Air Conditioning or Furnace Replacement

As your HVAC unit gets older, its efficiency can decrease dramatically, causing it to become noisier and require repairs more often. If you’re currently spending money on frequent repairs for a unit that’s 7 or more years old, replacing it with a new, more energy efficient HVAC system might make more sense and will definitely lower the cost of your utility bill.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the average life expectancy of a system?

Most systems have a lifetime of 10 to 20 years. As your equipment gets older, its efficiency can decrease dramatically. You may notice that it gets noisier and needs repairs more often. When a unit begins to show its age, you have two choices, overhaul the system or replace it. Because heating and cooling technologies improve over time, a new system designed with newer, more energy-efficient equipment makes sense, especially if your system is 7 or more years old. We can provide a FREE in-home estimate of the cost of a new system as well as a payback schedule that will show you how much money your newer, more efficient system will save you in lower utility bills. Try our HVAC Savings Calculator to see how much you can save with a higher efficiency unit.

 

Will a bigger HVAC unit perform better?

No, you don’t want your air conditioner to be too large. Air conditioners control the comfort level in your home by cooling the air and by removing humidity. An oversized air conditioner can cool your home faster, but it will use more energy and will not remove humidity adequately. In addition, your existing ductwork may not be able to support the airflow of a larger system.

A unit that is too big for your home will have short run cycles. It can take only a short time to cool the air, but the unit shuts off before enough air blows across the indoor coil where moisture condenses into water and drains from your system. Too much moisture left in the air can lead to mold and mildew problems. These short run cycles also mean your system starts and stops more often, which uses more energy and causes a lot of wear and tear. An air conditioner operates more efficiently during long run cycles.

The same holds true with heating systems. An oversized furnace can warm the house quicker, but it uses more fuel and causes greater temperature swings in the home.

 

How can I reduce my energy costs?

Here are some ideas to reduce your energy costs: upgrade to a high-efficiency system, install ceiling fans, schedule annual maintenance check ups, don’t block vents in well-used rooms, close vents in unused rooms, and install a programmable thermostat.
