New Year, New Unit: Is It Time To Replace Your HVAC Unit?
It’s officially 2020, and time to make some necessary changes for a happier, healthier life! If your HVAC unit is in need of replacement, you and your loved ones probably aren’t as comfortable in your home as you could be. You may also be spending a lot of money on constant repairs and high energy bills. Are you ready to enjoy a cozier home this year? We’ve outlined the common signs that it’s time to replace your unit below.
It’s Over 10 Years Old
If your unit is over 10 years old and you’re dealing with constant problems, your best bet is likely to replace it. Systems typically last around 10 to 15 years with proper care and maintenance, and it’s rare that one will last longer without needing expensive repairs. In this day and age, HVAC units are pretty reliable. However, their major components will begin to deteriorate over time and a replacement simply becomes necessary.
Does it seem like you’re constantly having to get something new fixed, or the same component keeps breaking down over and over? Even well maintained systems need a minor repair every once in a while, but if you’re spending a lot of time and money on your HVAC problems, the best thing to do is go ahead and get a replacement. It’ll actually save you money in the long run without all the unnecessary stress!
If your unit has trouble heating or cooling your home to the temperature you set on the thermostat, that’s definitely a problem. You may notice that no matter what you do, your house isn’t getting nice and warm like it used to. Your utility bills are going up, but your HVAC efficiency is going down. You may also notice uneven temperatures throughout the house due to leaking ductwork. If you are experiencing any of these issues, it might be time to call for a professional evaluation.
Poor Air Quality
Air quality is incredibly important, and you want to make sure that your family is breathing clean air and staying healthy year-round.
