Signs Your HVAC System May Need Replacing

Worried that your HVAC system may need replacing? If so, you’re not alone. Most homeowners choose to wait until their system fails completely before replacing it. With the typical HVAC system’s average lifespan ranging from 10 to 15 years, you may already be rolling the dice when it comes to continued usage of your HVAC system past its lifespan.

Signs Your HVAC System Needs Replacement

Some of the earliest signs that your system is wearing out is a motor failure and refrigerant leaks. A heat exchanger on an older unit within a gas furnace often develops cracks, or a compressor in the outdoor unit will short out. These components can result in costly repairs.

When a pattern of repairs begins to happen, it’s probably time to start budgeting for a new unit. And a replacement can not only prevent you from having to deal with an unexpected system failure, but it can also help save you precious money each month on your energy bill.

Time For a New Unit

The U.S. federal government encourages homeowners to switch over to HVAC systems that are more energy efficient by offering energy tax credits. The credit extends to 30% of the annual project cost of a furnace, boiler, or central air conditioner up to $600 as the maximum amount credited annually. Heat pumps are subject to a higher annual total limit of $2,000 starting in 2023 and ending in 2032.

As a proud authorized dealer of American Standard HVAC products, including HVAC systems and heat pumps, Bruce’s Air Conditioning & Heating experts can help you choose the right system for your home.

Today’s HVAC systems, composed of both an air conditioning and a heating system, have many new features that improve their energy efficiency. These include variable speed fans, two stage compressors, and automatic temperature control. Along with improving your home’s energy efficiency and eliminating the need for costly repairs, a new system can be installed with indoor air quality improvements that can be especially helpful if you or your family suffer from allergies, asthma, or other breathing difficulties. A high-efficiency air cleaner can remove dust, pet dander, and other airborne pollutants from your indoor air to create a healthier, more comfortable living environment.
