1. Your System is More Than 10 Years Old
An older system is more prone to breaking down, the older it gets, the more prone to these issues it becomes. Repairing a system that is more than 10 years old will only temporarily fix the issue. It’ll only be a matter of time before something else breaks requiring more repairs. This repairing cycle becomes more and more frequent until you have no option but to replace your system.
If your system is older and uses R-22 Freon we strongly recommend replacing your system. The United States Environment Protection Agency is continuing to phaseout all R-22 Refrigerants. By January 2020 they will be removed completely which means no import or production. This makes fixing repairs more difficult.

2.Your Equipment Needs Frequent Repairs
If you’ve noticed that small issues keep arising with your system, it might be a bigger issue revealing itself. Major components such as your compressor or air handler need to be replaced over time. One of the benefits of HVAC replacement is that newer units can significantly reduce monthly costs in both repairs and energy bills.
3. Your Energy Bills are Going Up
Have your energy bills increased with no explanation or reason behind it? This may be a sign that your air conditioner or heater needs more power to do the same amount of work. This is usually caused by inefficient and/or worn out parts which require more energy to do their job. This problem continues to become bigger throughout the years which leads to more energy being used up. Older units tend to burn more fuel to make up for their inefficiencies. This results in an increased carbon footprint of your house and higher bills. Recent advances is AC technology have greatly improved energy efficiency within new HVAC Systems.
4. Your HVAC System is Noisy
Older models that begin exhibiting more noise when turned on can indicate needing replacement. Air conditioning coil issues or undersized ducts can also make a system noisy. Newer HVAC systems are designed with considerable noise reduction.
5. Temperatures in Your Home Fluctuate
Uneven temperatures can be a sign that your system is having difficulty keeping a consistent temperature throughout your entire house. This could be due to numerous issues like and inaccurate thermostat, a damaged thermostat, clogged filters, motor damage, cracked ducts, low fluid levels and many more complications.
