When to Upgrade Your HVAC System

Posted on: December 22, 2017

Is it time for a new HVAC system? At James A. Wheat & Sons, we want ot help our customers avoid the frustration of a breakdown and an emergency service call. While we are here for you 24/7, and we believe that being proactive is always the best policy. If you’re wondering whether it’s time to upgrade your HVAC system, here are some signs to watch for.

1. Age of the System

Most HVAC systems have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years. If yours is getting near the end of that anticipated lifespan, it’s time to start saving for an upgrade. Even if the system is still functioning, it’s probably nowhere near as efficient as it should be, and upgrading will help improve the overall comfort of your home.

2. Repair Bills

Are you spending hundreds each month just to keep your HVAC system going? At some point, it becomes obvious that you need to have the system replaced to stop the constant repair bills. The team at James A. Wheat & Sons can help you determine if replacement or continued repair is the more cost effective option.

3. Efficiency

If your system is starting to show signs of age, then chances are high it’s no longer heating or cooling your home efficiently. Upgrading will greatly increase the overall efficiency of your home, reduce your energy bills, and lessen your impact on the environment. If you’re noticing your energy bills starting to creep up, and nothing about your energy use has changed, then you may need an HVAC upgrade.

4. Effectiveness

How well is your HVAC system heating or cooling your home? If you’re noticing hot spots or uneven heating, it may be the system is becoming worn out. Upgrading and ensuring the new system is properly sized for your home will help eliminate this problem and improve your overall comfort in your home.
