When Should I Replace My HVAC System?

When facing a broken HVAC system, it is important to consult with a company that provides both HVAC repairs and replacements. Many “broken” HVAC systems are simply in need of repair. We offer free second opinions to homeowners who have been advised to replace their system. Too often, we come across units only needing AC repair when the homeowner has been told they need a new HVAC system. Read these signs to know when you should replace your HVAC system.

 

At Air Care Systems, we are passionate about providing unbiased opinions to each of our customers. Because we specialize in both HVAC repairs and replacements, we offer services that benefit you. If your HVAC system needs to be replaced, we’ll work with you to find a new unit that suits your needs.

 

When it’s time to replace your HVAC system, it will not only provide a more comfortable living environment but will also save money on your energy bills! Here are a few of the signs that it may be time to replace your current HVAC system:

HVAC System is An Older Unit

Most HVAC systems on the market today are designed to last between 10 and 15 years. Although your system may still run after this timeframe, it has likely lost much of its efficiency.

 

Your geographical location, as well as other outside factors, will impact the lifespan of your unit. If you notice your HVAC system is no longer running efficiently, it may be reaching the end of its lifespan.

Your System Requires Extensive Repairs

Just because you can repair a problem with your HVAC system doesn’t mean that you should. In some situations, it is wiser to invest in a new AC unit replacement than to spend money on temporary repairs.

 

If the estimate for repairs is more than half the cost of a new system, it is likely worth the greater investment for longtime comfort. At Air Care Systems, we provide our customers with multiple options for addressing their current HVAC problems.

Strange Smells, Sounds, or Sights

If you carefully observe your home environment, you may notice signs that your HVAC system is reaching the end of its lifespan. Unusual sounds while the system is running or strange smells throughout the home are indicators that your system requires attention.

 

Because your HVAC system is responsible for improving the air quality of your home, excessive dust or debris could be a sign that your unit is not working properly.

Rising Energy Bills

There are many ways to monitor the efficiency of your HVAC system. Most of our customers realize that their home is no longer consistently comfortable. Your energy bill is also an indicator of the efficiency of your system. An energy bill that continues to rise can be a sign of a problem within your HVAC system.
