A well-maintained HVAC system should give you a good 15 years of service. But just as with any piece of equipment, the accumulated wear and tear over the years is going to take its toll, and eventually you’ll need to replace the system that has kept your home comfortable for so many years.
The question is, of course, when do you need to replace your HVAC system? Please read on as we answer that question for you.
Knowing When to Replace Your HVAC System
We’ll be the first to concede that replacing your HVAC system is a considerable expense, and homeowners often delay that expenditure by getting their old unit repaired repeatedly.
Over time, however, those repair bills add up, and you eventually reach the point where it’s no longer practical to pour more money into your old, struggling system to keep it running.
Here are a few of the signs indicating replacement rather than repair should be your next step.
- Age: Your system is 15 years old and possibly more. HVAC systems aren’t designed to last forever, and after about 15 years, parts wear out, they lose their efficiency and the repair costs tend to mount.
- Frequent repairs: If repairs are starting to add up, the cost of replacement is typically lower in the long run.
- A major breakdown: Yes, it can possibly be fixed, but is it really cost-effective to lay out perhaps thousands of dollars to keep the old system running, when it’s far less efficient than today’s newer units?
- Increasing utility bills: As it ages, your old system struggles to keep your home warm in winter and cool and comfortable in summer. Because of its age, it’s lost a lot of its youthful efficiency, leading to higher utility bills every month. Today’s HVAC systems are far more energy-efficient than your old system, and over time you can regain a lot of your replacement costs through lower monthly energy bills.
