• Now is the Time to Replace Your HVAC Unit

    Water leaks

    Many states experienced very hot summers this year. The heat is beginning to cool and people are beginning to prepare for the fall months. It might not seem like it, but now is the perfect time to inspect and if needed, replace your air conditioning unit. Most HVAC units need repair at the beginning of the season, which can cause you to wait for many hot weeks. An air conditioning unit should be properly winterized and prepared for next summer, as soon as possible. It is also a great time to replace the entire unit, if needed. Additionally, replacing your entire HVAC unit can increase the functionality and efficiency of your heat systems, for the coming winter months.

    You may need to replace your home?s heating system if it is more than 12 to 15 years old, requires frequent repairs, does not supply sufficient warmth, cycles on and off irregularly, consumes increasing amounts of energy and emits unusual noises. Many of the same rules apply to replacing your cooling unit, as well. A new HVAC unit can increase productivity, working more efficiently, and costing you less in energy bills. Additionally, you will be more comfortable with the increased heat during the winter and the increased air during the summer.

    It is important to prepare your HVAC unit for the season, prior to the hot or cold season. For example, if you were to wait until the spring to replace your HVAC unit, you may be left with no AC unit for a few of the warmer months of spring. If you need to wait for new HVAC unit parts to come in, you might be waiting months. Replacing your AC unit with a new HAV unit at the end of the year gives you much more time to prepare. You may also find discounts on both the service fees and the cost of the new HVAC unit.

    The same thought goes for the replacement of the heating portion of the HVAC unit. Some HVAC experts say up to 75% of no heat calls in the winter are related to a lack of maintenance. Left un serviced, a furnace can stop working suddenly, leaving your family in the cold. The furnace should actually be inspected twice a year, once at the beginning of the winter and once, at the end of the long winter season. The inspection prior to winter should not be for maintenance or for replacement, but rather for an inspection to ensure that it is ready to work properly and efficiently. A HVAC company is a great resource for the HVAC repair, the HVAC inspection and for installing a cooling system that is more efficient and reliable than the one that you currently have.

    Many home and property owners will also find that they save money after replacing their HVAC units. Older HVAC units must work harder, taking more electricity in order to effectively cool or heat the home. They may not work very well, and yet they still cost a lot in terms of energy costs. Newer HVAC units are designed differently, and many property owners will see a decrease in their energy bills with higher efficiency rates.

    The summer is winding down and now is the perfect time to service and potentially replace your HVAC unit. You will have a few weeks where you will not need the air conditioning or the heating unit. This is the perfect window of time to have repairs and replacements done. Waiting much longer will leave you and your family out in the cold, or in the heat. A new HVAC unit can increase efficiency, working better, while also saving the property owner money on energy costs.
