Should You Upgrade Your Rental Property HVAC Unit?

Are you thinking about updating your rental property HVAC unit? If so, this is an important question to ask because 2020 marks the beginning of Freon Phase Out, a program that marks the end of the sale of freon in the United States.

Phasing out freon in the United States means that older HVAC units are going to become more expensive to repair and it will become almost cost-prohibitive to refill the freon in any older HVAC unit in the years to come.

How Much Does A New HVAC Unit Cost?

The good news is that a new HVAC unit is certainly affordable compared to HVAC units from years past. The minimum cost that you can expect to pay for a new HVAC unit in 2020 is just under $3,000 while the maximum cost is about $17,000.

If you’re the type of person who wants to know the average cost, the average cost for an HVAC unit across the United States is roughly $9,582.

Even though purchasing a new HVAC unit may seem like a pretty significant cost right now, the reality is that when you consider at an HVAC unit can last for up to 20 years, especially when you keep it well maintained, the reality is that it makes sense to replace an older HVAC unit now rather than trying to repair or maintain it in the months and years ahead.
