Replacing a furnace or air conditioning system is a significant expense for most households. Unfortunately, many people put off this purchase for many years because they simply don’t have the money to make the purchase. But old, outdated furnaces and air conditioning systems still cost you more money through higher energy bills due to poor efficiency on the units as well as the additional expense that repairs on old HVAC systems create.
Advantages of Replacing Your Old HVAC System
If your furnace or central air conditioning system is more than ten years old, your unit’s energy efficiency can’t compare to today’s models. The higher energy efficiency rating means that the HVAC system uses less energy which lowers your energy bills. When you also factor in that the average lifespan of a furnace or air conditioning system is between 10 to 15 years, you are already living on borrowed time.
One excellent option to consider is installing an electric heat pump. Not only are heat pumps extremely energy efficient, but they also serve as both a heating system and a cooling system, combining both systems into one unit. Although heat pumps are more expensive than replacing an individual heating or cooling system, it does cost less than replacing both of them. But if getting the money is an issue, there are some options available for Massachusetts residents.
