Repairing Your Old HVAC Vs. Buying A New One: Which Is Cheaper?

Repairing AC vs. Buying New One

HVAC systems invariably grow old, and as they do, their efficiency and effectiveness taper off. While there is much to be said for maintaining and even repairing an aging HVAC system, there comes a point where it is simply better to install a wholly new system than to continue trying to repair the old one.

The Benefits of a New HVAC System

Installing a new HVAC system can have a number of advantages over repairing an old one, such as:

Improved Energy Efficiency

We live in a world where energy is costly, not only in terms of money but also in terms of its impact on the environment. Energy-efficient HVAC systems are therefore a must-have.

If your system is old, there’s a good chance that it was not designed with energy efficiency in mind. Modern HVAC systems, by contrast, use advanced technologies such as variable speed drives that help them consume less energy while providing the same, if not better, climate control functionality. 

Reduced Maintenance Costs

Aside from saving you money on your utility bills, a new energy-efficient HVAC system can also help you save money in the long term by reducing the amount you need to spend on repairs and maintenance.

A new and functional HVAC system will be less prone to breakdowns and will not require repairs nearly as often. A new system is more stable and will significantly reduce the risk of unexpected malfunctions. Modern machines are built to be more reliable and use more durable materials than older machines. They also come with extended warranties, which will provide you with added peace of mind.

Better Overall Operation

Old HVAC systems deteriorate as they age, despite being well-maintained. They tend to grow louder and less effective overall due to worn-out components and outdated technologies, which can interfere with the peace and quiet of your home.

New HVAC systems will operate silently and also deliver superior air quality over old systems that may not be operating as effectively as they used to. Generally speaking, a new HVAC system will provide a healthier living environment due to improved air quality, noise reduction, and more reliable and predictable climate control.

Trane Is The Name Of The Game

Trane HVAC systems are renowned for their high quality and reliability. At Chapman Air & Heat, we supply a range of state-of-the-art Trane air filtration systems, thermostats, air handling humidity control products, and more.

Trane places a lot of emphasis on energy efficiency, which is why we are proud to be a distributor of their technologies. Their HVAC systems feature energy-saving innovations such as variable speed motors, two-stage compressors, and a range of intelligent controls that all contribute to a less energy-intensive solution. This translates to lower utility bills and a reduced carbon footprint for Trane product users.

The innovative technologies that Trane invests in also provide superior indoor air quality and comfort. For example, the Trane CleanEffectsTM air filtration system captures airborne particles as small as 0.1 microns in size, compared to standard filters that only catch particles ranging between 0.3 microns and 10 microns in size.

This means that Trane outperforms most other air filtration units on the market. It can remove up to 99.9% of most allergens, including dust, mites, mildew, fungus, lint, and even tobacco smoke. Furthermore, this innovative system doesn’t require replacement filters. All that is needed is periodic rinsing or vacuuming of the filters that it comes with. It is also extremely quiet.

Trane’s interactive thermostat touchscreen interfaces are also renowned throughout the industry for being intuitive and capable of integrating with smart home systems.
