Your HVAC system is what maintains and controls the heating and cooling of your entire home. It keeps it warm in the winter and cool during the summer, and because of its importance, it is vital to know when it needs to be replaced.
If you’re thinking your HVAC system isn’t working as well as it should be, it could be time to get a new one. We broke down everything you need to know before you replace your current HVAC. Check it out below!
1. Loud Noises
The older your HVAC system gets, the louder it will become. But if you’re hearing an abnormal amount of noise, it may be time to look for a new model. Here are the common noises that would point to unit replacement.
- the blower is humming louder
- the outdoor unit is making more noise
- the furnace is groaning and banging
- noise before the air conditioner starts up
2. Increased Running Time
As your HVAC system ages, you’ll notice it staying on longer in order to reach the desired temperatures. This could also be caused by bad parts such as bad coils or a failing blow motor. Before you order a new installation, it is important to check these parts to ensure they are in working order.
3. Repairs & More Repairs
It is common at one point or another for your HVAC system to require a replacement part or need a small repair, but if a compressor, motor, or coil fails, a total HVAC replacement is far more worth it than trying to repair what’s broken. The cost of parts, as well as labor for repairing these essential components of your system, are high. In the long run, investing in a new HVAC is the smarter financial decision.
4. Your HVAC is 10+ years old
At the 10-year mark (when most HVAC warranties expire) and beyond, you can be assured that your system is going to experience decreased efficiency and start costing a lot in repairs. Avoid upcoming repair costs and rising energy bills by investing in a new HVAC unit.
So while installing a new HVAC system may seem like a pretty penny up front, it will save you money, time, and stress on the back end.
