Age

The age of your HVAC system will affect a multitude of factors determining whether or not you should replace your system. The average lifespan of an HVAC system is 10-15 years, so when your system begins to have difficulties as it ages, it may not be worth fixing. If your system is 10 years or older, you should consider replacing your system.

Efficiency

When you replace your system, its efficiency will most likely improve as well. Everything advances over time and HVAC systems are no exception. Energy efficiency ratings, or SEER ratings, are constantly improving. The higher your system’s SEER rating, the more efficient your system will be! So, if you choose to replace your system you can rest assured that your efficiency will improve with it.

Rising Utility Bills

It’s normal for utility bills to fluctuate throughout the year due to seasons. However, if you begin to notice an increase in your utility bills in the same months, throughout different years, that’s a cause for concern. Rising utility bills are a clear indicator that your system is no longer performing at peak efficiency and needs attention NOW! A JD Service technician will be able to determine if your system is salvageable.

Inconsistent Temperatures

Everyone wants to be comfortable when they’re inside their home. The unfortunate reality of an aging system is you will begin to experience inconsistent temperatures throughout your space. While your system is struggling to heat or cool your home, it will be forced to overwork, and cycle more frequently to reach the desired temperature. This will be reflected on your utility bills. Our JD Service Now technicians will always be glad to take a look and determine the issue at fault.

Indoor Air Quality

It’s no secret the impact your HVAC system has on your home’s indoor air quality. Your HVAC system filters and delivers air throughout your home. As your system ages, leaks may develop in your ductwork allowing excess dust and debris from your attic to filter into your home’s air. Indoor air quality is extremely important to your family’s health and the overall health of your home.

If you begin to experience any of these issues, our JD Service Now team would be glad to TAKE CARE OF IT. Replacing your HVAC system will give our team a call today for any HVAC problems you may have (919) 617-5033.
