Out With The Old, In With The New. We can take care of it!
Your HVAC system is one of the largest investments you make for your home or business, so you want to get as much out of it as possible. However, there will come a time when you have to replace it, no matter how well it has been maintained.
We’ve put together a list of factors you should consider when deciding to repair or upgrade your HVAC system, along with questions you need to ask when purchasing a new unit.
In general, it’s time for an upgrade if:
- Your AC unit is over 10 years old
- Your energy bills keep going up
- The repair costs exceed half the price of a new system
- Your spaces have uneven temperatures
A brand new HVAC unit means you spend more money upfront than you would for repairs or a replacement part, but you will save money in the long run due to more efficient energy usage.
Replacing Your System- What You Need to Know
Replacing your current HVAC system is a significant purchase. What size unit will be the most effective for your home or business? How do you know you’re getting the most energy-efficient system for your money?
At The Cooling Company, we will guide you through the HVAC replacement process with integrity and honesty. After considering factors like those listed below, we will recommend a system that delivers the heating and cooling you need for a price you can afford.
- Building Size
- Load Calculations
- SEER Rating
- EER Rating
- Efficiency Rating
Estimating HVAC Replacement Costs
The average lifespan of an HVAC unit is about 15-20 years, which means that nearly every homeowner will need to replace their furnace or heater as a result of it giving out.
When our HVAC contractor arrives at your home or business, they will measure the square footage of the property and carry out load calculations. After the assessment is complete, the contractor will recommend the best system type and size for your space, along with recommended steps or upgrades such as:
- Repairing cracked or damaged ductwork
- Resealing windows and doors
- Repairing wall cracks that might allow conditioned air to escape
- Replacing the insulation in the attic and crawl spaces
These preventative steps set the stage for an ideal operating environment for the new system.
Depending on its condition, your ductwork may have to be replaced. Some duct systems fail to move air efficiently because they are too short, too long, kinked, or leaking. If your ductwork is not properly sized for the new system or it needs to be cleaned or repaired, we will include the cost in our estimate.
What Type of HVAC Unit Should You Get?
You have several options when it comes to choosing an HVAC system. Living in Nevada, you will probably want to install a central air conditioning system unless there are varying temperature needs within the same building, in which case you can opt for a ductless mini-split set-up.
Common choices include:
- Split air conditioning systems
- Packaged systems
- High-efficiency systems
- Heat pumps
