REPAIR OR REPLACE

Let our experts help you make the right choice

Deciding whether to repair or replace an air conditioner, furnace or heat pump is one of the most important choices you'll make.

Is it time to replace your system?
If you have a heating and cooling unit that's out of warranty or outdated, making costly repairs doesn’t make sense. In fact, a more efficient model can lower your yearly energy costs.

PRO TIP
Ask yourself these 3 questions
  1. How old is your unit? Air conditioners and heat pumps tend to have a lifespan of 10-12 years. Furnaces usually last 15-20 years. If your system is older, it's probably time to replace your system.
  2. Are your energy bills too high? Older systems are usually less efficient than newer systems. Replacing your current heating and cooling system with a more efficient system can help lower your utility bills.
  3. Are you ready to make an investement? Installing a new system costs more upfront, but it can provide long-term savings. Our financing options can make the investment manageable for any income.
