Do You Know Which HVAC Replacement Signs Are Vital?

If your furnace or air conditioner have reached “a certain age,” you might be seeing HVAC replacement signs and not even realize it. All mechanical devices including heating and cooling units have a specific life expectancy. The average life span of an AC or furnace depends upon this figure, but it’s also affected by variables including the local climate, the hours of use that a unit incurs during an average season and whether or not the system has received regular annual preventive maintenance by a qualified HVAC contractor.

Time takes its toll, and eventually HVAC replacement signs are bound to appear. Here are some indicators to be alert for:

Rising Costs. If you’re noticing increases in your monthly electrical or natural gas bill and you’ve ruled out other causes, it could be the result of declining efficiency in your central AC or furnace. Aging systems tend to consume more energy slowly but steadily. Installing a new air conditioner or furnace can provide improved energy efficiency from day one, meaning lower monthly operating costs.

Repeated Repairs. If your local HVAC technician is beginning to seem like a houseguest, it may be one of many HVAC replacement signs. Increasing expenses due to repeated service calls might be better invested in a new air conditioner or furnace that provides more reliability, higher energy efficiency, and a new warranty.

Big-Ticket Fixes. Certain critical parts of an HVAC system are so costly that installing a replacement part may not be worth it if the unit is already approaching the end of its expected service life. Namely, these are the central air conditioner compressor and the furnace heat exchanger.  Replacement with an all-new model is often a wiser choice. You’ll get improved efficiency, more modern cooling or heating technology, and years of reliability.

Now celebrating a century of sales and service to the Wabash Valley, the pros at Paitson Bros. are ready to help you make informed decisions if you’re beginning to notice HVAC replacement signs in your home.
