HVAC systems have become commonplace in most homes and offices. However, as with any other system, these air conditioners tend to break down for several reasons such as aging or poor maintenance. Your old HVAC might still be in good condition, but it is just a matter of time before it starts to malfunction.
To avoid any disappointments, and keep the air in your space flowing, you are advised to replace it as soon as calls to the repair guy become one too many. Here are five reasons why you need to replace your old HVAC system.
Air conditioners have an average lifespan of about 10-15 years while HVAC systems last for a maximum of 15 years. However, how long your air conditioning system can last entirely depends on how well you take care of it. You have to replace the filters and enlist a professional HVAC service to keep your system in good shape.
Failure to maintain your system regularly will result in its premature end and you will have no other option but to replace it. Aging systems are not only inefficient but also costly in the long term. With this in mind, investing in an energy-efficient system is your surest bet to cutting down on your energy bills
Improved Efficiency and Comfort
New HVAC systems are designed to meet specific energy efficiency requirements, unlike older versions that do not have an efficiency rating. By investing in a new system, you should expect to experience improved efficiency and comfort. These systems are capable of controlling the temperature in individual rooms to fit your specific requirements.
Smart Device Integration
HVAC systems have gone digital. With advancements in technology, you can now devices such as smart thermostats and smart apps to program your HVAC system to heat or cool your space accordingly. This can go a long way to prevent wastage of energy and cut down on your power bills. However, this is only possible if you have a compatible HVAC system.
Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
The essence of installing an HVAC system is to manage and improve the quality of air in your space. HVAC systems work by ventilating, regulating and maintaining the temperature and humidity levels at acceptable levels. Unfortunately, older HVAC cannot meet the demands of the modern home hence it is only logical that you buy a new air conditioning system.
Increased Home Resale Value
Prospective homebuyers normally consider the age and condition of the HVAC systems, and how much it could cost to repair or replace it. In case you intend to sale your home in future, you can confidently quote a higher asking price if you have a modern HVAC system installed in the building.
Let’s face it–HVAC systems do not come cheaply. However, running an old and outdated heating and air conditioning system in your premise can turn out to be more expensive than buying a new one. You have to contend with higher energy bills as well as poor indoor air quality.
