Should I repair or replace my HVAC system?

A few reasons you may want to replace your HVAC system rather than repair it include: 

  • Your HVAC system is over 15 years old. 
  • Your HVAC system breaks down often. 
  • Your energy bills have drastically increased.

Another reason you may want to replace your HVAC system rather than repair it is if the cost to repair your equipment is more than the cost of having it replaced. To get your HVAC system repaired or replaced, contact us today.

How much does it cost to replace a HVAC unit in Columbus, OH?

It costs around $5,000-$10,000 to replace an HVAC unit in Columbus, OH. The price can be affected by: 

  • The size of your home. 
  • The type of HVAC unit you have installed. 
  • The cost to remove your current HVAC unit and install the new unit. 

The overall cost can increase if you also need to have your existing ductwork replaced with new ductwork during the HVAC installation. To learn more about getting your HVAC system replaced, give us a call today.

Review of Sears Heating & Cooling

Cody, was very professional and engaging. He was really thorough and patient about what he was doing and why. That young man (Kody), also have me very interested in purchasing a furnace surge protector….I’ll be calling the office soon about scheduling an appointment to get one installed. He should be considered a valuable asset to your company. Respectfully, Daniel

Overly charged for service




Review of Sears Heating & Cooling

The furnace part replaced costs only $25 at most, but Cody charged me $269 plus $79 for coming in to check the problem. This is highway robbery!


Response from Sears Heating & Cooling:

Hi Frank-I'm sorry you feel this way. The price you paid is the cost for us to send a fully licensed and trained tech in a fully stocked truck (on a weekend no less) to your home to fix your furnace. You could have declined the price if you did not agree with it. If we only charged $25 for a repair, we would not be able to pay employees let alone offer them healthcare for them and their families. I would encourage you to call around to other local HVAC companies and compare pricing as I assure you that we are competitive, otherwise we would not still be in business after 72 years. The cost you paid covers the parts, labor, company overhead and a 10% profit. I think 10% profit is fair for the service we provide. Thanks for your comments and we wish you the best in finding another HVAC company that suits your needs.

Josh is very efficient in his work. He gave me practical options and pricing. He gave me a heads up call first and showed up on time.
