Not sure if it’s time to replace your HVAC system? Here’s five tell-tale signs it might be time.
1. Age of your HVAC system
One of the most obvious signs is its age. Most HVAC systems installed ten or more years ago don’t perform as powerfully or efficiently as they once did. Some older systems require constant service and maintenance to keep them in working condition. Over time, these endless fixes wind up costing more than it would to replace the older system with a more efficient system.
2. Your home is uncomfortable
Every day your system works hard to get your home to the temperature you desire. But why is it hotter in some rooms and colder in others? It could be the weather slipping in or it could be the system’s inability to handle the demand.
When your system was installed it may have been inaccurately measured to meet your home’s needs. So now when it’s working hard to get your home to a comfortable level it overproduces or underproduces leaving you with an uncomfortable home.
3. Repair costs are breaking the bank
If you are having to call technicians out more and the bills are starting to add up, it might be time to replace your HVAC system. The older your system gets the more service and maintenance it will require. Every time a service technician comes out to your home it could cost hundreds of dollars. Replacing your HVAC system might seem expensive, but over time, replacing it could save you thousands of dollars in service and maintenance fees.
4. Higher utility bills
Have your utility bills skyrocketed and you don’t know why? An outdated HVAC system may play a huge role in why your bills keep going up. Each year your HVAC system loses a bit of its efficiency and power. Causing your system to work harder than the year before. The more energy it needs to power, the more your bills will rise.
5. Your HVAC System needs major repair
If your system is in need of major repair and it’s going to cost you thousands of dollars, it’s probably time to replace your system. Some of the HVAC’s electrical and piping components can cost hundreds of dollars. After you factor in the service fees and the cost in parts you could be looking at thousands of dollars. When this happens, it’s probably time to think about replacing your system.
