When do you know its time for a new HVAC System?
One of the toughest decisions a homeowner will have to make about their HVAC system is when it’s time for a new system. With today's HVAC systems, a new system can be a big investment, but so can the costs of continuing to repair and operate an old, inefficient system. So how is a homeowner supposed to know when it’s time to replace their old system? SuitsAC.com has listed a few examples to help you with your decision.
Reasons why you should consider replacing your
Older System, Cost of Repairs
- If your system is more than 12 years old, you might consider. As a well-maintained system is usually expected to last about 15 years. So if you are in need of expensive repairs and your air conditioner is more than 12 years old, it will often make better sense to replace the system rather than spend more money on an older system that might require even more repairs in the near future. In regards to your older HVAC system, when you are facing an expensive repair, you’ll want to weigh the costs of the repair against the costs of a new unit. If the cost of the repair would cover a large part of a new system, it will likely to make more financial sense to replace it.
Cost of Operating Older System
- When it comes to older HVAC systems they are usually a much lower SEER rating then are the current systems. So in keeping your older system it can cost you a lot of money to operate. Currently, newly manufactured air conditioners must have a SEER rating of at least 13.
Older Systems Using R-22 Freon
- If your older HVAC system still uses R-22 Freon you might want to look to replace your HVAC system. As the R-22 Freon is being phased out by the federal government and will effectually could not be available in the future. Also as a result of the governments decision to phase out R-22 Freon the costs of the R-22 Freon has risen exponentially. Which only drives up the cost of repairs on a R-22 HVAC system up for the homeowners still using the older R-22 Freon systems. Eventually if you own a HVAC using R-22 Freon you will have to replace it in order to switch over to the new refrigerant (R410A) used by the new systems. If you’re having major problems with your air conditioner, especially if they involve the need for more Freon, it’s probably a good time to replace your unit.
If Your Home is Not Staying at a Comfortable Temperature
- If your home cannot maintain a comfortable temperature with you current and older HVAC System. This could be the sign that you may need to look at replacing your HVAC system. This is where you will run into spending money of expensive energy costs as your older system stays running to try and cool your home. Regardless of the reasons, you want your system to do its job! If it’s not going to keep your home cool, you’ll want to replace it with a new HVAC system that will.
