Three Undeniable Signs that Your Heating System or Air Conditioner Needs Replacing
March 22, 2016
The average homeowner relies on heating and air conditioning to stay comfortable all year long. Maintaining a consistent and comfortable living temperature is important no matter the season. Unfortunately, neither our furnaces nor our air conditioners will last forever. When simple repairs aren’t enough, you may need to replace your HVAC system altogether. Read below to learn the three signs that indicate a necessary unit replacement.
Your heating and cooling systems are more than 10-15 years old
Typically, the average air conditioner has a lifespan of 12 to 15 years when properly cared for and maintained. But once your system reaches about 10 years of age, a replacement may be on the horizon. Even the best heating and cooling systems age: you might be putting more money into your home by constantly calling a repair team instead of just replacing it completely. HVAC unit replacements are a smart investment to make.
You hear rattling or clanking noises
An air conditioning unit can make odd noises due to a number of factors, from improper installation to broken components. No matter the issue, hearing that unmistakable rattling noise means you may need to replace your system. Those noises you hear means that your system isn’t working properly or a serious repair needs to be made. Call an expert heating and cooling team to diagnose the issue so you can get back to living comfortably.
Your heating and cooling bills have greatly increased in recent months
Does it seem like your energy bills increasing each month? It might be your air conditioner or heating system. There are a variety of factors that cause this with a simple solution: HVAC unit replacement. First, old systems output more energy as they work harder to heat and cool your home. Newer models are designed to be more energy efficient and have a better SEER rating. Newly-manufactured air conditioners are required to have a SEER rating of at least 13. By upgrading to one of these systems, you can save hundreds of dollars each year in energy costs alone.
