Sometimes a quick fix won’t help an HVAC system that has outlived its time. Pay attention for certain signs that indicate it might be time to replace it instead of trying to repair it.
- Frequent repairs
- Increased energy bills
- Rooms are too hot or cold
- Humidity is an issue
- Excessive dust inside
- HVAC system is louder than usual
These are a few signs that the HVAC system may need replaced with a newer model. Along with these, if the heat pump or AC has been around for 10 years or more, it should probably be replaced. Also, furnaces or boilers more than 15 years old frequently need to be updated as well.
Age doesn’t always mean it’s time to replace the HVAC system. If maintained properly they can last for quite a long time. By having routine maintenance and inspections, homeowners will know how their system is performing and if it’s time to get a new one.
Before going out and buying one, call Diamond Heating and Cooling. They can determine what the issue is and if the system really needs replaced or just repaired.
