It’s hard to say goodbye to old friends. You probably don’t think of the HVAC system in your house as an “old friend,” even though it has provided your house with years of comfort. It’s not a flashy piece of equipment, and most of it is hidden. But saying goodbye to it does mean paying for a new one—and you don’t want to do that until it’s necessary.
Since spring is a good time to have a new HVAC system put in (take advantage of the mild weather and technicians’ less busy schedules), it’s also a good time to start considering if this is when you’ll retire your current one.
