Is this your year for a new HVAC system? Read on to see if it’s time to replace your home’s current unit.
Your system is still running
This may sound counterintuitive, but the best time to start thinking about a new HVAC system is while your system is still working. Instead of sweating it out when the A/C goes down on a hot July day, research special offers now and learn more about the different cooling systems available in your area. Spring and fall months are typically less busy than the summer and winter months, meaning you likely won’t have to wait for an installation appointment.
Your system needs frequent repairs
Regular maintenance can add years to your HVAC system’s lifespan. However, things can still go wrong. An A/C that’s constantly running suggests that it’s not cooling as efficiently as it should. If you are always calling a service company because the house isn’t cool enough or the outside unit is making strange noises … at some point, you realize you’re spending more money on repairs and service calls than you would on a new system.
Your energy bills seem higher
As HVAC unit is not unlike the human body. As the HVAC unit gets older, it must work harder to produce desired results. An inefficient HVAC unit runs more often, leading to higher energy bills. Older units tend to be less energy-efficient than newer units, which means they cost more to run than their newer counterparts.
You’re interested in different or new technology
Perhaps you’ve been reading about heat pumps or ductless split systems and wonder if they would be a better option for your home. Maybe you’ve wondered if your HVAC system should include a whole-house filtration system to clear the air and keep your family healthy. The HVAC industry is constantly evolving and improving its products. If your HVAC unit is 10 years or older, you may discover it’s been replaced by technology that is easier to use, safer for the environment, and better for your home.
