It is spring and a warm summer is on the way. This means it may be time to upgrade your HVAC system. There are signs that your HVAC system is in dire need of an upgrade. It is in your best interests to decide when it is time for an upgrade. It can be costly to repair heating and cooling systems and knowing when it is time for an upgrade will help you save time and money.
Signs your air conditioner may be failing:
Repairs are becoming increasingly frequent
Heating and cooling system repairs are common in North Myrtle Beach. It’s a good idea for you to contact your local HVAC contractor if the frequency of repairs is increasing. Sometimes the repair costs are not justified. Talk to your HVAC contractor about the best way to proceed. Upgrades may cost more, but a newer system won’t need repairs and is more energy efficient.
Indoor air quality quickly becomes a problem
If indoor air isn’t under control, it can quickly become dangerous and unhealthy to breathe. Research has shown that indoor pollution can be worse than outside pollution. HVAC systems filter the air as it passes through. Contact your local HVAC contractor if indoor air quality is an issue. A malfunctioning HVAC system could be the cause.
The HVAC system is not maintaining a comfortable temperature inside your home
As your HVAC system ages, its efficiency will decrease. Maintenance is crucial to keep your heating and air system in top shape. Even with regular maintenance, your system may become less efficient over time. Consider upgrading your system if your system becomes inefficient despite regular preventative maintenance.
Strange sounds are heard coming from the system
In some cases, you may hear unusual sounds coming from your system. These sounds should be reported immediately so that they don’t become more frequent. North Myrtle Beach Heating & Air can inspect the system. Sometimes the problem can be caused by wear and tear of certain components.
This unit is more than 10 years old
If your HVAC system is more than 10 years old, you might want to replace it. There are many newer, more efficient models available. It’s more cost-effective to upgrade than to maintain and repair your current model.
