Every year many homeowners find themselves wondering if it’s time to replace the current heating and cooling system. However, many people don’t have their furnace and air conditioning system replaced when it starts to require repair. Most people have their heating and cooling system repaired multiple times before replacement. If you’re in this situation, consider the advantages and disadvantages of replacing your heating and cooling system, instead of having it repaired again.

One advantage of replacement vs. repaired is that you could see a drop in your energy bill. This is true if your current unit is 15 or more years old. New HVAC systems are more energy efficient. Plus, when you replace your heating and cooling unit, you may find the temperature in your home to be more comfortable. Increased reliability and Ellingson’s 12-year parts and labor warranty on most new residential products are even more reasons to consider replacement.
