Learn more about these warning signs in today’s post.
Heating and Air Conditioning System Warning Signs
Check if your heating and air conditioning system is more than 10 to 15 years old. If the system is this old, we recommend replacing it as soon as possible. These days, HVAC systems have better energy efficiency ratings are commonplace, giving you better performance for each watt of electricity consumed. When choosing a system, look for the ENERGY STAR® seal because such units are held to a federal standard of performance.
Next, observe your energy bills and see if they have recently increased in the last two or three months. Increased energy bills can be the result of decreased HVAC performance. Call us for an inspection if you want to be sure. You can also check if some rooms in your home are unnaturally cold or hot, which indicates a faulty heating and cooling system. And in relation to that, if any particular room shows humidity problems (such as excessive condensation on window panes), this might be caused by inadequate HVAC equipment and leaky ductwork.
The bottom line is, if you find yourself constantly repairing your unit, it might make more sense to replace your current system with a more reliable one. Furthermore, constant repairs can be expensive, which could add up in the long run.
