrees outside because you will be in a rush to get it fixed and may not be thorough in your search for HVAC products or new units. Plus, could you imagine being without air conditioning when it’s hot and humid outside? You and your family will be really uncomfortable for the length of time it takes to get the unit fixed.
If your HVAC system is over 10 years old, it may be getting worn out and you may want to look at repairs or replacing. If it is still running great, then you won’t need to do a thing but it is important that you maintain it so that it keeps running. If you purchased a lower quality brand of HVAC, it will most likely need repairing soon. If it is less than 10 years old and you have already had to do several repairs, it may be time to look at getting a new one. Although this is a big expense, it’s also an important investment. Air conditioning and heating is a big part of your home’s value and the comfort and health of your family. A great working HVAC system will make a huge difference in how you feel.
Winter is the best time to do a check of all the components of your HVAC system. Since it is the off season for most HVAC companies, they should be able to come out to your home in a reasonable amount of time and take a look at it to make sure it is in good condition. They will check the coils and compressor to make sure there are not any leaks or breaks. They may also check the filtration system and the duct system. The technician may make recommendations if he sees that things may be getting worn or corroded. If your unit can be repaired, that is better than having to replace the entire system.
If you do have to replace your HVAC system, look for a high quality brand and a technician who can install the unit properly. Don’t be afraid to spend the extra money to get a really good system. You will be happier in the long run.
When winter rolls around, it’s time to check your HVAC unit and either repair or replace it. Then you will be ready for summer and those hot temperatures.
