Should I repair or replace my HVAC unit?

Whenever your A/C unit fails, most reputable air conditioning technicians will recommend that you replace your indoor air handler at the same time because the two units must be matched so that your new outdoor unit can work at maximum efficiency and MAINTAIN the warranty. Improperly matched units will shorten the life span of your new unit and invalidate the warranty. This is just one of the many pitfalls that need to be avoided when replacing a system. Do not make a serious mistake when buying a system. Consult a reputable professional.

How did you do?

1 to 10 points: Repair your system, it is your best value and least amount of risk.

11 to 19 points: Your decision. See below.

20 points and more: Replacement is the best economic decision, given energy costs and future repair costs.

What if I am between 11 and 19 points?

The questions you should be asking yourself to decide whether to repair or replace:

  • How do you live within the home – Lifestyle wants-needs?
  • Does anyone in the home suffer any conditions? Allergies or other?
  • Is saving energy important to you?
  • What do you like about your comfort system? Or would like to change?
  • What do you know about environmental refrigerants?

Customers With a NICE Experience

Barb N.

“I purchased my HVAC unit a year ago along with a Cozy Club maintenance plan. It's been running great and the customer service team is always quick to respond to questions. Today Rolando M. came by for the maintenance check and, as usual, he was neat, professional and maintained the COVID rules. He was also very nice, living up to the company name. I'm very happy with my experience with Nice.”

N. England.

“I can't speak highly enough of this company. I requested an appointment, and it was scheduled for the next day. The technician was polite, honest, and a pure delight to work with. He didn't try to overcharge or tell me to replace something I didn't need to. He made service recommendations that were in line with industry standard prices so I could make an informed decision as he went about his service visit. Would recommend and will be using them again in the future. ”

“My technician arrived promptly at our appointed hour. He repaired a dirty and non-working gas fireplace. In addition, he found a small gas leak on our furnace line. Overall, exceptional service and quality work. I highly recommend their HVAC service.”

Rona G.

“Very impressive company! Nice responded to my call for a heating issue on very short notice. My tech, was right on time, extremely polite, and very hardworking. Customer service and satisfaction are clearly a priority.”

Kenny D.

“They treat customers like a valuable asset, not like a number. Business the old-fashioned way, that will never go out of style.”

Lois S.

“Superb customer service. Before a service appointment, you receive a text message notification with photo of the tech that will be at your residence followed by a phone call. During a service appointment you'll updated and educated. If there is a concern, management will contact you promptly and follow up until issue resolved. Awesome and attentive team!!”
