Signs You Need Heating & Cooling Replacement
Temperatures are rising around the world, creating extreme weather conditions. Because of this, your heating and cooling systems work overtime to ensure your comfort, which can lead to premature system failure.
If you think your HVAC system isn’t working as effectively as before, it may be time to replace it.
Here’s what to look for.
Increased Running Time
As your system gets older, you may find that it starts up more often and stays on longer than before to provide you with the correct temperature.
It could be that your coils are bad or the blower motor is failing. But, if the system still suffers from this problem after repairs, it’s time to replace it.
It’s normal for your heater or furnace to make noise when running, but you shouldn’t hear unusual sounds like banging, grinding, or squealing. If you do, call a technician to diagnose the problem.
Increased Repair Frequency
Many of the parts in your HVAC system are replaceable, but all systems wear out eventually. If a major component fails, like the compressor or motor, it’s usually more cost-effective to replace the entire unit than to fix it.
If you keep your heating and cooling system well-maintained, it should last a decade or longer. However, beyond the ten-year mark, you can expect your HVAC system to become more and more costly to repair.
The HVAC technology of today’s systems outclasses systems of ten years ago, so it’s better to invest in a new unit than to throw money at keeping your current one running another season.
Replacing your air conditioner or heating system is expensive, but installing a more efficient and reliable unit will save money on energy costs and repair bills.

Our Maintenance Service
Because your heating and cooling system is an expensive home investment, it’s in your best interest to keep it in top condition and run as long as possible.
However, many people ignore annual system maintenance to the detriment of the system.
Here are the benefits you get from routine maintenance.
It Saves You Money
A heating or cooling system loses efficiency as it gets older, sometimes up to 5% a year, which means it consumes more energy to do its job. Greater consumption of energy means higher energy bills for you.
Routine maintenance and tune-ups keep your energy bills in line.
It Saves Your Warranty
Every new air conditioner comes with a manufacturer’s warranty to guard against defects. However, most warranties stipulate that you must keep up with annual maintenance for the company to honor it.
The last thing you’d want is to have to pay out of pocket for a significant repair or replacement because of a problem that a tune-up would have caught.
It Gives You Peace of Mind
When you turn on your heater or air conditioner, you don’t want to worry about whether it will work. With routine maintenance, you get peace of mind knowing that it will work, and your family will be comfortable regardless of the temperature outside.
