Don’t feel bad if it’s time to replace your air ventilation system. Even the best systems have an expected “shelf life” and eventually will become more trouble than they’re worth. The key is identifying when it’s time to replace the system versus just repairing it. Some signs include odd noises, dust buildup, unusual smells, or other indicators of poor air quality. More importantly, you want to consider the age of the equipment, how often you’re having to repair the system and how much these repairs cost each time, and unusual hikes in your energy bill which may indicate the system is struggling, drawing plenty of power, all to not accomplish the job of keeping your home well-ventilated and comfortable.

Our Cozy Conditions technicians have training and experience, so they are able to weigh in all the factors to recommend if a repair is adequate or if a full replacement should be warranted instead. If only a few components are damaged, worn, or broken, a repair might be just as well to keep the ventilation system operating optimally again. Blocked filters, ducts, vents, and other equipment are very quick and easy fixes that sometimes provide the results you’re looking for without much cost associated.

Please wait...

If major components are failing or the system is working very hard to keep up with the demands of your home, it may indicate that a major repair is needed, and it will time to make a call on whether a replacement is a better option in the long run. We consider the age of the system, the cost of the repair versus the cost of the replacement, and your circumstances which may make one option more sensible than the other.

The first step is to determine if a replacement makes sense for your situation. If the system is in need of major repairs that cost nearly as much as a new unit, it will be recommended to replace. If the system needs only a few minor repairs but is more than 10 years old and has required more service than usual lately, it should be considered. If the system is struggling to meet the demands of your home and your energy bill is becoming astronomical, it should be considered. Our technicians weigh the needs of your home, the design and capabilities of your current system, the costs associated with repair against the cost of a replacement, and your financial situation to make the best recommendation that will work for you.

How often should you replace your ventilation system?
It is recommended to replace your ventilation system every 10 to 15 years, but practicing good upkeep, preventative maintenance, and regular service visits will help prolong the life of your HVAC system. Our technicians always do their best to give your system the best service possible whether the equipment is “past its useful life” or not.

I am a real estate agent and Will put in a new furnace for one of my clients. He did a great job and they were very happy with his work.

Mike D.

Will is experienced, reliable, and a great communicator. I hire and refer him whenever I get a chance!

Bethany O.

We had two other guys come out and couldn’t figure out the problem.Will figured it out right away. Will made us feel very comfortable. He always communicated every step of the way and we are very happy with his work. I would recommend Will to everyone I know!

Will is as good they get! He knows his stuff and is as fair and honest as they come. He’s a true family man who works hard for not only his family but also yours!!!


Will was very professional – he explained all the details and worked efficiently. The price was awesome too.

Francisco E.

Will replaced a furnace for me located in my basement. I was pleasantly surprised on how neat and clean the installation went. No issues and the furnace works great. I will have Cozy Conditions back this spring to do a service check on my AC.

Denise M.

We would gladly hire Cozy Conditions again for a project and would recommend them wholeheartedly. The work was done with care, they kept their commitments, and the work area was tidy and orderly.

Michelle L.

It was time to replace our existing unit. We got several bids, and so happy we went with Will. He was very informative, honest, and we really appreciated that. The timeline/install was exactly what he had said. I highly recommend Cozy Conditions! Thank you Will!!

Kimi L.

After screening several contractors and well-known HVAC businesses, it was clear to me that Cozy Conditions was the best overall value. I received daily updates on the progress of the job and Will always checked in to make sure I didn’t have any questions.

Clifford H.

Will not only did an excellent job of both my installations, but also charged me a rate which was extremely reasonable. He installed a mini-split system on the roof of my office building and an exhaust fan in the men’s restroom. He is now my regular HVAC tech.
