New HVAC unit

This is our downstairs HVAC unit. It is 15 years old. It is ginormous, noisy, and unreliable. In fact, we have had our HVAC unit repaired 3 times in the last 7 months. 

Old Unit 

The good news is that our warranty company decided that it was more cost effective to replace our unit instead of repairing it. This week our new downstairs HVAC unit was installed! It's even bigger than our previous unit, but it's quieter (which our neighbors will appreciate) and more energy efficient. Tal and I are looking forward to having more reliable heating and cooling in our house, as well as saving more money on energy costs!

It was definitely time for that unit to be replaced. Generally, I use the frequency with which I have to do repairs to indicate when it's time to replace anything I own. After a while it becomes too expensive to keep fixing the same piece of equipment. I'm glad that your warranty company took that approach as well. The improved efficiency will be better for your budget.

I agree, it was due time to have that HVAC unit replaced and I am happy to hear that some of your troubles have been solved since you received the upgrade. I remember my old unit switching on, it was the only thing that could be heard. So annoying! It is amazing how much I put up with. I am so glad I got a new model as well.

The old one was certainly on its last breath, lucky for you the warranty company agreed it was more cost effective to replace it with a new one versus repairing it yet again. A new unit can mean a world of difference in operation cost and, as you pointed out, noise reduction. Congrats on the new unit, enjoy!

My husband and I have been needing to replace ours now for years. I think this post inspired us to finally go out and get a new one. They are so darn expensive but I guess we can not live without them especially with this humidity we have here in Georgia. Thank you for this post I really needed it.
