When is it Time to Replace My Central Heating Air Conditioning?

DEC 31, 2020

Even with regular maintenance and care, HVAC systems don't last forever. When your system gets older, it can cost more to run and lead to hazardous conditions. If you're wondering, "Should I replace my heater, AC, or boiler?", we'll help you answer that below.

Should I Replace My Heating & AC System?

You'll know it's time to replace AC, replace boiler, or replace heating system if you're experiencing any of the below situations.

Your System Runs Too Often

If your AC, furnace, or boiler always seems to be running, that's definitely a sign your system is on its last legs. When components aren't working correctly, the system has to run constantly to get air to your desired temperature, raising your energy bill.

Electric,Natural Gas or Oil Bills Going Up & Up?

Noticing your utility bills going up & up? Everything gets older including your heating & Air Conditioning equipment. As components degrade, especially all heat exchangers such as heater and AC coils and components, they are not able to transfer heat. This results in longer inefficient run times and an increased use of power and fuel.

Your System Is Noisy

HVAC systems shouldn't be loud or clunky. If they are, that's a sign there's a major problem. While the system may just need a tune-up, it can also mean it's heater replacement time.

The Temperature Isn't Consistent

Every room in your home should be the same temperature. If you're noticing that some rooms seem extremely cold or warm, it's probably because your system isn't distributing treated air correctly.

Your HVAC System Requires Frequent Repairs

Repairs & Breakdowns? If you are needing to replace parts or have other repairs made at every HVAC maintenance appointment, you would be better served to replace the system. It may cost more upfront, but it will save big in the long run.

Heating or Cooling Doesn't Work                                                                        Unreliable? Both the heating and cooling features of your HVAC system should work without a problem. If they don't, it's a sign you may need to replace heat pump or the AC unit.

Your System Is Over 10 Years Old

In general, most HVAC systems have a longevity of about 10 years. The great news is, systems keep getting more and more efficient, so each time you upgrade, you're bound to see an improvement in energy costs.

Your Carbon Monoxide Levels Are Too High

One of the most dangerous things that can happen if you neglect your HVAC is that your heating system can leak carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide poisoning can kill you, so it's important to get a heating system replacement right away.

Your Home Is Too Humid

When the ductwork in your HVAC system isn't working right, air can become too humid during the summer and too dry in the winter. This may even cause water damage.

Your Home Is Too Dusty

Again, if your ducts aren't in good condition, they can pick up dust from the basement or attic and spread it to other parts of your home.

You're Experiencing Electrical Shortages

Tripping Circuit Breakers Occasionally? Another extremely dangerous issue is an HVAC system that causes electric shortages. When this happens, it can start a fire or explosion that may quickly consume your home.
