HVAC Replacement

Your home’s HVAC system is essential for keeping your home warm in the winter and cool during the summer. During the most extreme weather conditions, you want to be able to trust your HVAC system to deliver the performance you expect. However, like other appliances, your HVAC system will need replacing at some point either due to age or wear. 

Signs You Need a New HVAC System

When you need a new HVAC system there will be signs that your old system is reaching its end of life. On average HVAC units last 10 to 20 years and if your unit is getting older it may be time to replace it. Other signs you need a new unit include reduced performance, your unit running longer and longer to cool or heat your home, and an increase in HVAC repairs. If you have to keep hiring a professional air conditioning contractor to fix your HVAC system, a replacement could be cheaper than the continued upkeep costs of your aging Ruud, Guardian or Luxaire unit.    

Four Things to Consider Before Buying a New HVAC System

  1. Energy Efficiency: One of the key benefits of replacing an old HVAC unit is the opportunity to replace it with a more efficient model. By buying an HVAC unit with a high energy efficiency rating, you can reduce energy use and costs while not reducing your comfort levels. Some of the most well-known brands on the market, such as Carrier and Rudd, make energy-efficient models focused on providing the most efficient performance possible.
  2. Size: Buying the right size HVAC unit for your home is of utmost importance. A unit that is too small will not be able to efficiently heat or cool your home. A unit that is too large will cause you to spend more money than you need to and may not run efficiently. A professional can help size the right HVAC unit for your home.
  3. Price: Like other big purchases, the price is important to keep in mind. While several brands offer good performance (Bryant, Carrier, York, etc.), the prices can vary as can the features offered and the overall design of the HVAC system.
  4. Noise: HVAC systems can be very noisy when in operation and as a system that sees a good deal of use, you have to consider noise. A professional air conditioning contractor will be able to advise on HVAC types and locations to ensure you get the best performance possible without noise intruding on your daily life.
