Technology has transformed the way we heat and cool our homes. Today’s HVAC units offer much more than just cooling comfort. New features like smart thermostats, variable-speed air circulation, modulating technology and eco-friendly refrigerants make them more efficient than ever.
However, new features are just one of the reasons to invest in a new HVAC system. Pressing signs that it’s time for a new unit include a carbon monoxide leak, failed AC compressor, and high repair bills.
Carbon Monoxide Gas Leak
Other than having a carbon monoxide detector, there is no bulletproof way to detect carbon monoxide (CO) gas leak.
The symptoms of breathing in CO gas may not show until hours or even weeks later. This is why CO is so dangerous.
If you start to feel dizzy, have headaches, difficulty breathing, nausea, and vomiting, you may have CO poisoning. In these cases, immediately open the windows and doors in your house, and call for emergency HVAC services.
If your HVAC unit is leaking carbon monoxide gas, it’s likely time to invest in a new central heating and AC system. Put your mind at ease with help from the heating and cooling experts at CLARITY by ClimateCare. Working with the right professionals ensures the health and safety of your family.
Failed AC Compressor
The compressor of an HVAC system is the metal box situated to the side, or the back, of your home. In it, you will find the condenser, the condenser coil, and the fan. The compressor works by absorbing warm air inside the home and releasing it outdoors.
Here are five clues that your compressor may be on its way out:
- It doesn’t turn on.
- It dispenses warm air.
- It vibrates.
- It’s too noisy.
- It trips the circuit breaker.
If the compressor has failed, it may be most cost-effective to buy a new HVAC unit. Working with your local CLARITY by Climate Care provider ensures you enjoy top quality installation, plus proactive maintenance and repairs all included in the cost of ownership.
High Repair Bills
The average life expectancy of a central HVAC system is from 12 to 15 years. You may be one of the fortunate few whose HVAC unit is still going strong after that timeframe.
But we’d be willing to bet that your repair bills aren’t exactly on the low side. If you notice higher than normal repair bills with no change in use of your AC or heat, then consider replacing your HVAC system.
Age is the most common reason why people have to replace their HVAC system. We offer great payment plans for all of our neighbours’ comfort! Keep your eye on your system especially during high-use seasons. Is it cycling more often? Does it feel humid inside? Is your energy bill too high?
If it’s that time, then why not put your mind at ease and work with a company that installs top quality, cost-effective heating and cooling systems and provides a myriad of other benefits?
