With the coming of autumn comes cooler temperatures and a reduced need for your HVAC system. We’ve probably got a few hot days left in the year, and winter nights mean increased heating needs, but for now, the transitional season and mild temperatures in Southern California mean that most of us can turn off our HVAC systems without any serious issues.
That makes this an excellent time to give your heating and air conditioning system a thorough going-over, and deciding whether or not to replace it. If it’s running fine, the answer is probably “no.” But if there’s a problem requiring repairs, you’ll need to make a hard choice: do you pay for the repair job or replace the system entirely? Only you can answer that question, since it depends on the specifics of your HVAC system. There are a few guidelines which you can follow to help make that decision.
