Your HVAC system is likely the most important home comfort component that you have installed in your house. So when it comes down to it, taking care of your heating and cooling unit is high on the priority list! So what do you do if you've noticed that it's not working the way it used to. Is it too old, does it need a tuneup? If you've got concerns that it might be time to replace your HVAC system, here are some sure signs that you should consider installing a new system for your home!
1. Your heat pump, air handler, furnace or boiler are more than 10 years old.
HVAC systems only last so long, and as they age, they begin to wear out, costing you more money to heat and cool your home. Consider replacing it with a high efficiency HVAC unit! You'll save money and be more eco-friendly!
2. Your equipment needs frequent repairs and your energy bills are going up.
If you've noticed your energy bills sky rocketing and your system needing constant repairs, you're likely in need of a replacement. HVAC systems that are ready to die should be replaced, don't spend thousands of dollars attempting to resuscitate a system that won't serve you well.
3. Some rooms are hot or cold.
If your guest bedroom is constantly sweltering, or your bathroom is strangely chilly, your house isn't haunted....it's more than likely poor equipment operation!
4. You notice problems with your home's humidity.
Things like poor equipment operation, inadequate equipment size, or leaky ductwork can cause the air to be too dry in the winter or too humid in the summer, creating indoor air quality problems and causing a rise on your bill.
5. Your home is plagued by excessive dust.
Unfortunately, leaky ducts can pull particles and air from attics, crawl spaces and basements and distribute them throughout your house. Sealing your ducts may be a solution!
6. Your heating or cooling system is loud and obnoxious.
You could have an undersized duct system or a problem with the indoor coil of your cooling equipment. General need of maintenance could also be the cause of a noisy system.
