As temperatures continue to drop, make sure you are prepared for the winter season with an HVAC system that is in top-notch condition. Here are three signs it’s time to upgrade your heating unit.
High Heating Bills
Heating units contain various critical components that keep your home warm. Over time, these parts become more inefficient, therefore increasing your bill. Upgrading your system may save you money in the long run. Consider replacing your HVAC unit, especially if it’s over 15 years old.
There are a number of sounds that heaters begin to make that let you know it’s time for a replacement. Scraping, clanging, chirping, or humming can mean there is some damage. Though it could signify something like a clogged filter, it could be something more serious that is too expensive or too dangerous to just repair.
Short Cycling or Running Too Long
If your system is cutting on and off for short periods of time, it may be short cycling. This is often caused by an overheated system, which creates inefficient heating. On the other hand, if your unit is running more than 10-15 minutes at a time, your system could have an internal malfunction that can create extra wear and tear over time.
