Know When to Say “Upgrade!”

by | Jul 28, 2017 | Uncategorized

Knowing when to upgrade your heating and air conditioning system is crucial to both its well-being and yours. If you wait too long, you could end up in an emergency situation that will cost you more than necessary. If you replace too soon, you could lose some precious years from your existing system, spending money that could have gone elsewhere. These are good reasons to have a maintenance plan in place so that your technician can monitor the system, know its history, and flag any problems that could become major headaches. In addition, knowing the basic reasons to upgrade your HVAC system can also help you to make the decision.

If your heat pump or air conditioner is more than 10 years old, it may not be as efficient as a newer unit that can save you as much as 20 percent on cooling costs. If your furnace or boiler is more than 15 years old, consider a newer model. In addition, if you see your energy bills increasing and you seem to be calling for service more frequently, this is a sign that your system is losing efficiency. Inconsistent heating or cooling among rooms is another “symptom” of a failing system, as is increased humidity in the home. Noise can also signal problems with the indoor coil, letting you know it’s time for a system upgrade.

If you are getting close to the golden age of your HVAC system and your technician suggests you start thinking about an upgrade, check out the manufacturer offers and rebates, as well.. Note the deadlines and plan your purchase accordingly to take advantage of any cost savings. If you know when to say “Upgrade,” then you’ll be in control, rather than your HVAC system controlling you.
