How Do I Know When I Need to Upgrade My HVAC System?
Your home’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system (HVAC) works hard for you year-round, offering cool air in the summertime, hot air in the wintertime, and may even be responsible for providing hot water, too. When something is amiss and your HVAC system is functioning below standard, you may be wasting energy and money. While repairs and HVAC maintenance can help, there’s only so much that can be done before it’s time to totally upgrade. Here are some signs that it’s time to replace your HVAC system—
It’s Been a Decade or More
When was your HVAC system, or important elements of your system–like your furnace–installed? If it’s been more than a decade and you’re encountering problems, it might be better to replace your system now rather than to spend money on repairs today, only to have to inevitably replace the system tomorrow.
Repairs Are Expensive
Another sign that it may be time to upgrade your HVAC system is in the event that the repairs for your current system are half the cost–or greater–of purchasing a new appliance. When repairs start to move into the hundreds or thousands of dollars, talk about your options with a professional.
Quality Is Clearly Decreasing
There are a number of signs to look for that are indicative of an HVAC system that’s not up to par. These include:
- More dust in your home (even when you’re changing the filter regularly);
- Temperature fluctuations (not being able to maintain a temperature that’s comfortable); and
- Increased energy bills even though you’re not turning the temperature up or down.
