Your comfort may depend on how efficient your HVAC / Cooling and Heating system is. It is also perhaps the most costly appliance installed in your house. Therefore it is natural for you to feel confused on whether you need to replace your HVAC system or not when it breaks down.
Reasons for replacing your old air and heating / HVAC System
A central air-conditioning system has a typical lifespan of 15 to 20 years. Therefore you could expect certain amount of life from your HVAC system if it’s below 12 years and has not had any big breakdowns. But if your system is giving you problems and is no longer functioning correctly, it may be time to replace it. Here are a few reasons why you may need to replace an old HVAC system.
- The most important reason for replacing an older HVAC is energy efficiency, which plays a big role in reducing the utility bills. The newer energy efficent air and heating systems use 30 to 50 percent less energy and provide the same heating or cooling effect.
- Another reason for replacing your HVAC system is that older systems have a higher chance of breaking down and possibly at the wrong times leaving you feeling uncomfortable and helpless during the hot summers or cold winters.
- Safety is the last and one of the most important reasons for replacing your older HVAC or heating and cooling system (which is more than 12 years old). Your old furnace might get a crack in the heat exchanger. This contains a potentially fatal gas-carbon monoxide.
