Stay or Go? A decision making guide

You know winter is here with a vengeance in Colorado, and inevitably some of you are going to have this experience. You wake up in the morning with the wind howling off the Front Range. You look at your thermostat that is set at 68 degrees and it says it’s only 62 degrees.

You know what that means, it’s time to contact us, your trusted HVAC professional at Climate Control. And then you wonder, how many times have you called us in the last year or two?

There’s no question that at some point having us repair that old heating system yet again just doesn’t make any sense. Ten is a good number to keep in mind. If your HVAC system is more than 10 years old, a new system will be much more efficient and could actually reduce your monthly energy bill. Do you realize heating and cooling typically accounts for 40% of energy usage in the home? That means there is a potential to save a lot of money.

The first step is to call Climate Control so we can do an energy assessment on your your home. This can make sure any problem you’re having isn’t caused by something like air leaks or other factors not related to your HVAC unit.

We are knowledgeable about local utilities that may subsidize the costs of energy efficiency assessments and any government rebates or discounts that may be available.

Once the assessment is complete, our heating and cooling system replacement professional will sit down with you and talk about your current system and whether it’s time to consider replacing it.

Remember, there are a lot of factors that determine heating and cooling efficiency. In this case size does matter because if the system is not properly sized, it can cause higher energy bills and early system failure. Only a heating and cooling expert can determine the right choice for your home after measuring the home, evaluating the construction, and taking into account the direction the property is facing. Because of that phone estimates are not a good idea for anyone.

Remember, Climate Control has been serving home and business owners of Aspen and Vail and the surrounding area of the Western Slope since 1956. We know the local climate extremes and what you need to make your home or business comfortable year round.

Our trusted HVAC professional can help you crunch the numbers using proper factors needed to ensure your 100% satisfaction—guaranteed. The cost of a new HVAC unit compared to the projected cost of repairs, and any reduction you might see on your monthly utility bill are all factors taken into account on this important decision.

Any new system is going to be a major investment, but it’s no different than anything else. If your car is 10 years old and the transmission goes out, chances are you’re not going to spend $2,000 to $3,000 dollars to repair it. Instead you’re going to make a major investment in a new car.

And the feeling of waking up on a frigid Colorado morning and your house is nice and warm—PRICELESS!
