Why You Should Upgrade Your HVAC

when to replace your air conditioner

Would you like to make your Philadelphia home more comfortable while also saving money each month on utility bills? If so, you should consider upgrading your HVAC.

HVAC units don’t last forever, and if yours is at least 10 years old, its days are numbered. Don’t continue to put off the inevitable. Either you will make the decision to switch to a new model, or your old unit will make the decision for you.

Once you make the change, you’ll be glad that you did for at least three principal reasons:

  • A newer model will easily keep your home at the proper temperature
  • A newer model will save you money on utility bills
  • A newer model will be smaller and quieter than your old unit

Achieve Better Heating and Cooling Comfort

Your HVAC system represents the best technology available at the time of its construction. However, time doesn’t stand still, and neither does technology. You probably recognize the need to upgrade your outdated smartphone, laptop, or even automobile, but it’s not too uncommon for homeowners to forget to regularly monitor their HVAC.

Continuing to use your older heating and cooling unit will cost your family comfort. An older unit will struggle to keep up with the demands of a Philadelphia winter and summer. You may have noticed that it takes much longer than it used to for your HVAC to make your home comfortable.

As the parts wear down, the system will have to work longer and harder in an attempt to achieve the desired temperature inside your home. So, not only is your system past its prime but now it’s being asked to work even harder than it did when it was new. That’s the kind of circumstance that paves the way to catastrophic failure during a snowstorm or heatwave.

Save Money On Utility Bills

Of course, purchasing a new HVAC unit will cost money, but in the long run, you should enjoy significant savings. In fact, you’ll likely notice a significant reduction in your electric and/or natural gas bills the first full month after the new system is installed.

Improvements in technology allow new systems to work more efficiently than their predecessors worked. That means that they need less energy from electricity and natural gas to achieve the same level of heating and cooling as the older models.

Get Good Looks Plus Peace and Quiet

The first thing you’ll notice about modern HVAC units is how small they are compared to your present unit. The small size offers you more options about where to install it. You also will have an easier time choosing the proper landscaping details such as fencing or hedging to hide the unit from view.

But it gets even better. The new models are also much quieter than the old ones, offering improved comfort not only in regard to your home’s temperature but also for its sound level.

If you’ve found it difficult to sit near the window closest to your old outdoor unit, you’ll appreciate the low noise level created by today’s models. Even the best of the older units created more noise than the typical modern-day system. And when those older models age, they produce even more noise especially when they cycle on and off.

Making a change can be difficult even when we know it’s the right thing to do. Sometimes it’s easier if we discuss the matter with someone who has the needed experience.
