Most homeowners don’t really pay much attention to their heating and air conditioning system until such time that it breaks down. Statistics have proven that more than 50% of consumers who have purchased an HVAC system in the past two years here in the United States, have done so because their existing system failed. With that said, the professionals here at M&A HVAC Services, LLC want to share with all our clients and viewers some important facts every homeowner should know about their HVAC system.
Homeowners are typically concerned about the long-term dependability and reliability of their HVAC system. Further, the operating costs affiliated with the proper functioning and maintenance of an HVAC system also cause much concern. Homeowners want to be certain that their HVAC system is always able to provide the desired temperatures needed in their homes season after season.
Don’t Wait – Pay Attention From the Start
Your HVAC system is truly one of the most costly investments you will make as a homeowner. It’s important to recognize the significant role your HVAC system plays and how important it is to your home and family. Though performing home improvement projects is more times than not at the top of every homeowners list, your HVAC system makes a greater difference in your home’s comfort and safety. Factually, your HVAC system is accountable for nearly 40-50% of your home’s annual energy costs. In addition, it is the most expensive appliance you will purchase and own and uses more energy than the combined usage of all your other home appliances.
The average age of an HVAC system is approximately 12 to 14 years, but the lifespan could range anywhere from 5 years to more than 25 years. The age of your system is not the primary concern, but rather the run time of your system is. Very much like your vehicle you drive, it is not how old the vehicle is but rather how many miles it has on it. Such is the case with your HVAC system. What matters most is how much you choose to run your HVAC system that will determine the length of its remaining lifespan. If you see signs or are having ongoing HVAC issues don’t ignore them.
Choose your Contractor/Installer/Service Provider Wisely
Researching and choosing the right contractor will undoubtedly lead to your satisfaction and ease of choice when it comes time to select the HVAC system to buy. As a rule of thumb, if you find satisfaction in your contractor/installer, rest assured you will find satisfaction in the system they recommend and ultimately install. So taking the appropriate time to find the ideal contractor/installer is important to the entire process. With that said, that is where the experts here at M&A HVAC Services, LLC come in. Our licensed and certified technicians look forward to every opportunity to provide you with all your HVAC product and service needs.
Always Plan Ahead for Your HVAC System Replacement Cost
The average replacement cost of an HVAC system is between $7500 and $8500 but outside of the average, a system could be less than $6000 and even more than $15,000 depending upon the size of the system and whether or not it is a full system replacement or a partial one. Whatever the case, it is always practical and wise to plan ahead and save money in advance rather than scurrying about to afford the cost when your system finally fails and perhaps finding yourself without the resources needed.
