Homeowner Tips – Advice on HVAC Repairs and Replacements


Leading Massachusetts HVAC and plumbing company offers advice on the best timing for HVAC repair and replacement

WOBURN, Massachusetts – Addario’s Plumbing Heating Cooling & Electrical, a leading HVAC and plumbing company serving Woburn, Massachusetts and surrounding counties since 1998, is offering advice to Boston area homeowners on the proper time to replace or repair existing HVAC systems.

“The heat this summer in the Boston area and around Massachusetts can put serious stress on a home’s HVAC system, especially on older units that may have been in a home for a long time,” said Steven Addario Jr., president and owner of Addario’s. “While most HVAC systems can be repaired without substantial investment from a homeowner, if breakdowns are a consistent problem, it may be time to think about replacing the unit with a more efficient model.”

Addario’s offers the following advice for homeowners to help determine if repairing or replacement is the best option for an existing HVAC system:

  • HVAC System Age – If the HVAC system is 10 years old or less, the best option is to contact a licensed service technician for a repair. If the system is more than 10 years old and is consistently breaking down, replacement is the better option, especially if you factor in the cost of ongoing repairs to the existing system.
  • Cost Savings – If you are noticing that your energy bills continue to rise month over month and year over year, the energy cost savings with a new HVAC system will help pay for a replacement quickly over time. In addition, many newer HVAC systems with an ENERGY STAR rating may include tax credits and incentives that can offset the cost of replacement versus repair.
  • Comfort Level and Air Quality – If your existing HVAC system is consistently breaking down or cools your home unevenly, repairs can be done to maintain your system, but the best option is for a replacement HVAC system. In addition to offering proper cooling for your whole home, a new HVAC system can also improve the overall air quality in your home through better control of indoor temperatures and humidity, helping to reduce mold and mildew growth.

The HVAC experts at Addario’s have helped numerous Woburn and Boston area residents upgrade current HVAC systems to newer, more efficient models that can save money and cool more effectively while also offering repairs to existing HVAC brands to help extend their effectiveness.
