YOUR SYSTEM IS TEN YEARS OR OLDER
Modern HVAC systems are very durable, however, major components in the system will start to fail and deteriorate around ten years depending on how often you use and complete maintenance on them. The Department of Energy recommends homeowners replace their HVAC system every 10 to 15 years.
In addition, AC units that are ten years or older likely use the R-22 refrigerant. This type of refrigerant is outdated and harmful to the environment. Upgrading your system to a new unit will reduce your carbon footprint and help cut down your monthly energy bills.
REPAIRS WILL COST MORE THAN HALF OF A NEW REPLACEMENT
Air conditioners do require repairs from time to time and that is entirely normal. However, if your system is very old and needs a lot of major repairs it would be a better investment to replace the system entirely.
YOUR HOME CAN’T MAINTAIN A COMFORTABLE TEMPERATURE OR YOUR BILLS ARE HIGH
A big sign your system is aging is not being able to keep a consistent temperature in your house. It could be various different issues, like low fluid levels, clogged filters, damaged ducts, or even low fluid levels.
Inconsistencies with your temperature typically mean that your HVAC system isn’t powerful enough to supply air throughout your entire home. This will result in your system constantly running and working overtime which will increase your energy bills despite not keeping a comfortable temperature.
LOUD OR ODD SOUNDS
Your system should be relatively quiet without any noticeable sounds. If you’re hearing loud squealing or grinding sounds, that could be a sign the individual components could be failing and you should get it inspected immediately.
