If you want your home to stay cool during the hot summer months in Tucson, AZ, you’ll want to make sure your HVAC is updated and functioning at its best.
Poor Cooling Performance
You may notice your HVAC system doesn’t make the home as cool as it used to, and some rooms may not be as cool as others, which is a sign it may need to be updated with a newer model.
HVAC Is More Than 10 Years Old
Just like other appliances, HVAC systems wear out over time. HVAC systems that are at least 10 years old have reached the end of their lifespan and need to be replaced.
You may notice that your HVAC system continues to have issues and develops problems, which can lead to calling a technician to perform the repairs throughout the warmer months of the year. It can cost more to continue to repair the HVAC system rather than replacing it with a newer unit. A new system often saves significantly on energy bills.
High Energy Costs
You may notice that your HVAC system is costing more to run and operate even if it hasn’t been used more frequently. The higher energy costs mean the system is working harder to operate. It may even be running continuously and not shutting off when it’s supposed to.
Leaks and Odors
Leaks and odors are common in older units that are beginning to have issues. Check for water leaking out of the unit or unusual smells to determine if it’s time to update to a newer HVAC system.
If you want to stay cool during the warmer months of the year and avoid potential issues that can develop, it’s important to update your air conditioner if there are multiple signs or significant problems. Call us at Crest Air to schedule an appointment for an inspection and to determine if your unit can still be effective or if it would be wiser to invest in a new heating and cooling system.
