To Repair or to Replace Your HVAC? That Is the Question

AC Replacement Austin

Imagine turning your AC on for the first time in a little while and hearing a horrendous squeal. It sounds like the end of the world, and when you discover that instead, it is a terrible problem with your HVAC system, you’re not sure if you feel better or worse about it. 

What will it mean for you? Is it possible to get some little part of it fixed, or is this going to mean total replacement is required? At McCullough Heating & Air Conditioning, we know that there may have been an underlying issue for a while when your HVAC system shows symptoms that spell trouble. 

You may have noticed that your:

  • AC doesn’t turn on
  • AC runs constantly
  • AC runs, but your home isn’t getting cooler
  • Vents aren’t pushing out air
  • System emits screeching or rattling sounds when running
  • Power bill suddenly spiked

Keeping your home comfortable is a simple goal, but heating and cooling your interior spaces with high precision and efficiency takes a lot of technology and sophistication. 

It’s best to entrust all of that complexity to a professional.

HVAC Repair

McCullough Heating & Air Conditioning has been in the HVAC business in Austin since 1977. We are the residential HVAC specialists, and we know exactly how to get the job done if your HVAC system needs repair.

If your thermostat seems preoccupied with whether the temperature you’ve set is to be or not to be, you should call us. We’re the experts in determining whether your system just has one component that needs repair, you just need a refrigerant recharge, or it’s time for a whole new HVAC system. 

Whatever the case may be, our professional technicians are on time, our pricing is simple, and we know exactly what your system needs when it comes to considering HVAC repair.

HVAC Replacement

Making the decision to replace a whole system depends on many different factors. System age, quality, and degree of maintenance are the most important combination of factors that influence whether it’s time to replace or not. In our experience, if regular maintenance hasn’t been performed by a qualified technician, it’s almost like clockwork: you can expect to see signs of failure as early as year eight. In contrast, AC units that have had regular maintenance can last twice that long.

When it’s time for you to consider HVAC replacement, McCullough Heating & Air Conditioning’s professional techs can explain what’s causing your system to fail and give you options to make it right.

But when to replace and when to repair? We often find that customers who need more than two repairs a year would be better off investing in a whole new system. A new system is much more efficient. Additionally, it’s not going to nickel-and-dime you as the old one would.
