When Is the Right Time to Buy a New Heating or Cooling HVAC System?

At some point, older systems must be replaced. Their energy efficiency drops over time and they start to encounter repair issues – you’ll reach a place where you’re better off paying installation costs for a new HVAC system rather than forking over money time and time again to make repairs to your furnace, heat pump, boiler, or air conditioner. Because HVAC replacement is a major home improvement project and the average cost is significant, it helps to get the most years of life from the current system before new heating or air conditioner installation.

While you try and extend the life of your heating system or cooling system as long as you can, you need to walk a fine line. While HVAC installation costs are far higher than repairs, your existing system is going to reach a point where it no longer makes financial sense to keep repairing it. How do you know when you arrive at this point? Here are some signs that can tell you it’s time for a new air conditioner or heater.

  • The air-source heat pump or air conditioners are 10 to 12 years old.
  • The geothermal heat pump is 20 years old or older.
  • The furnace or boiler is 15 to 20 years old.
  • Your utility bills increase in average cost without a clear cause.
  • You’ve been making more and more repairs to the heating and cooling system over the past few seasons.
  • The heating and cooling system just doesn’t offer the system efficiency needed to meet heating cooling demands in the home.
  • You’ve added square foot area to your home and the current system isn’t big enough to manage its heating cooling needs.
  • The heater or air conditioning unit turns on and turns off soon after.
  • You suffer from poor air quality inside the house.

HVAC Installation Costs for a New Heating Unit or AC Unit

If you’re curious about the HVAC installation costs for replacing your heating and AC unit, don’t look up the average cost of this project. There are too many variable cost factors that are unique to any situation for homeowners to find an accurate price online or by a quick phone call.

If you want to find out the total cost for HVAC installation in your home, reach out to trusted HVAC contractors to request an in home estimate. Depending on the HVAC contractors you choose, you may receive a free estimate or there may be a small charge for the work needed to size the new HVAC unit.

If increased efficiency is a priority and you want to minimize energy use, it’s best to go ahead and have new heating equipmand and a new air conditioning system installed at the same time. Why do HVAC installation this way? By removing the old heater and AC unit and installing two new systems, the HVAC technician can match both units for optimal energy efficient performance.

If you replace these units through separate HVAC installation, there’s no guarantee they can be matched and efficiency could be lower than what it should, no matter the SEER rating or AFUE percentage listed for the system. A matched HVAC system is going to deliver better air quality, lower cooling costs, and lower installation costs versus replacing the units one at a time.

HVAC system cost is higher with a matched system HVAC installation versus installing a single heating cooling unit, as you’re buying two separate pieces of equipment, whether that be an AC unit and furnace, a heat pump and air handler, or some other system configuration. The actual HVAC system cost will depend on the capacity needed for the square foot area and heating load of the house, efficiency ratings, and other features.

Installation costs will involve work done by a licensed HVAC technician to remove the old HVAC system and install the new one. Your home may need additional work done so that the new unit can perform at peak efficiency. If using the existing ductwork, it may be necessary to seal air leaks, for example.

When you get an estimate for installation costs, the total will include all these cost factors. Homeowners who wish to install new air purifiers with their new air conditioners or other air quality equipment to work with the heating cooling systems will have additional expenses. Depending on the energy efficient performance rating of your new unit, you may be able to receive tax credits that cover some of the HVAC replacement cost.
