Your HVAC system is often the difference between you and your family enjoying a comfortable indoor environment or not. An HVAC system can last for years (especially with regular maintenance). However, it won’t last forever. Eventually, you’ll need to replace it, so you’re not stuck with a surprise breakdown. Here’s what you need to know about HVAC replacement.
When Is It Time To Replace Your HVAC System?
Replacing your HVAC system is no small expense or simple task. However, sticking with your old, outdated system could cost you more in the long run. Not to mention, when it does break down, you’ll need to replace it anyway. It’s better to plan out this expense than face it unexpectedly. Here are some ways to tell it’s time for HVAC replacement.
High Utility Bills
Does your energy bill continue to climb year-round? It’s likely due to an inefficient system. As your HVAC system ages, it can lose anywhere from 5-10% efficiency. The less efficient your system is, the more you will end up paying.
Temperature Inconsistencies in Your Home
Does it always seem like some parts of your home are warmer or cooler than others? This could be due to the size of your HVAC system. If it’s too large, it may short cycle. This means that it reaches the desired temperature too quickly and shuts off.
The problem could also be with the ductwork that carries conditioned air. Call a professional HVAC technician to have your system and ductwork checked.
Your HVAC System Is Too Old
Is your HVAC system 10 years or older? Units that exceed this milestone do not meet the energy-efficient systems the way modern systems do. Old units also tend to face more problems more often as well. Instead of being stuck in a near-endless cycle of repairs and maintenance, it may be easier and less expensive to just replace the unit.
Saving with a New HVAC System
Modern air conditioning and heating systems can help you save on your energy bills. New Carrier and ENERGY STAR® systems can help you save money and help the environment.
You’ll also face fewer problems and less need for repairs—saving you more money. Combined with regular maintenance, you could help your new energy-efficient system last longer, which means more money saved.
