It can be hard to know when to replace an HVAC system and when it is worth it to have your heating and air conditioning repaired. The fact is that there are three specific reasons that it is likely worth it to replace your HVAC system. You can always contact Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing at (661) 947-2653 for an honest assessment of your specific needs, but you can also keep reading to learn about three of the common reasons it is time to replace your unit.
- Your HVAC Unit is More than a Decade Old
According to recommendations from Energy STAR, if you have an AC unit that is at least a decade old then it is likely time to replace it. This is especially true if it is not evenly cool and heating your home, if your unit must now run more than it used to in order to get to the right temperature, if you notice your utility bills are higher than normal, or if it is no longer working to capacity.
- Your Home is Not Comfortable
An HVAC system that is working too hard cannot keep your home at a consistent temperature. It could be that your thermostat is damaged or inaccurate, or that there is another part of your AC that can be repaired and replaced without the need for replacement.
However, it may be that you need to have the unit replaced. Even if it is not an issue of poor quality, it could be that the unit was never right for your home. If you have a large home then you need an AC unit that can handle the size of your home. If your older unit was not the right size to begin with, it will have a tough time keeping your home cool.
- The Air Quality in Your Home is Poor
Many homeowners have no idea that the air quality in their home is affected by their HVAC system. If you have noticed that there is biological growth (such as mold or mildew), dust seems to accumulate more than it normally does, or that the humidity levels within your home are unusually high, then you may have an issue with your HVAC system that is negatively impacting the indoor air quality. The good news is that your local HVAC contractor can take a look and offer options to improve the air quality, which may include repair or replacement of your system.
