Why consider a new HVAC system now?
There are still tax credits for weatherization and energy efficient HVAC systems available. Today’s HVAC systems are more efficient than ever before. Tax credits used to be larger and the government has said they would end in the past, yet they keep extending them. This years tax credits are available to assist paying for weatherization and a new HAVC system. One Call is an HVAC installer in the southern region of the greater Atlanta Georgia area that will guide you to maximizing your opportunity. Also, our 30 years of experience will pay off for you when you have us install a new HVAC system. How? Getting the most energy efficient HVAC system possible along with weatherization, especially for your attic, can more than pay for the cost of the new system over that 10 to 20 year period. Skimping now will cost you much more in years to come. If your current HVAC system was installed before 2006 and you haven’t paid special attention to the weatherization of your attic, you will likely spend enough extra in the next 5 years on energy to pay for about 50% of the cost of a new HVAC system.
Should You Repair or Replace Your HVAC System?
Tax credits and easy-to-qualify-for Financing should make replacement an easy choice. If your primary consideration is financial I would suggest you look at your total cost of replacement and operation over the next 2 decades. First, know that HVAC systems built after 2006 can be up to 60% more efficient. Second, most HVAC systems have a warranty of 5 to 10 years, that will cover the cost of the parts, if the HVAC system was properly maintained and had regular tune-ups. This may be a bad time, but someone needs to say keeping your system maintained will make it last longer and cost less to operate. And, oh yes, not having regular maintenance will void your warranty!
If you just happen to be reading this, in order to be prepared – please make sure you have an HVAC maintenance plan. If you decide to repair the current problem and have the regular HVAC tune-up, those new parts and labor to replace them will be guaranteed for the next 5 years over and above the warranty.
HVAC Installation Cost
One of the most popular searches for “HVAC Installation”, is costs. Most HVAC installers don’t like to mention costs on their website and therefore won’t show up in your online search.
A few websites will sell you the equipment and only quote the price for the equipment. These websites often will not quote prices for individual components, re-design or the labor to install. Simply replacing the components with similar parts will ensure you are paying more for energy over the next 20 years which will reduce any potential savings. It will likely cost you more in the long run.
There is no simple answer about replacing your HVAC system. All the components come separately and must be designed to fit properly. It is not as simple as replacing the old with the same size. The components are only part of the cost. The cost to replace an HVAC system will depend on many factors such as: the size of the home (some homes have more than one HVAC unit), the quality of the replacement HVAC system and the energy efficiency of the home. Today’s higher efficiency HVAC systems need to be balanced with the energy efficiency of the home.
The first consideration you need to be able to make is financial. Are you able and willing to invest more now, in order to save even more over the years to come? If so, then you can realistically examine the energy efficiency of: the home, HVAC unit and air ducts. If not, then you may be limited to the quality and efficiency of the replacement HVAC unit alone.
Completing an energy audit for your home may be the best foundation to a long-term savings plan. Homes that can control the energy used will benefit from a smaller HVAC system. Smaller HVAC systems are also more efficient because the ducts in these systems are significantly smaller than traditional systems and there is less surface area for energy loss. Sealed and insulated ducts will help you save even more. Imagine saving 60% or more on utility costs over the next 20 years.
