Signs It’s Time To Upgrade Your Home Heating and AC Units

Knowing when to repair or replace an HVAC unit can seem tricky to many homeowners.  However, there are specific telltale signs that indicate it’s time to consider replacing your heating and cooling equipment.

Here is a list to consider:

Your HVAC system is not as efficient as newer models

Newly manufactured air conditioners have improved efficiency levels (SEER rating) of 25.  Upgrading to newer models will increase efficiency and reduce your bills for years to come.

Your HVAC unit is older than ten years

Your heating or cooling unit will only perform efficiently for not more than 10 – 15 years.  An HVAC unit that has reached its twilight years should be replaced with a new one to save you the costs of operating an old, inefficient unit.

A rise in energy costs

If there is an increase in energy costs, your cooling or heating equipment may have become less efficient.  Though the initial cost of a replacement may be more than the repair, you’ll save money in the long run because the energy bills will significantly reduce.

Regular and expensive repairs

If you continuously need to fix your HVAC system, it’s time you considered replacing it all together.  The regular repairs could quickly add up to the price of a new unit.  You would better stay ahead by replacing your unit now.

Your HVAC is noisy

If your home’s heating and cooling system are producing odd and loud sounds, it may be a sign that it’s struggling to reach the desired temperatures and you need to get the experts involved to diagnose the issue which could end up in a replacement.

The air conditioner uses R 22 Freon

Units that utilize R-22 have been phased out by the federal government and replaced with newer and more efficient refrigerant (R410A).  If your air conditioner uses Freon, it’s a good time to replace your unit.

If you are in need of a new HVAC equipment, don’t hesitate to contact Blackwell Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. to check on your unit and let you know if it’s time to replace.
