Your HVAC system is supposed to provide year-round comfort. Regular heating and AC maintenance are necessary to ensure it runs smoothly and efficiently. Age and natural deterioration, however, are its greatest adversaries, so it will eventually need a complete replacement. Delaying this further isn’t ideal since you’ll pay more than expected for maintenance and repairs. It may even malfunction when you need it most!
The Consequences of Delaying Replacement
Keeping an old HVAC system running is more at risk of breaking down than a new one. If it’s already around 15 years old or more, consider a complete replacement because, at this time, the repairs start to get costly. You’ll also notice that the gap between each maintenance and repair job gets smaller over time. As you pay for repairs more frequently, you’ll be at a point where this won’t be enough to keep it running efficiently.
When to Get a Replacement
Even if your HVAC unit is only a few years old, it may still be vulnerable to breakdowns if it doesn’t undergo routine inspections. That’s why it is important to work with a professional heating and AC repair technician who can ensure that your unit is in good condition. They can also help determine whether it’s more cost-effective to repair or replace the entire system.
Another way to determine whether you need a complete HVAC replacement is to check your monthly energy bills. HVAC systems run efficiently over the first few years of their installation, but they can lose this over time due to wear and tear. Your unit will consume more energy as it ages which gradually results in higher electricity bills. Unexpected damage can also cause it to work harder than necessary just to maintain indoor temperatures.
