When it comes to your home’s trusted AC system, there comes a time when you have to bite the bullet and realized that everything has a lifespan. As far as heating and air conditioning equipment goes, you should start thinking about replacement once your equipment is 10 years or older. The technology has advanced so much in the past 10 years; you will undoubtedly see better performance and energy savings immediately.
When it comes to your AC system, knowing that sooner than later is not only vital to your expenses but to your home’s comfort too. If you are unsure if it’s time for another maintenance call or you have to upgrade to the younger model, here’s what to look for:
Energy Bills on The Rise. An older system leads to more energy waste. Whether it’s not equipped to cool off your home correctly or lacks today’s energy efficient technology, it’s time to call it quits and get yourself a new and energy efficient system.
Barely Cooling Off Your Home. If you feel like your thermostat just isn’t matching the comfort in your home, your system could be to blame. If your cold air is taking longer and longer to come out, it might be that your system is nearing its lifespan.
Constant Repairs. Repairs happen, but if you are spending a good chunk on fixing constant issues, talk to your tech about the benefit of an upgrade. It could save you money in the long run and improve your comfort.
It’s Reaching Middle School Age. When it comes to your HVAC system, the general age span even with the best care is 10-15 years. By working to keep your dated system functioning, you could be putting a ton of money into something that will soon be unfixable. Not only that— it’s old parts are costing your energy bill to rise, too.
It Makes Loud Noises. A healthy and happy AC should be quiet and peaceful throughout the home. A loud, clunky, or noisy machine is one that is probably in need of severe repair or replacement. If these new noises keep coming, it’s time to reach out to an expert!
