Many HVAC systems can last and operate for an average of 10 to 15 years before they experience issues and need replacing. Although the appliance may require repair on occasion, there will come a time when you need to replace it. Here are a few of the top signs that indicate it’s time to invest in a new HVAC system for your Farmington, AR, home:
Although HVAC units generate a minimal amount of noise when they’re in use, they can become louder with age. Some common sounds to listen for include humming sounds from the blower or a lot of noise from the outdoor unit. The furnace may begin to groan or bang, or you may notice a bit of noise before the air conditioner turns on each time.
As a homeowner, it’s normal to perform different repairs from time to time on your HVAC unit. But if you notice you’re calling a service technician out to fix the issues every few months, it’s a sign that the appliance has reached the end of its lifespan. The parts may no longer be reliable and can begin to break down with age, which may make it more cost-effective to install a new HVAC unit.
Increased Running Time
One of the most common signs it’s time to replace your HVAC system is if it continues to turn on more frequently throughout the day. Older appliances can have bad coils and may also have a failing blower motor, which needs to be inspected by a professional service technician before you choose to move forward with purchasing a new HVAC unit.
