When is the right time to replace your heating and cooling system? While there is no hard-and-fast rule, there are some important considerations to keep in mind when making a decision.
Consider the 50% rule: When the cost of repairs approaches 50% of the value of your heating or cooling system, it’s generally time to replace the system.
If your unit is nearing the average life expectancy, you’ll need to weigh the repair cost against the possibility that more repairs or replacement may be needed in the coming year.
Research shows that water heating, home heating and air conditioning account for more than 50% of household energy use.

If there have been upgrades made to your home that improve its insulation and energy efficiency (new windows, doors, insulation, roofing, sealing, etc.), then your current unit may actually be oversized or undersized for your needs. Your AirEase dealer can make sure your system is built and sized for peak performance.
Are you happy with your current system? Your old heating and cooling system can be responsible for things like poor indoor air quality, noise, temperature swings, and hot or cold spots throughout the house.
Newer systems have advanced technologies built in that precisely heat and cool your home, while keeping operating sounds, pollutants and energy costs at a minimum.
