Several Reasons Why You Need To Replace Your HVAC Unit

Your HVAC unit works hard to keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. You rely on it to produce a balmy temperature in your home to keep you comfy all year round. But, like everything in life, the HVAC system has a sell-by date when it needs to be replaced.

Why It Is Important to Get a New Air Conditioning Unit

The usual lifespan of an HVAC system is between 10 and 15 years. After that time is up, the unit may become less efficient and costly to keep running. Replacing your old HVAC system may be hard because you may have gotten used to the appliance, and it seems to be working fine for now. After all, you believe that if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it (and especially don’t replace it).

However, since your HVAC is at least 10 years old, the technology in your unit is much older than in the brand new ones. Old technology means your unit is less energy efficient, which means it takes a lot more energy to keep it running than the newer model would take. If your HVAC uses less energy to give you that ambient temperature, it means you save on energy bills.

Old technology also means that companies stop producing spare parts for older units because they need to make parts for the newer models. When it is difficult to find spare parts, they become more expensive. So now it is more costly to have your good old HVAC repaired.

When an appliance becomes old, it breaks down more often. Even though you may think that your HVAC noises are charming and quaint as it splutters, bangs and chugs along, it probably means that another repair bill is on its way.

The Benefits of Investing In a New HVAC Unit

One of the main benefits of investing in a new HVAC system is improving the quality of air it provides. Some units have air purifying systems installed, which means that your air is free from all allergens and bacteria. If anyone in your family suffers from allergies, installing this system will help control their allergy symptoms.

Of course, new HVACs have energy-efficient technology that makes them much cheaper to operate. Not only does the unit itself use less energy to produce a comfortable temperature, but new units also have smart thermostats installed. Smart thermostats let you control the temperature in your home from anywhere in the world. No more wasting energy on warming or cooling an empty house. You can remotely switch off your system for the hours when no one is at home and switch it back on again before the family arrives back in the evening.

Not to mention, a new HVAC system increases the resale value of your house. Should you want to sell your house soon, prospective buyers will be attracted by the new HVAC system as they consider how long it will last before they need to replace it.
