Should I Upgrade My HVAC System?
One of the most significant decisions for a homeowner (besides deciding on what color they should paint the living room) is when they should replace their current HVAC unit. While the system you currently have may seem to be running smoothly, there’s a chance it might be ready for retirement.
If you’re contemplating whether or not to go out with the old and in with the new, here are some benefits a new system can offer you and your family!
Why Should I Replace My Current HVAC Unit?
It Celebrated a Milestone Birthday
As the old saying goes: “Nothing lasts forever” — which applies to your HVAC unit. Typically, central heating and cooling units last between 10-15 years — as long as repairs are made (when needed), and they receive tune-ups, annually. However, if you let your maintenance schedule fall by the wayside throughout the years, then it’s possible that its lifespan can be cut in half sooner than you expect it to.
It Requires Frequent Repairs
Comfort is key — especially when you’re spending more time inside of your San Diego home. And if you have an HVAC unit that requires repair more regularly, this may indicate that it’s time to make the switch to a new, improved system. In fact, it may be a wiser investment to replace the unit altogether, rather than to keep scheduling repairs; the initial cost of the new unit may equal the amount you’ve spent in service visits over the years from your HVAC technician.
It’s Not Running As Efficiently As Possible
Nowadays, HVAC units are manufactured to run much more efficiently than their “grandparents.” In fact, newer models tend to use less energy and heat/cool your humble abode evenly — which can even help improve your indoor air quality.
Therefore, if your HVAC system is considered a senior unit (ten years old and up), as mentioned before, it is likely to cost you more to run it than the new, more energy-efficient and technologically advanced systems. Another perk to consider: opting for a newer unit can even increase the value of your home (if you ever decided to put it on the market down the road); something to consider!
