Time and use will eventually take a toll on your HVAC system. This will affect performance and lead to a loss of efficiency and money. If you find that your system needs frequent repairs and is not providing the level of indoor comfort you need, then it’s time to consider a replacement. An upgrade of your HVAC system can increase savings and comfort in your Semmes, AL home.
Most well-kept HVAC systems will only operate efficiently for up to 10 years. Even if you’ve kept up on your preventive maintenance, switched out air filters regularly, and kept your system clean, your heating and cooling system will still deteriorate over time. As the system ages, it needs to work harder to maintain the level of comfort to which you’ve become accustomed. This causes the system to lose efficiency and increase your energy bills. Upgrading your HVAC system will restore heating and cooling efficiency.
Since the time that your HVAC system was installed, it’s likely that new technology has been introduced. These technologies are generally designed to increase the efficiency and performance of your system. For example, programmable thermostats allow you to effectively manage temperatures day and night according to your schedule. This ensures more efficient use of your HVAC system so that it doesn’t waste energy. Other technology like more advanced filters, air purifiers, and various system components will help to make your HVAC system more efficient.
While upgrading your system comes with a cost, the money you save on energy over time will make up for that cost. Remember, though, that if other parts of your system are inefficient, an upgrade will only do so much. Invest in annual maintenance so that ductwork, filters, and other components can be properly assessed. When all parts of your system are in good condition, you will get more bang for your buck.
