When it comes to commercial services, heating and cooling are typically some of the largest energy costs. Replacing an old HVAC system could reduce greatly reduce the amount of energy you use daily. If your existing HVAC system is more than 20 years old, it is probably running very inefficiently compared to today’s models.
Let’s break it down to decide what your best course of action is for your business’s HVAC:
Repair vs. a New HVAC System
The question of repair versus a new HVAC system is, of course, one that shouldn’t be taken lightly. In fact, there are several factors that need to be considered in order to make the right choice.
One of the most important considerations is this: assess the costs of repairing versus replacing. Sounds, simple, right? You are basically deciding which is the better financial option – repair or replacement.
Sometimes installing a new system can pay off financially in the long run (particularly when it comes to lower utility bills and fewer repair expenses). Still, sometimes it doesn’t make sense to have a new system installed. With a little TLC and expert HVAC commercial services, you may be able to get a few more years out of your current commercial HVAC system.
To decide your system’s fate, you need more data, such as the cost of your repair or replacement options. This is information your service provider can give you. As a general guideline, consider replacement if the equipment is beyond three-quarters of its life expectancy and repairs will cost more than a third of replacement. In other words, it’s probably not worth spending $700 to repair a 15-year-old furnace you could replace for $2,000.
