The Basics of HVAC System Replacement

No HVAC system can last forever. If it’s time to replace your heating or air conditioning system, understanding the steps involved and how to make the right choice when selecting your new system can make this process easier. A professional comfort advisor can help you every step of the way during HVAC replacement in Boston, allowing you to enjoy efficient heating and cooling and a comfortable home more quickly.

Opting for Replacement

In most cases, HVAC replacement is prompted by a serious breakdown of your furnace or air conditioning that affects your home comfort. When the cost of repairing your HVAC system is comparable to that of installing a new system, or you know your current appliances are reaching the end of their functional lifetime, replacement may be the best solution to such a problem. However, even if your HVAC system is functioning reasonably well, replacing it can offer benefits if the system is more than a decade old. Installing a new system can provide greater efficiency when it comes to heating and cooling, cutting your bills over the long term and making up for the cost of replacement.

Choosing a New System

The most important decision you will make when replacing your HVAC system is your choice of new appliance. In many cases, the simplest option is to replace your current HVAC system with a newer model of the same type. This solution means you’ll enjoy a faster, easier installation while still gaining the benefits of improved efficiency that comes with an upgraded model. Alternatively, you may want to consider switching to a different type of heating or cooling system, such as a heat pump or a gas furnace, which can help you save money and reduce the impact of your lifestyle on the environment. Regardless of the system you choose, you’ll need to ensure it is sized properly for your home. Choosing a furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump without the proper capacity will reduce the system’s efficiency and affect your long-term savings. Furthermore, always select a system with the greatest efficiency you can afford. Although you may be spending more upfront, you’ll enjoy greater savings over the long term and better indoor comfort with a more efficient system. Your HVAC comfort advisor can provide you with the information you need to select a heater or air conditioner with the right capacity and efficiency for your needs.
