How can you tell when it is time to replace your home’s HVAC unit this summer?  At River View Heating & Cooling, we often hear this question. It is an investment to get a new HVAC system, and homeowners want to know when they should finally make that call. Summer is a great time to consider replacing your HVAC system. Here are three ways your HVAC might be telling you it is time to replace your unit or simply upgrade.

How Long Have You Had Your Current HVAC Unit?

Most HVAC units have an expected life of around 15 to 20 years. Good maintenance can help push the lifespan of your system. However, if you have an older unit, it may be time to consider purchasing a new one. River View Heating & Cooling provides estimates for new HVAC system installations.

Rising Costs Associated to HVAC Units

Expensive and constant breakdowns signal that your HVAC unit should be replaced. You probably want to know when the cost of a repair becomes too high to where the cost outweighs the benefit. First, this depends on the age of the current unit and the cost of a new one. Regardless of age, if the cost of replacing comes out to be 50% of the cost to buy a new one, you should usually purchase new unit instead.

Also, you should factor in the age of your furnace as older units breakdown more often. In all, repairs usually snowball into bigger and bigger repairs as the HVAC unit grows old.

Higher Energy Bills

Also, if you have noticed that your heating and cooling bills shoot up more often now, this price jump could signal that you should replace your HVAC system. Your system may run less efficiently now than it did when you first had it installed. Thus, slowly over the years, you may be losing out on thousands of dollars by not repairing it now. While you may not care in the short run about a few dollars here and there, a switch to a better HVAC system can lead to a happier life in the long run! Now, you may be wondering where you can get a new system installed. Who can you possibly trust with such as an important job?
