Is your home not feeling as comfortable as it should? Are your utility bills growing? Do you have frequent service calls to check on your heat and air? It may be time to replace your HVAC. Making this decision can seem a bit daunting and cost-prohibitive, but if your HVAC system is past its lifespan, leaving it to coll and heat your home will eventually incur higher costs than replacing it for a new one. Fritts Heat & Air has the trained technicians and expertise to make this transition as smooth as possible. There is no magic number on how long your HVAC system will last, but here are some signs that it is time for an upgrade.
8 signs that it is time to replace your HVAC
#1 Your air conditioner or heat pump is more than 10 years old or your furnace is more than 15 years old
Age is not just a number when we’re talking HVAC. If your equipment is celebrating many birthdays and anniversaries, it may be time to go ahead and replace your HVAC equipment.
#2 Your equipment is inundated with frequent and expensive repairs
Frequent repairs and racked up service bills may indicate your HVAC system needs an upgrade.
#3 Your energy bill grows higher and higher each month
Are you paying more than you think you should in energy bills? 40% of your energy bill consists of heating and cooling, and your HVAC may be the culprit to blame when it comes to your high energy bill. This may indicate you need an upgraded HVAC system.
#4 Certain rooms in your home are either too hot or too cold
If your home is having trouble maintaining homeostasis throughout its entirety, it may be time to upgrade and replace your HVAC system.
#5 Your home is experiencing humidity problems
Is your air too dry in the winter or too humid in the summer? If so, your equipment may be running poorly or it may be inadequate.
#6 Dust is present throughout your home
Air ducts are responsible for transporting the heated or cooled air throughout your home. But if there is a leak or hole present in the ductwork, it can pull air and debris from attics, basements, and crawl spaces and scatter the particles throughout your home.
#7 Your home isn’t as comfortable as it used to be
Comfort is a necessity at home, and if your home comfort seems a bit “off”, this could be an indicator or an aging air conditioner or an incorrectly sized system.
#8 Your system is loud and noisy
This could indicate an issue with an indoor coil on your cooling equipment.
If you feel that your HVAC is experiencing any of these issues and are ready to replace your system, Fritts Heat & Air is here for you.
