Signs You Need A New HVAC
From the moment you lose your wallet, the loss of money, energy and time is undeniable. Wasting money on your HVAC system is slightly less obvious but equally if not more upsetting, if you actually 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 & comfort, but that doesn’t mean you should be continually dumping resources into it! To determine whether or not you are losing money on your HVAC system, we have compiled a few telltale signs that indicate it’s time to install a new, more efficient HVAC unit in your home.
Repairs are Constant and Cost More
As your system ages, the years of work take a toll on the components within. Compressors, coils and motors will begin to breakdown more often. The ever constant repairs on your old system will begin to add up in terms of costs to you. At this point, installing a new system may be more cost efficient over time for you when measured against continuing, costly repair bills.
The Air Quality in Your Home 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.
Unusual Sounds Coming From Your System
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 you 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.
