Purchasing a new HVAC system is a big decision and an even larger investment. Newcomb Heating and Cooling helps our customers choose the right time for a new HVAC installation as opposed to dumping money into an existing system or forcing them into a new system before it is necessary. If a replacement is necessary, we pride ourselves on working closely with our customers to determine the HVAC unit that will best fit the heating and cooling needs of their space.
Many of our customers wonder, “When is it time for an HVAC replacement?”
Here are some of the main determining factors:
- Age – If your existing HVAC unit is 10-15 years old, then it may be time for an HVAC replacement.
- Expensive Repairs – It may be more cost effective to replace your HVAC unit if the repairs on your older unit are becoming more frequent and increasingly expensive.
- Heating and Cooling Capabilities – If your older unit is no longer capable of keeping your space heated or cooled to a comfortable temperature, then you may want to consider a new HVAC installation.
- Energy Efficiency – If your energy bills are high because you have an older, inefficient HVAC unit, then spending money on an HVAC replacement now may allow you to recoup your savings in energy bills in a short period of time.
Newcomb Heating and Air understands that the HVAC unit plays an integral role in your HVAC system, but so does the duct work! Commonly overlooked by HVAC contractors, the duct work is key in maintaining good air quality and system efficiency. When we conduct your HVAC installation, we follow a strict four step process to ensure that air can ONLY enter in the return and out the supply. In addition to saving you money, these steps protect your family against air pollutants and the risk of combustion gas “backdrafting” which can be caused by leaky ducts.
