Forsyth, IL can get hot and humid. You will want to make sure your HVAC system is in good working condition. These are four signs you should replace your HVAC this summer.
1. Your HVAC System Is Older Than 10 Years
If your HVAC system is 10 years old or older, you probably need to get a new one as quickly as possible. Older HVAC systems aren’t as energy-efficient as newer ones. Beyond the cost of repairs to keep your older HVAC system working, older HVAC systems end up costing their owners extra in electricity.
You might need certain repairs for your HVAC system throughout the years. However, if you face a costly repair, it might be time to replace your HVAC system. If you hear loud noises coming from your HVAC system, it could be an indication that you will need a major repair.
3. Your HVAC System Still Uses R-22 Refrigerant
HVAC systems used to use R-22. Nowadays, HVAC systems use R-410A, which helps the home to cool down more, it is easier on compressors, and it helps keep HVAC systems from suffering other damages.
4. Your HVAC System Isn’t Meeting Your Needs
Your HVAC system needs to be able to meet the needs of your home. If your HVAC system is too small for your home, it won’t be able to cool everything down. If your HVAC system is too large, your home will feel uncomfortable throughout the day as it speedily heats and cools your home.
Consider whether this is the year you might need a new HVAC system. If you have any of these signs or your system isn’t running the way it should, you should contact Tica, Inc. Heating and Cooling to set up an appointment to check out your system or to install a new one.
