There are so many reasons to upgrade your HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) that we don’t have the time – or energy – to list them here. Speaking of energy, an HVAC upgrade will save energy and lower heating and cooling costs, too.
“Jeff Wilson replaced his HVAC system for the same reason most homeowners do: It broke,” says HGTV. He got three bids to replace the system, from $3,500 to $12,000 (And that was 2005!). His old unit was 80% energy efficient. A midrange unit with 90% efficiency was about $4,200. A high-end, 97%-energy efficiency unit would cost $5,800; that’s the cost of a midrange unit in 2017.
When looking at an HVAC upgrade, you have to factor in the future.
If It Ain’t Broke, Fix It Anyway
Why wait until it’s 90° in the shade here in North Houston, then call your HVAC professionals with sweat dripping off your brow? Plus, you’ll pay extra for emergency service. Our company will give you an honest appraisal of your current system. We’ll also tell you if it’s worth it, based on your anticipated length of time at your residence. It might be better to keep Old Faithful around a few more years.
Our friend Jeff chose the high-end unit and selected the size that would accommodate the square footage of his home now, but he also wanted a powerful enough system that could accommodate his plans to renovate – add square footage – within the next two years. The energy savings he would realize, including the up-front cost, would achieve a financial payback within five years.
