Repair vs Replace

Repair or Replace?

You may be facing an emergency situation where you need to make a decision whether to repair or to replace your HVAC system and it might not be easy! That’s why Dilmak is here to help you with where to start in a decision that can make or break your summer comfort.

Here are a few major factors you need to consider when facing this dilemma:

  • Age: The average HVAC system lasts 10-15 years and depending on how well maintained it is. If your system lies between this age range, it is best to consider replacing your system rather than repairing your system. If you choose to repair your system at the end of its life, you may find yourself spending more and more on repairs and then inevitably replacing your system anyway.
  • Efficiency: HVAC technology is constantly upgrading and advancing. Just like any other major electronics you have such as your car, computer, or phone, you want to make sure you can take advantage of new features that help increase efficiency. Having an HVAC system with more progressive technologies will help you lower your costs on energy bills and cut the amount of repairs you will need.
  • Comfort: Have you noticed that your HVAC system seems to need constant adjusting? Is it turning on and off frequently? Is the air it’s “conditioning” for you feel damp or stuffy? These are a few indications that your system may not be up to par. Consider hiring a local professional to help diagnose the issue and recommend solutions for your case.
