Best Time to Replace Your Air Conditioning and Heating System

If you live in Houston, TX or the surrounding areas then you know that life without air conditioning and heating will leave you miserable. Taking a proactive stance and replacing your HVAC system before it breaks down is key to maintaining comfort in your home or business.

According to, you should consider replacing your air conditioning and heating system if:

Your heat pump or air conditioner is more than 10 years old.

Consider replacing it with a unit that has earned the ENERGY STAR label. Installed correctly, these high-efficiency units can save up to 20 percent on heating and cooling costs.

Your furnace or boiler is more than 15 years old.

Consider replacing with an ENERGY STAR qualified furnace, which is 15% more efficient than a conventional furnace. If you have a boiler, consider replacing with an ENERGY STAR qualified boiler that is 5% more efficient than a new, standard model.

Your equipment needs frequent repairs and your energy bills are going up.

Your cooling or heating equipment my have become less efficient.

In addition to the above listed reasons for replacement, consideration as to what time of the year you decide to replace your air conditioning and heating system can be beneficial as well. In the Houston area, the summer months are when HVAC services are in high demand and this increase in demand leads to higher prices. Well, the opposite is true of the Houston area winter months. Most Houston area HVAC contractors experience “slow months” from October to March. You are way more likely to get a better deal in these months than any other time of the year.
