Learn from the commercial services pros if it’s time to replace your rooftop HVAC unit.

Lifespan of Rooftop HVAC Unit

Is it time to get professional commercial services for your rooftop HVAC? As cold weather taxes aging air-conditioning systems, the decision whether to repair an older rooftop unit or replace it with a newer high efficiency system may loom large on some commercial property owners’ minds. Keep reading for tips from the commercial services pros to help you make a sound decision.

Most commercial HVAC products are designed for a life expectancy of 15 to 20 years. However, factors beyond the control of the original equipment manufacturer dictate the actual reliability and cost effectiveness of operating the equipment during its useful life period. That’s why it’s important to have a commercial and industrial service professional carefully examine each piece of equipment before reaching a decision to repair or replace a system.

Studying current operating expenses as well as projected repair and operating expenses better equips you to make the decision to repair or replace existing equipment. Compare these expenses to the operating costs of new, high-efficiency equipment. In many cases, if your equipment is aged, new high-efficiency replacements will provide significant utility savings that can be factored as a “payback” in a decision to replace.

Also, as you make your decision to repair or replace, consider applicable utility rebates for the installation of high-efficiency equipment. Your local utility provider can provide rebate information that applies to your area.
