Reasons to Upgrade Your HVAC System
Most home and business owners may choose to wait on upgrading their HVAC system until it stops working completely. Some even spend a few hundred dollars here and there in the hopes of salvaging their units. But there comes a time when an update becomes a sensible, convenient and cost effective option.
Here are a few reasons why you should upgrade your HVAC system before the warm weather hits.
Aging HVAC system
It is recommended to have your system replaced every 10 to 15 years. Given the price of a new unit, most people are hesitant to replace their system. Yes, you’ll have to pay the initial cost, but buying a new one will allow you to save money over time. Many cooling and heating systems do not work as well after a decade. They become more expensive to operate, need frequent repairs and lose their efficiency after they pass the 10-year mark.
Upgrading your HVAC system allows you to save you money on repairs, as well as on heating and cooling costs. Don’t wait until the system dies before upgrading your system.
Increase energy efficiency
When summer hits, most homeowners would turn on their air conditioner and keep them running day in and day out. With such a huge portion of your home energy devoted to cooling and heating your home, it is great to have a system that allows you to stay comfortable, but for a fraction of the cost of your older model.
Over the past 10 years, the world of HVAC has made impressive technological advancements, which makes modern units more efficient than ever. There are lots of energy efficient models available in the market. This is good for both your wallet and environment.
Improve indoor air quality
Poor indoor air quality is linked to respiratory problems, asthma attacks, allergy attacks, dizziness, nausea, and carbon monoxide poisoning. Sick building syndrome is a real threat to the health of your family. If you or any member of your family have any of the conditions mentioned above, a new HVAC system may be in order.
