Repair or Replace?
It’s a fact - all mechanical systems weren’t made to last forever. And one of the most difficult decisions any homeowner faces is whether to repair or replace an aging air conditioning and heating system.
Here are just a few things to consider about your outdated system:
Did you know that?
Of the hundreds of heating and air conditioning systems that the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power examined:
Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) - What is it?
Air conditioner efficiency is often rated by the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). The higher the SEER rating of a unit, the more energy efficient it is. When deciding whether to repair or replace, it’s important to factor in a comfort system’s SEER.
The costs of ownership
Depending on the type of home comfort system you have, the total annual costs to keep an older system can be substantial.
(Comparisons based on existing older models: 6- S.E.E.R. vs. new 13-15 S.E.E.R and existing older models- with 60 % A.F.U.E. vs. 80-90 % A.F.U.E.)
The value of a new system
Replacing your home comfort system now will give you all the benefits of reliable, clean, healthy and comfortable indoor air. Even better, it will add up to $15,000 to the value of your home, while saving you an average of $10,000 in five years over the costs to run an older, inefficient system!
