Have you scheduled a tuneup for your HVAC system yet? Changed the air filter? The last entry focused on the importance of a fall tuneup, especially after the hot Dayton summer we just experienced. However, it’s also important to determine when it’s time to buy a new model. Today we’ll examine three ways to know when to purchase a new heating or air conditioning system. #1: High Electric Bills Inefficiency is one of the biggest indicators that a system is beginning to fail. Deciding to keep an inefficient or outdated HVAC system can be a costly decision. According to ENERGY STAR, you can save up to $200 annually on energy bills by replacing old heating and cooling equipment. #2: Constant Need for Repairs Do you have an HVAC technician on speed dial? If your system frequently needs repairs, it’s likely time for a replacement. Air conditioner or furnace repairs are expensive. They also indicate that the system isn’t performing well. #3: Unreliable Performance While a malfunctioning HVAC system is costly, it’s also inconvenient — and potentially dangerous. For example, it’s not abnormal for Dayton, OH, to have several days below freezing in the winter. When the temperatures hover so low, it’s important to know that the heat will turn on when you need it. The last thing you want is a furnace that quits on the coldest night of the season.
