Your HVAC system is undoubtedly one of the most important systems for keeping your home safe and comfortable. There are a lot of moving parts in these systems, so it can be difficult to figure out on your own if you should repair or replace them. Flood damage after an event like Hurricane Ian makes things even trickier.

Even a small amount of water damage can expose your AC to malfunction, make it less efficient overall, and can drastically shorten its lifespan.

Fortunately, the height of the summer season is past us, but we all know that temperatures in Florida area can fluctuate all year long. So, it’s important to get your home’s HVAC system back into peak operating shape as soon as you can.

If you’re a homeowner who needs to decide whether to repair or replace your HVAC system, you’ll need to consider when the best time may be to get a replacement, what your best long-term option is, and whether a new HVAC system will prove to be a good investment when it comes to dependability and functionality.

To help you figure out whether you need an HVAC repair or replacement, the HVAC repair, installation, and maintenance professionals at Best Home Services are here to walk you through some HVAC warning signs, the biggest reasons to get an HVAC repair or replacement, important health and safety concerns, and a few other factors to keep in mind if you’re repairing or replacing your HVAC system.

Signs of possible HVAC damage

Have you noticed that your HVAC system is running more inefficiently or getting a little sluggish? Before you decide whether to replace or repair your system, you should keep an eye out for a few telltale signs that can help you figure out what your next steps should be.

Clogged filters

When first deciding how to tackle an HVAC system that seems to be slowing down, a good first step to take is to see whether your filters are clogged. Make sure to check on your filters at least once a month and schedule a routine replacement for them with the team at Best Home Services.

Leaks in your HVAC system

Diagnosing leaks in your HVAC system is a pretty straightforward process but fixing them can be a whole other matter. If you suspect your system is leaking, check to see if you notice liquid that’s coming from places other than your condenser pipe. Our HVAC team will confirm any leaky pipes—schedule a free assessment today!

Reasons to schedule an HVAC repair

It may be in your best interest to schedule an HVAC repair if your system is still generally performing well and doesn’t often require repairs. Most HVAC systems have lifespans of around 10 to 15 years, so the age of your HVAC unit matters when considering whether to repair or replace it.

Financially speaking, repairs usually make sense for HVAC systems that are less than five years old. If repairs are simple enough and may benefit you and your system, there’s a good chance that you only need to schedule repairs rather than a complete replacement.

The Best Home Services HVAC team can help you determine whether a potential repair cost would be less than half of your system’s value. If we determine that your repair cost would be greater than half of your HVAC system’s value, we’ll recommend that you get a full-on system replacement. We also want to help you save your cash for other home repairs or recovery efforts by offering different financial options for our services. If you’re still not sure whether a repair or replacement is best for you, give Best Home Services a call today at 239-244-1169 for a free assessment.
