How Do I know If It Is Time to Upgrade My HVAC Unit?

If your HVAC is not heating or cooling as it should, read on for tips to help when deciding whether to upgrade.

HVAC technicians get a lot of general HVAC service questions, especially when it comes to upgrading heating and cooling systems. Are you wondering how to know when it’s time? Take a look at some factors that will help you decide.

Energy Efficiency

Assess the energy efficiency of your current HVAC system. Are your energy bills slowly getting higher and higher? Do you find that your heating and cooling system isn’t keeping up with demand the way it used to? If your system is older than 10-15 years, it’s not nearly as energy efficient as newer models. Instead of spending all of your money on your utility bills, investing in a high-efficiency HVAC system will save you money in the long-run.

Are You Spending Money on Repairs?

If you find that you’re spending more and more money on repairs in the last year or so, it could be an indication that your HVAC system is about at the end of its life. Most furnaces and air conditioners last between 10 and 15 years. As they age the wear and tear of daily use takes a toll. Your system will start to break down, especially if it wasn’t properly maintained over the years. If you find you’re on a first name basis with you HVAC tech because you see them so often, it might be time to talk to them about an upgrade.
