How Do I Know when My System Needs Replacing?
Thursday, January 21, 2016

Learn how to know when it is time to send your heating and air conditioning unit to that big factory in the sky.

HVAC salesman talking with homeowner

Heating and air conditioning units can be expensive, and no homeowner looks forward to replacing them. However, there comes a time when cost/benefit analysis just can’t be ignored. If you keep delaying the inevitable, you put your home and family at risk for the moment the machine completely conks out. Then you have no choice but to get another one, and fast!

Making the call to replace your system earlier on will optimize comfort, convenience, and savings. Keep reading for the tell-tale signs revealing you need to replace your heating and air conditioning system.

As many heating and air conditioning units get older, they start to exhibit three classic signs of inefficiency:

  • Poor Operating Conditions
  • Many homeowners start to notice a change in the quality of home temperature control when the system is on the fritz. Maybe your heater shuts off unexpectedly or can’t manage to keep a certain area warm in the winter. This is a sign of trouble brewing.

    Functional systems should have no problem keeping your home comfortable, from basic temperature to humidity levels. Newer units should also come with a programmable thermostat component for cost-saving efficiency when no one is home.

  • Frequent Repairs
  • Breakdowns are common in older systems, meaning you have to pay for a professional technician to come out and assess the problem. While you might be able to take stopgap measures and make quick fixes for a time, eventually the cost outweighs the benefit. You will be spending more on repair costs over time than you would if you just invested that money in a new machine that has better efficiency standards.

  • Excessive Noise
  • As your heating and air conditioning unit gets a little older, it might start to rattle more than it used to. This can be caused by a couple of different factors, either within the system itself or within the ductwork of your home. Either way, these systems are supposed to be seen and not heard. Getting this development checked out as soon as possible will give you a better idea of the lifespan your system has left.
