The overall comfort of your home lies in your most expensive appliance, your heating, venting, and air conditioning system. Without a properly working system you could find yourself with no hot or cold air, high energy costs, and in some instances even a dangerous situation like a carbon monoxide leak that could pose risks to your health. If you’re unsure whether or not a new system installation is right for you, read on and consider some of the following.
The Risk of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
You’ve heard the horror stories surrounding carbon monoxide, the deadly gas people breathe in unknowingly. Older furnaces have a greater risk of getting cracks in their heat exchangers, and could allow carbon monoxide into your home.
As a homeowner, you should always be on the lookout for anything that could indicate a carbon monoxide issue including lightheadedness, trouble breathing, strange odors, and higher than usual energy costs.
The earlier you detect the issues, the more quickly you can find a solution. At 4 Seasons Heating and Cooling, LLC we offer reliable inspections and emergency services that are key to keeping your home and family safe. If the issue cannot be repaired, we can also help you with the entire HVAC installation process.
Consider The Age of Your HVAC System
While most homeowners will opt for repairs on their HVAC system, in some instances that simply won’t work. A well-maintained air conditioning system can last anywhere from 10-15 years. Consider replacing your HVAC system if:
- Your energy bills are higher than usual.
- Your system continually needs repairs.
- The indoor air quality is poor.
- You're experiencing low air flow.
- The HVAC system is noisy or producing foul smells.
As you continue to spend more money on repairs, at some point those same costs can go into replacing the unit altogether. This not only helps you save money, but also it provides you with added property value and peace of mind.
Mechanical Failures Prevent System From Working
Your compressor is the power behind your entire HVAC system. Not only does it regulate the temperature of the air coming into your home, but also it works by distributing the air as well.
If that compressor is damaged in any way, you could either find yourself with no air or worse, air that’s hot when it should be cold and vice versa. Like any mechanical system, the motor on your HVAC system should be inspected yearly at the very least.
