The New Year may be around the corner, but your heating & air conditioning system still has to keep your home warm for a few more months before spring arrives. The last thing you want is for your heating system to unexpectedly quit during the night, requiring an emergency repair.
To avoid a worst case scenario, keep an eye out for these 4 signs it is time to replace your home heating system:
The simplest way to avoid your heating system quitting unexpectedly is replacing it before it is too old. Heating and air conditioning experts recommend homeowners replace their heat pump every 10 years and their furnace every 15 years.
In some cases, your heating system may only need a repair if it is unable to heat your entire home. However, this is frequently a first sign that your heat pump or furnace is on its way out.
If your energy bills continue to increase steadily over time, you may want to consider replacing it with a new, more energy efficient unit.
If you feel like the HVAC repairman visits more than your parents, this could be a sign that your unit doesn’t have much life left. Stop spending money on repairs, which probably won’t prevent total system failure anyway, and opt for a replacement instead.
