We are now officially two years into the second decade of the 21st century — how much of the 21st century has your heating and cooling system been around for? If the current furnace, boiler, air conditioner, or heat pump in your Pittsburg area home was keeping your home comfortable in the 90’s, an HVAC upgrade this year may bring a surprising amount of comfort and energy savings!
Here is what you need to know about replacing your home heating and cooling systems for maximum efficiency and year-round comfort.
HVAC Replacement: When Is the Right Time?
When you find yourself in a situation where your furnace won’t turn on or your air conditioner has broken down, it’s easy to come to the conclusion that it’s time for an upgrade. However, for most heating and cooling systems, wear and tear happens slowly over the two-plus decades that these systems are expected to last. This slow deterioration is hard to detect, as your home comfort slowly decreases and your energy costs incrementally increase.
If you are looking for signs that it’s time to replace your furnace, boiler, or air conditioner, keep an eye out for these symptoms over the life of your system :
- An uncomfortable home
- Unpleasant odors coming from air vents
- Furnace or AC that never seems to turn off
- Rising energy bills
The Best Time for HVAC Replacement
If you have an underperforming HVAC system, it can be tough to determine if it makes more financial sense to repair it, or just replace it.
Is It Worth Repairing Your HVAC System?
Consider these questions before deciding to repair or replace your home heating and cooling, or just call Calfo!
- How old is your system?
- How many times has it been repaired?
- What is the total cost of repairs compared to replacement?
- How much could you save monthly with a more efficient system?
At Calfo, our team is trained and qualified to assess whether your equipment is properly sized for your home, and whether the efficiency you’ll gain from a new furnace, boiler, heat pump, or air conditioner will outweigh the upfront costs.
What Time of Year is Best?
If you are not in a dire need of immediate HVAC replacement, then perhaps a little scheduling flexibility can work to your advantage. By scheduling your heat pump installation, furnace replacement, or AC installation for late spring or early fall, you will have more convenient scheduling options and you will not need to go without heat during a time when you need it the most!
Plus, you can take advantage of your new furnace efficiency for the entirety of the heating season, saving you more in the long run.
