With summer upon us, now is the perfect time to consider having your home’s HVAC system replaced if it has been showing signs of aging in recent years. The fact is that your home’s HVAC system plays a critical role in keeping you safe and comfortable year-round, which makes it important that you do not wait for your system to fail to have it replaced. Yet, many homeowners have a hard time replacing their heating or AC system if it seems to be working just fine. However, if your HVAC system is showing signs of aging, there are many benefits you could gain by choosing to have it replaced preemptively. Here are just a few reasons you should consider replacing your old HVAC system.
Your System is More Than 15 Years Old
With proper maintenance, an HVAC system will last about 15 years. Of course, if you do not take proper care of your heater and air conditioner, you may be lucky to get ten years out of them. If your HVAC system is not functioning properly and it is over 15 years old, it is likely in your best interest to have it replaced. Spending money to have your HVAC system repaired isn’t recommended if it is nearing the end of its life, but doing nothing could leave you in a tough situation should your system break down when you need it most.
You Can’t Get Comfortable
One of the clearest signs that it may be time to have your HVAC system replaced is if you can’t seem to get comfortable in your home. If you are constantly adjusting the thermostat to no avail, then there is likely something wrong with your HVAC system. While repairs may help, if your system is aging or you have had multiple repairs in recent years, you should be prepared to have to replace your HVAC system.
Utility Bills Are Through The Roof
As your HVAC system ages, it will start to have a harder time heating and cooling your home. This will lead to decreased efficiency, which will likely be indicated by a large increase in your utility bills. If the cost of heating and cooling your home has risen exponentially in recent years, it may be time to consider investing in replacing your outdated HVAC system.
