Should You Repair or Replace Your HVAC Unit?

Dec 30, 2022

Dealing with constant HVAC issues can be incredibly frustrating, but it can also be hard for homeowners and business owners to know if it’s time to just get a completely new system or to opt for a repair.

How to decide if you should replace your HVAC unit

While HVAC systems are complicated and you should likely contact an Orlando HVAC company, here are some factors to consider.

The size of your home

It’s important to keep in mind that the size of your home will be a factor in how your unit is performing. If you have rooms or sections of your home that aren’t heating or cooling like you would expect, it’s likely that a new
