Is It Time to Replace Your HVAC System?
A reliable air conditioning system is essential to any home or business, but nothing lasts forever. Even at its peak, HVAC systems require regular maintenance to operate effectively. High-quality heating and cooling systems typically need replacing after 15-20 years of faithful service. In a warm and tropical climate like Southwest Florida, this lifetime can be reduced to 10-15 years depending on the property.
How can you tell if your HVAC system needs replacing? Our friendly experts can thoroughly inspect your property's system to determine the problem and recommend an effective solution. Common signs it’s time to replace your HVAC system include:
- Compressor failure
- Skyrocketing energy bills
- Drastic increase in dust around your home
- Visible corrosion or leaks around the condenser
- Odd sounds or loud noises from your HVAC system
- Difficulty achieving a comfortable, consistent temperature
- Repairs that total more than 50% of HVAC replacement costs
MYTH #1: BIGGER IS BETTER.
Fact: More size, also expressed as tonnage, will not equate to better cooling or reduced energy bills. In fact, a unit that is too large for your property may perform worse, if it starts and stops more frequently. Instead, what matters most is having your technician perform a Manual J load calculation. This will identify the correctly sized air conditioning unit for your needs. Learn More.
MYTH #2: SEER RATING IS ALL THAT MATTERS FOR ENSURING EFFICIENCY.
Fact: While a SEER rating is a good gauge of potential efficiency, a bad installation is a far bigger indicator of efficiency and expected lifespan than your SEER rating. Other factors also impact efficiency, such as the status of your equipment, how clean or dirty the ductwork is, and whether your air filter is clogged enough to inhibit airflow. Learn More.
MYTH #3: MAINTENANCE IS ONLY IMPORTANT WHEN I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH MY AIR CONDITIONER.
Fact: This is one of the most dangerous myths that Pro-Tec encounters. But maintenance should be proactive, not reactive because waiting for problems will cost you twice in money and comfort. Additionally, most major air conditioning brands will not honor your warranty if it is not being serviced yearly. Finally, ignoring regular maintenance takes years off the life of your system. It’s the difference between a unit that lasts 8 to 12 years at best, instead of the typical 15 to 20 years. Learn More.
MYTH #4 : IT’S A WASTE OF MONEY TO REPLACE AN AIR CONDITIONER BEFORE IT DIES.
Fact: If your air conditioner is on its last legs, it’s not operating anywhere near maximum efficiency. That’s going to cost you money and comfort when it breaks down, which usually happens during the first unbearably hot days of the spring or early summer. There’s a rush for installations and service during these days, resulting in delays while you’re waiting for service. It’s not worth the risk.
If it’s close to dying, you will have to replace it eventually anyway. Why not start saving on utility costs now instead of later? Equipment only gets more expensive year to year, so the replacement will increase in price with each passing year. Speak with your trusted air conditioning partner to figure out when it makes the most sense to replace your existing equipment. Learn More.
