When Is the Best Time to Replace My HVAC System?
Heating and cooling companies, including McCall’s Supply dealers, get all kinds of general HVAC service questions. One of the most common is when is the best time to replace an HVAC system. Take a look at some important considerations.
The Age of the System
The age of the system is one factor to consider when trying to decide if you need a new HVAC system. Most heating and cooling equipment last for 10-15 years. If yours is approaching that age, it might be time to consider upgrading to a new unit.
Your Energy Bills
Have your utility bills been going up and up over the last 6-12 months? If yes, it could be a sign that your HVAC system is no longer performing the way it should. An older unit is not going to be as energy efficient as it once was, and an upgrade can boost your energy efficiency significantly. A more efficient system means money savings every month.
If you’ve noticed it’s harder and harder to keep your home comfortable, no matter how you set your thermostat, it could be a sign that you’re due for a new system. An older HVAC unit won’t be able to keep up with demand.
An HVAC system is a big investment. But having the right equipment in your home can make a huge difference, not only in your comfort level but in your monthly energy use as well. If you’ve noticed signs that your heating and cooling systems might be on their last legs, don’t panic. Contact the team at your local McCall’s Supply dealer to find out more about this common general service question and how they can help you find the right replacement unit to fit your needs.
