It's a New Year- How About a New HVAC?

Start the New Year With a New HVAC System!

The New Year is a time for turning over a new leaf, or in some cases, putting in a new HVAC system. Upgrading the HVAC system improves the efficiency, comfort, and air quality of the home. Homeowners might be wary of the costs associated with a new system and want to ensure they replace it only when necessary. The good news is, there are a couple of ways to tell if an HVAC system needs replacing. Once it’s been replaced, some steps can be taken to keep it running in good shape and prevent the need for another replacement any time soon. 

Warning Signs of Impending HVAC Replacement


Age: HVAC systems - both furnaces and air conditioners - have a decade of solid work in them before things start to break down. If maintenance has been spotty, that ten-year lifespan shrinks. Once the system has passed ten years of hard work, it is time to consider replacing it.

Frequent Repairs: As HVAC systems age and experience wear and tear associated with use, they require more repairs. Once repairs are needed more than once every few years, it’s time to consider replacing the system. 

Strange Noises: If the air conditioner makes peculiar banging sounds or the furnace is screeching, something has gone wrong in the HVAC system. While the cause of these noises can occasionally be repaired, they are usually an audible sign that the system is wearing down and will need to be replaced soon. 

Overworked: Is the air conditioning constantly kicking on to cool the house, but the temps stay hot? Or does the furnace keep turning on while rooms stay cold and drafty? The HVAC system is likely failing and struggling to keep up with the demands of the home. The best solution is typically a replacement of the system. 

Check the Unit Size

Has the home undergone an extension or remodel? Have the needs of the home’s heating and cooling not been met lately? The size of the HVAC units might be to blame. When home’s are updated with new technology, be it an air conditioner to an older home or a new addition to the house, very seldom does the original HVAC system keep up. 

Often, a larger system will need to be installed. This might include new ductwork to handle the additions to the home or circulate the air conditioning and furnace appropriately. Furnaces and air conditioners may need to be installed with more extensive heating and cooling capacities to handle the new demands. 

Keep up System Maintenance

Once a new system is installed, homeowners want to keep it running for as long and efficiently as possible to save money and maintain their new investment. The answer to a long-lasting HVAC system is no secret - it requires regular maintenance.

During annual maintenance, an HVAC technician will investigate any problems, fix them, and give the units any fluids, filters, or cleaning it needs. Having the furnace and air conditioner inspected at least once a year (preferably before a change of season) ensures that homeowners won’t be surprised by a failing unit. More importantly, annual maintenance prevents any problems that come up with system negligence. 

Investing in a new HVAC system will bring the home a new level of comfort to ring in the New Year.
