After about 16 – 20 years, it’s likely time to replace your home comfort system. This is the typical lifespan of furnaces and air conditioning units made today, so even if you have a year or two to go, reach out to the heating & cooling replacement specialists at Arthur’s Air Conditioning & Heating of Norman, Oklahoma.
When your air conditioning or furnace ages, there will be parts that start failing that need repair and replacement. As soon as the heating or cooling unit begins to break down, you will be paying for service calls and labor, on top of parts that need to be repaired. These costs add up over time, so you will need to factor in costs over the long run. If the repairs become a significant percentage of what the new system will cost, making the switch to a full ac system replacement or furnace replacement will be a more financially sound decision.
Older systems are not as energy-efficient as newer ones. You will be wasting energy and paying more on your heating bills the longer you have the furnace. High-efficiency heating or cooling units can pay off in a large way when it comes to energy savings over time.
