Repair or Replace?

Is it time to replace your furnace and/or air conditioner? 

Should you repair or replace? This is a big decision. Let’s try to repair your old system if it makes sense. But is it wise to invest more money in the old system? Considering the new technology available, is this your opportunity to upgrade your comfort and efficiency?

What should you do? Most important, you need an expert diagnosis and an honest opinion. You need Precision Comfort Systems. When we visit your home to repair your failed system, it may come as a surprise that our primary goal is not to profit from your poor luck. Our experience has taught us that a long-term relationship is much more valuable than a one-time, aggressive sale.

With Precision Comfort, here’s what to expect. Our trained technicians will take the time to properly diagnose the problem in an effort to change or repair the (hopefully) single, faulty part. If we gain your respect on this repair, we trust you will call us again. But a furnace, heat pump or air conditioner are complicated mechanical devices and like all machines, they always, eventually break. We will be honest. If it’s time, we may need to give up on the old clunker and invest in a new high efficiency system.

When should I replace my furnace? (or air conditioner)

Here is a very rough rule of thumb. If your system’s age is 10 years or less, let’s fix it and also discover what caused the problem. An older, 10 to 15-year system is still a good candidate for repairs, but if safety is a concern or the problem is major, we may recommend replacement.

Systems over 15 years old and needing more than a few hundred dollars in repair, are for replacement. Many times, 15 to 20-year-old technology cannot compete with the new technology and the potential energy savings will help make this an easier decision.

And while we’re at it, Precision Comfort Systems will take the time necessary to look over your home to determine if there are other comfort related issues needing addressed. Let’s finally fix those comfort and high energy use problems that are usually overlooked by other contractors.

What’s the cost of a new furnace or air conditioner?

We understand that you may be surprised by the unforeseen expense of a heating and air conditioning replacement. The good news is, this investment can turn into significant energy savings to help offset the initial cost. We have every price range you can consider and we will not force you into any decisions. It is our responsibility and our promise that we will provide you with the options that make sense for your family.

Precision Comfort Systems also has very easy financing with on-line approval! See our financing information here.
