Giving Your HVAC a Break

HVAC systems are always working hard, so they need to be well maintained and eventually replaced. How do you know when it’s time to replace your HVAC unit? Here are some certain ways to know.

An HVAC system can last for up to 15 years with no issues. However, once your system has exceeded its life expectancy, things can go wrong: decreased airflow quality, wasted energy and an overall uncomfortable living environment. A defective HVAC unit won’t run efficiently. Referencing your energy bills can also be a definite way of identifying a problem with your HVAC system. If you are paying significantly more on your energy bill, there is a good chance that something is wrong. Increased spending often means your system is overworking and wearing itself down. An overworked system is at risk of cracking, burning or breaking.

Whether it’s in the summer or the winter, if your home’s temperature uncomfortable it may be a sign of a failing system. This may be accompanied by unusual smells or sounds coming from your HVAC unit. Things like faulty wiring can be to blame, so you’ll want to get your unit checked immediately.
