Should You Repair or Replace Your HVAC System?

We understand that investing in HVAC can be a substantial financial commitment. That’s why it’s crucial to hire a licensed and professional HVAC company that offers:

Do You Need to Repair or Replace Your HVAC System?

Many people, including other contractors, employ various methods to address this critical question, often influenced by personal opinions or other irrelevant factors. 

At Custom Comfort ClimateCare we prioritize data, consistency, and objectivity. We firmly believe that investing in repairs for older systems often leads to later regrets. 

Therefore, our method for advising whether to repair or replace your system is based on an industry-recognized formula:

The $5,000 Rule

If the cost of necessary repairs (in dollars) multiplied by the age of the system (in years) exceeds $5,000, we recommend considering an HVAC replacement rather than repair.
