If your system is more than 12 years old and giving you trouble you may be considering replacing it. Take a proactive approach and have its performance evaluated by a professional. Replacing an old, inefficient system will save you money each month in electric, and make your home more comfortable. What if just your AC went out? It may be feasible to replace the furnace or the air conditioner only rather than putting in an entirely new system. But replacing components isn’t always the best option. If your system is 12+ years old the new parts may not work together efficiently plus you’ll save significantly on labor if the whole thing is replaced at once. After you have decided to change out your system you have to consider what model and size you want. We always recommend looking for Energy Star models, which are about 10 percent to 15 percent more efficient than standard models. Size is very important as well an oversized unit will cool the house to fast and can cause your unit to shut off prematurely. If your units not big enough it will need to continually run and will not keep up. Want more information? Call your local HVAC professional today and we can walk you through all your options!
