Is Your St. George Furnace Past its Useful Life?

How can you tell it’s time for a new furnace? Well, unless you have the tools and the training to go “under the hood,” it’s hard. Even if the issue at hand is repairable, it’s worth considering the age of your furnace. Is the cost of a repair more than half the cost of a new unit? If so, you’re probably better off looking at a replacement.

Heating and air conditioning are crucial to being comfortable in your home. You probably don’t realize just how important your HVAC system is until something breaks and you learn the hard way what it’s like to live without heating or air conditioning. If your system does break, then you are in for a miserable time and will want to get it fixed right away.

You should hire a professional HVAC company to come fix your system. Hopefully, you get some good news and learn that you only have a minor problem that a quick fix will take care of. But what if the professional comes back with bad news? What if you are told that your HVAC system is beyond repair and you need a new one?

These words are enough to cause a huge amount of stress for most people. Making repairs and replacing appliances in your home is always a big deal, and an entire HVAC system is a very big project. HVAC systems are large and intricate, so your first thought is probably something along the lines of, “There’s no way I can afford that.” While HVAC systems can be expensive, that doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t afford to replace yours.

So how much does a new HVAC system cost? Here are a couple of factors that will affect the cost of your new HVAC system:

  • The type and brand of system 
  • Size of your home 
  • If your ductwork is being replaced
  • How difficult your system is to replace

Type and Brand of the System:

Different brands cost different amounts. It’s the same as when you buy a car or a refrigerator. Some brands are better than others, but sadly, the best brands are the ones most likely to be out of your budget. Finding a good brand that is in your budget can be a challenge, depending on what your budget is. If you choose to go with a poor brand, be aware that it will probably require more maintenance throughout the years, which can be expensive. 

Size of Your Home:

How large your home is will also affect the cost of your new system. Larger homes need larger, more efficient systems and those systems are more expensive. If you live in a very large home, you can expect to pay more for your system than if you live in an average or smaller home.

If Your Ductwork is Being Replaced:

Unless your ductwork is in amazing condition, you should probably get that replaced as well. Obviously, replacing all the ductwork in your home is going to be costly and take a lot of time. If you are replacing the ductwork, then the cost for the project will go up. If all the ductwork in your home needs to be replaced, the process will take a few extra days to complete. 

How Difficult Your System is to Replace:

AC companies will probably charge you more if your HVAC system is in a hard-to-reach spot or a very small space. It will take more time and effort to replace systems that are difficult to get to. Every company will charge differently for this issue, so finding one that won’t overcharge is important. 

There are other factors that will affect the cost of this project, but these are some of the more important ones. 

So how much will it cost? 

Because there are so many factors that go into answering this question, and everybody’s answer will be different, we can’t give an exact number. However, you are probably looking at an entire system costing somewhere between $5,000 and $10,000. These numbers can vary, but if a company offers to give you your system for much less than $5,000, there is probably a sketchy reason why. 

Yes, this is a lot of money. If your system breaks, though, you probably won’t have much of a choice. Unless you want to go through the summer and winter months without air conditioning or heat, you will need to get a new system. 

When choosing a new system, make sure that you go through an HVAC company that you have researched and that you trust. There are probably a lot of HVAC companies in your area, so finding one that will take care of you shouldn’t be difficult. Don’t get too caught up in choosing the perfect company, however, because you won’t find a perfect company and you don’t want to spend too much time choosing between a few that are similar. Once you find a company you like, give them a call and have them look at your HVAC system. It may be a good idea to call a few different companies and get quotes from each. This can help you make a decision when you see how much each company will charge you. 

If a company gives you a really low estimate, then ask yourself why. Make sure that the company is licensed and has good insurance. You don’t want to go through a sketchy company. Before hiring a company, do your research and make sure that everything is official. 

You will be glad that you got a new HVAC system. If your previous system was really old and not very efficient, then you will be amazed at the difference a new system will make. Your home will be cooler or warmer (depending on the season) than ever before and you will be able to control the temperature easier and will be more comfortable year-round. 

Buying a new HVAC system is a big investment, but once you learn how amazing your home feels, you won’t regret making that investment. HVAC systems last for a long time, up to 20 years. If you live in your home for a really long time, you may end up replacing or repairing your HVAC system multiple times. Usually, with repairs and regular maintenance, one replacement should be enough to get you through the years ahead happily and at a good temperature.
