5 Signs It’s Time to Replace Your HVAC System

Replace Your HVAC System

As the weather outside gets warmer, controlling your indoor air gets more and more important. We don’t want muggy, hot temperatures inside our homes. We want cool, comfortable, conditioned air, and your comfort system is essential to having it. But, how do you know if you need to replace your HVAC system? Well, if you notice any of these 5 signs, it might be time!

High Bills

Comfort systems are now designed to be more efficient than systems built even 5 years ago. If you’re experiencing higher than normal energy bills, it may be time to upgrade to a newer, more efficient system. Upgrading could even save you up to 50% on your energy bills every month, depending on the system you have now and the system you upgrade to. Check out the systems we offer at Garrison & Garrison for high-efficiency, low energy home comfort.

Uncomfortable Temperatures

If you’ve noticed your system is constantly running without reaching the desired set point on the thermostat, you may need to replace your HVAC system. If your system is working properly, it will cool or heat your home quickly without needing to constantly run. Newer systems built with variable speed fans offer maximum humidity and temperature control at lower operating costs

Old Age

Air conditioners are not meant to last forever, but with proper care and maintenance, your system could last 15 years! However, if your current system is around 10 years old and hasn’t had regular preventative maintenance, you probably experience the need for repairs often, as well as having high energy bills. Replace your HVAC system in this case, and save money in the short run and the long run.

Constant Need for Repairs

As just mentioned, your older unit may be needing constant repairs, but any HVAC system always needing work, no matter the age, should most likely be replaced. If you’re spending more money to fix a system than it would cost to replace it, replacing is the smarter, more economical option. Luckily, when you buy a system from Garrison & Garrison, you’ll have a 10 year warranty on parts and labor when the system has been properly maintained. We also offer a buy-back guarantee so if you’re just not happy with your new system from us, we will buy it back.

Loud Operation

It’s normal for comfort systems to begin making noise as they get older, but some noises aren’t normal and may be a sign that you need to replace your system. Plus, why wouldn’t you want a quiet system to improve your overall comfort? If you hear the following noises, consider replacing your system:

  • A loud humming noise coming from the blower
  • Any loud noises coming from the outdoor unit
  • Banging or groaning of your furnace when operating
  • Loud noise before air conditioner begins operating
