Your heating and air conditioning system serves you well, but even they have a limited life expectancy. When your old HVAC system is on its last leg, it’s often hard to tell. Here are three signs that it needs to go.
Sign #1: The Age of the System
One sure sign your HVAC needs to go is its age. If it’s older than 15 years, it’s past its prime. Most heating and cooling equipment lasts approximately 15 years before it needs replacement. At that age, it loses efficiency, and the parts begin to wear out, so the whole system isn’t as effective as it once was.
Sign #2: More and More Repairs
If you find you’re calling for service and repairs more frequently the longer you have your HVAC unit, it’s a sign that it needs to go. Regular service and maintenance can give your system a longer life, but there comes a point where you need to stop spending money on equipment that is no longer keeping up with demand.
Sign #3: Energy Bills Keep Increasing
If the amount you’re paying to heat and cool your house keeps going up, it could be time to say goodbye to your current HVAC. Instead of continuing to pour money into a system that no longer serves you, invest in a system that will provide the comfort you need and the energy and money savings you want.
