Is your HVAC system on the fritz? Whether you decide to add, replace, or maintain your HVAC system, the tips below are to help you keep comfortable and save money when it comes to your home. When deciding if it is time to upgrade your HVAC system ask yourself these three questions:

  • Is your HVAC system over 15 years old?
  • Does your HVAC system run for extended periods of time?
  • Is your utility bill more than it should be?

If yes is your answer to any of these three questions, don’t panic! While upgrading your old HVAC system might be a significant investment, it could save you more money in the long run and help to heat and cool your home more efficiently. Fact: Did you know that heating and cooling accounts for more than 40 percent of your annual utility bill?
