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
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.
