Sooner or later, every homeowner is faced with the need to replace their existing HVAC equipment because it’s either aging or in disrepair. If you’ve been wondering if buying a new HVAC system is in your near future, consider these things to look for:
The Unit Is Blowing Warm or Hot Air
If your air conditioning system starts blowing warm or hot air, this is a very clear indication that something is wrong. It may simply need a small repair, but if this has happened before, then replacement may be your best plan of action.
The System Is More Than a Decade Old
With proper care and yearly maintenance by a licensed HVAC technician, your air conditioning unit will last well more than a decade. But, if it’s hit the 10-year mark and you’ve been experiencing problems, then it may be time to put it out to pasture and invest in a new system.
Repairs Have Become Pricey
Repairs are an inevitable part of home ownership, but if you find yourself paying to get your air conditioner fixed on a regular basis or at a high cost, then there’s a problem. At that point, it would be much more sensible to purchase a brand-new unit.
Monthly Utility Bills Have Gone Up
When an air conditioner starts to malfunction and becomes less efficient, it will be forced to be in operation longer than it should be. If you’ve noticed that your monthly utility bills have gone up considerably and getting maintenance done doesn’t solve the problem, the system may need to be replaced.
You’re Experiencing Poor Indoor Air Quality
When an air conditioner isn’t working properly, its filtration system will often cease to function as it should. If this leads to poor indoor air quality, then you may want to have it replaced for the sake of your household’s health.
