Getting a new HVAC system for your Las Vegas home is a major investment, and you need to take time to carefully consider your decision. Here are three big questions to ask before you make that investment.
How long will my current system last?
Remember, air conditioners are built to last around 10 years, perhaps two or three more with good maintenance. Furnaces and boilers can last 20 years or more. If your current system is still fairly early in its lifespan, you may be better off having it repaired instead of making an upgrade. However, if your system is close to the end of its lifespan and you start having issues with it, the better choice may be to start fresh with a new system.
How long will the new system take to pay for itself?
A new system will obviously cost some money up front, but it will also save you money on your utilities by improving energy efficiency. If you divide the cost of the new system by the monthly savings, you’ll know how long the system will take to pay for itself. In the HVAC business, we call this a “payback analysis.” For example, if a new unit costs $1000 to install but saves you an average of $50 a month on your utilities, it will pay for itself in 20 months.
Can I trust the HVAC contractor?
Again, a new HVAC system is a major investment, and you need to make sure that investment will be safe. Not every HVAC company is equally qualified to install your new system. Your best option is to choose an HVAC contractor who has been handpicked by the manufacturer to install their systems in homes in your area.
