The Three Strikes Rule
With baseball season officially underway in Ohio, it’s a great time to look at the Three Strikes Rule for replacing your heating and cooling system. What is the Three Strikes Rule? According to our HVAC experts, if you have had to make three or more repairs to your furnace and air conditioner within the last year, it’s time to consider replacing your system. Here are just a few of the reasons why:
With every repair, the cost of service for your old furnace and air conditioner is going to add up. While this money is only going into helping your old system make it through another year, with more repairs likely to be needed in the future, you could invest it into something new. A new furnace and air conditioner will save you money in the long run with better energy efficiency and warranties. A new air conditioner or heat pump will also keep you from having to pay for costly Freon refills. Not only is Freon expensive here in Ohio, this is the case all over the country.
Having your air conditioner and furnace repaired costs you more than just money. In the midst of your busy life, making time for service appointments could cost you valuable time. This time will only add up with each repair, especially if you have to wait hours, or even days, for service during a heat wave. Having a new furnace and air conditioner installed can take only one day, and will keep you from having to worry about time spent on future repairs.
All Around Comfort
When considering the options of purchasing a new heating and cooling system or hanging on to your old one, consider this: Are the furnace and air conditioner you currently have actually keeping your family comfortable? During an in-home estimate, our comfort consultants will work hard to make sure that the new furnace and air conditioner you choose are sized correctly for your home in order to fit your needs.
Peace Of Mind
When your existing furnace and air conditioner are growing old, it’s common to begin hoping that they will make it through “just one more year” with each repair needed. A new heating and cooling system will bring you peace of mind that your home will stay comfortable for years to come.
