Tips on HVAC Replacement
As a homeowner, you will eventually need to replace your heating/air conditioning system (HVAC). You might begin hearing noises that make it sound old and cause you to wonder whether it will run or not.
Your house might not be as comfortable as it was a few years ago; maybe the bedroom farthest from the furnace is cooler than it used to be (or hot in the summer). Your energy bills might be telling you “It’s time!” Statistically, your HVAC system will become less efficient after 10 years. How old is your system?
Replacing the HVAC system is quite a hit, so it is best that you financially prepare for replacement. There are some advantages you will experience when you replace your system. Here are a few of those advantages.
HVAC Replacement Lowers Energy Costs
Approximately 55% of your total energy bills go toward heating and cooling your home. Each year energy cost goes up, so a reduction in the efficiency of your HVAC system should catch your attention. A new HVAC will be (statistically) 20-40% more efficient than an old system.
How does that happen?
Older HVAC components wear out. They might last 10 years, 15, 20, or 25 years, but moving mechanical parts will reach an end of usefulness.
A new system will bring new technology:
Efficiency Based Incentives
Prior to making your purchase, connect with your HVAC professional concerning tax credits, energy companies or manufacturers’ rebates, and special financing offers. Incentives might help you determine when you purchase equipment since most of these incentives do not apply to repairing old systems.
HVAC Replacement Increases Comfort
While not a financial benefit, too much cannot be said about the improved comfort of a new HVAC system. If you must constantly adjust your thermostat to keep you comfortable, if the air smells musty or feels excessively humid in the summer, then the comfort of a new system will be very evident.
Modern HVAC units come with great comfort features, such as variable speed fans, 2-stage compressors, and humidity controls built into the thermostat. The satisfaction of coming home to a cozy setting will make everyone happy, including “momma.”
Longevity Means Reliability
HVAC technology is hardy and resilient. It is made to last for a decade or two. When properly maintained, it cools all summer long and heats throughout the winter nights. It happens every time you need it. If something does go wrong, a warrantee covers parts and HVAC Replacement costs for a specified time.
The long lifespan of HVAC systems will give you the peace of mind of knowing it will keep you comfortable for years to come. It is hard to put a price tag on peace of mind, but it is a benefit, nonetheless.
