Things to Consider

Should it be a repair or a replacement? – If the HVAC unit is less than 10 years old but has some minor issues a repair may need to happen instead of a replacement.
Does your home need heating and or cooling – The answer for berks county residents is yes. Other areas like California or Florida likely do not need heating.
Are the HVAC units energy-efficient? – If your answer is, “no” consider a renovation. If your system is too or small for your home, or even too old an energy-efficient system can appreciate the home.
Insulation – older insulation is easy to fix with low-risk investments. New insulation is a cheaper upgrade that brings a return and keeps your home insulated reducing your demand on an HVAC system.
Furnace/Boiler – Most furnaces last for 15 years with proper maintenance. Instead of constantly trying to repair a furnace, invest in a new one. A new furnace will conserve energy while improving the efficiency of your heating system.
