Sure Signs Your HVAC Unit Is Ready For Replacement
If you lose your wallet, the loss of money, energy and time is undeniable. Wasting money on your HVAC system is a little less obvious than a lost wallet but just as upsetting if you look at the numbers.
As one of the most important components of your home, an HVAC system’s efficiency and functionality are invaluable to your family’s safety and comfort, but that doesn’t mean you should be constantly dumping resources into it! To determine whether or not you are losing money on your HVAC system, Cool Air Solutions has compiled a few telltale signs that indicate it’s time to install a new, more efficient HVAC unit in your home.
You Need Frequent, Costly Repairs
As your HVAC system ages, the years of work take a toll on the components within. Compressors, coils and motors will begin to break down more often. The ever-constant repairs on your older system will begin to add up in terms of costs to you. At this point, installing a new system may be more cost-efficient for you when measured against continuing, costly repair bills.
Your Home’s Air Quality Is Bad
The chances that your older system is harboring harmful contaminants increases with every passing year. Dust, mold, odor-causing particles, excess humidity and other allergens that have become trapped in your system may circulate throughout your home’s air, creating or aggravating health and comfort problems.
Loud and unpleasant sounds from your heating and air conditioning unit are often signs of serious problems. These problems may be due to the age of the components in your system, causing important mechanical parts to be overstressed and become worn down earlier than they should. The motors, fans and blowers of your HVAC unit should work without loud grinding or creaking sounds. A newer HVAC system will run quietly, without annoying sounds to disturb the peace and quiet of your home.
