Ring in the New Year with a New Carrier System

 In Products & Equipment, System Repair

There are many things to bring with you into the New Year, including resolutions, new ideas and the best memories from the year before. One thing you might not want to bring with you into 2022, however, is the stress of an old HVAC system that’s barely working. Because getting a new system is a big investment, it can be hard to know when it’s time to replace it entirely versus just paying for repairs. Not sure quite where to start? When choosing a new unit, you’ll want to select one that is smart, energy-efficient and built to last. Carrier brand units have proven to be the gold standard in home comfort for decades. If you’re thinking it’s time to say goodbye to your old HVAC unit, the new year is the perfect time to invest in a new Carrier system for your home.

How Can I Tell When My HVAC Needs Replacing?

If your HVAC system hasn’t been working properly for a while, that might be your first clue that it’s time to replace it with a new Carrier system. A unit that’s past its prime might run less efficiently, make weird sounds or cause your energy bill to spike. A good rule of thumb is to consider replacing your unit if the cost of repairs is more than half of your unit’s total worth. At that point, purchasing a new system is much more cost-effective.

Other factors to consider include the age of your system and whether it still falls under any kind of warranty. If it does, that warranty can help soften the cost of repairs. If it’s too old for any warranty coverage, a new Carrier system may be a better option. Click here for more information about when to replace versus repair your HVAC system. It’s also a good idea to book an inspection with Barineau Heating & Air Conditioning if you’re unsure where your unit stands. We can help you find the most cost-effective option for you and your home.

What Are the Benefits to Investing in a New HVAC System?

While the cost of a new HVAC system is certainly an investment, it’s going to save you money in the long term. That’s because older and out-of-repair systems take more energy to run, costing you more and more money each year. Plus, newer systems, such as a new Carrier system, are designed with energy-efficient technology designed to save you money.

In addition, replacing (and most likely, upgrading) your existing HVAC to a new Carrier system can increase the value of your home. If you’re looking to sell or even rent any time in the near future, having a new and up-to-date system is a big selling point in your favor, particularly in today’s competitive market. That’s just one reason why it’s important to choose your new unit carefully.

Are All HVAC Units Created Equal?

Because an HVAC system is a big investment, you’ll want to choose your new unit carefully. Carrier units have a number of features that set them apart, including:

Infinity® System

This two-stage heat pump allows you to set up eight different temperature zones within your home, so everyone feels comfortable.
