Does your St. Simons Island home need HVAC services or a whole new HVAC installation? Here are five surefire signs that an HVAC replacement should be on your to-do list:
HVAC that’s seen better days doesn’t perform well. It might not keep you comfortable no matter how high or low you set the thermostat. If you’ve been spotty about preventive maintenance, a tune-up might revive the unit and improve its performance. If you’ve been regular with maintenance but the unit is still performing poorly, it’s probably time for an HVAC replacement.
HVAC systems lose efficiency as they age. The older the system, the more it will cost you to use it. If utility bills are increasing for no known reason, your heating and cooling equipment is likely the culprit. Today’s HVAC systems get more efficient every year, so a replacement will give you greater indoor comfort at a lower monthly price.
Expensive HVAC Repairs
If HVAC repairs are mounting, you’re probably throwing money away by fixing the unit. That’s especially true of systems between 15 and 20 years old that haven’t been properly maintained. Without dedicated seasonal tune-ups, even young systems will suffer an early death.
Longer Run Times
The older the system, the longer it will run to reach and maintain the desired temperatures. Longer run times can indicate coil or blower motor problems, but older systems typically run longer even when everything else is fine. Longer run times often mean that the unit is about to go out.
