It’s that time of year again. Summer is upon us, temperatures are rising and sweat will once again become our worst enemy. Like many homeowners this time of year, you probably turned on your air conditioner only to realize nothing happened. Ugh. We get it! 

All of us here at BuyAirDirect talk to customers each and every day in the same situation asking the same million-dollar question…

“Should I replace or repair my broken HVAC unit?” 

BuyAirDirect is here to help. In this short video, we will talk about three questions you should ask yourself when you find out your HVAC unit is kaput. 

Question #1 – How old is your unit? 

The Department of Energy recommends replacing your HVAC system every 10 years. After 10 years, the daily grind on an older system makes it inefficient. New HVAC systems now on the market are built with energy-saving technology that will save you lots of money in the long run by reducing the monthly cost of your utility bill. The older your system is, the less efficient it is. If your AC system is over 10 years old, it’s probably time to replace it. 

#2 – How much money have you already invested in your unit? 

As your HVAC system ages, your repair costs increase. Minor problems with older units can cost anywhere from $400-$500 each time you call an HVAC professional out to your home to make repairs. When you begin paying for repairs several times a year, it’s time to stop wasting your money and begin thinking about purchasing a new unit. 

#3 – Will you be selling your home now or in the future? 

One of the top three things new homebuyers look for when purchasing a home is the condition and age of the HVAC system. If your unit is over 10 years old, investing in a new unit is a great selling point for potential homebuyers. And that’s money well spent to get top dollar for your home when you decide to sell. 

So, have you decided to…

A: Repair your broken HVAC unit? or

B: Replace your unit?

If your answer is B, then let BuyAirDirecthelp you find a new unit that’s right for your home and your budget.
