HVAC Systems: When Should You Replace Yours?

Heating and cooling units lose their productivity as they age. This may lead to frequent breakdowns, expensive service appointments, or a costly unit replacement. We have compiled a list of factors to take into consideration when determining if you should have your HVAC system repaired or replaced-and what to keep in mind when purchasing a new unit. 

Repair or Replace? 
Air conditioning systems and heat pumps fail efficiency and degrade very often in a span of 10 years. If your HVAC system is more than 10 years old, it is time to put into consideration major HVAC repairs or even replacement. 

With proper maintenance and care, HVAC systems can last up to 10-15 years. By starting to search for an early replacement, you can often prolong the lifespan of your present system and take action to start saving money to put into a brand-new unit or system once the need for it arises. 

If you recognize any of the following issues, it may likely be the time to call one of our HVAC experts to run diagnostic tests on your system: 

Growing Energy Bills 
A spike on your energy use - outside a standard seasonal alteration - could indicate a problem with your HVAC system. If you have been in your house for over a year, then compare your utility bills to ascertain whether you are always above your previous year’s electricity use. 

Problems in Humidity 
Your home may be too humid during summertime or too dry during wintertime. Humidity problems are a sign that there could be problems with your ductwork. For many, this can be a viable DIY job-though expensive and time intensive. For many, however, replacement and installation of ductwork are left to HVAC professionals. 

Irregular Temperatures 
Homes with more than one floor will experience temperature changes with a one-zone system. A broad variance in temperatures between rooms-even on precisely the exact same degree-or between flooring might indicate there is something wrong on your system. Call one of our service technicians to help diagnose if this is a very simple problem with your thermostat having to be recalibrated or maybe an even more serious issue like leaking ductwork. 

Regular Repairs 
Making frequent fixes to your system every year? Sprung a freon flow? It may make more sense to buy a new HVAC system and consume the short-term price than to continue to spend more money through regular, expensive repairs. 

Bi-annual maintenance is highly recommended for these HVAC systems-once in the fall before winter and once in the spring before summer. Proper maintenance of these units is essential to make sure the functionality is adequate and efficient and also to prolong the life of your system. 

Should you encounter any issues with your HVAC systems or for consultation whether it needs to be repaired or replaced, do not hesitate to contact the experts of Twintech Heating and Cooling. Call us TODAY!

Twintech replaced our aging furnace and air conditioner recently. I highly recommend this company. Their quote was competitive, they were on time and respectful of our home and extremely professional. From the salesman to the installers and the owner who followed up afterward to ensure we were satisfied, we are very pleased with the service. We are looking forward to working with this company for all of our HVAC needs for the years to come. Excellent workmanship and service!

We wanted to get our AC replaced as it was 22-years old and added to this our furnace was costing more and more to repair. So, we decided to get both the furnace and AC replaced.

After going through a few quotes and product reviews we decided to go with Twintech. The three-men crew arrived early in the morning, wasted no time and got to work right away. By 2:00 pm, they were all done. I’ve found their work to be top notch and they were completely professional. I had all my questions answered to my satisfaction both during the progress of their work and at end.

I have pleasure in recommending Twintech to anyone who is looking to get their furnace or Ac replaced

Our air conditioner died On a Saturday and within hours Dave came out to take a look and discuss replacement/repair options.
The new air conditioner was installed on the Wednesday. The new unit was installed quickly. The installers were friendly and cleaned up afterwards.
We noticed a slight leak around the furnace that night and they came out the next day and fixed the issue. It has been working great and is quieter than our previous unit.
Very satisfied and would highly recommend TwinTech.

I contacted TwinTech to replace my 20-year old A/C. Dave, their service rep, promptly replied and was at my home within 2 hours. He was friendly and knowledgeable and didn't try to upgrade or oversell their A/C units but suggested the best fit for my small 1000 feet bungalow. Although this was during a heatwave and very busy, they were able to fit me in 2 days later. The TwinTech crew installed a 1.5 ton Ducane A/C unit that is now running smoothly while maintaining a constant cooling temperature. The crew were very courteous, professional and efficient and I will definitely recommend TwinTech to family and friends. I much appreciated your great service.

TwinTech was a pleasure to deal with from the estimate through installation. We replaced a 28 year old a/c unit with one recommended by TwinTech's sales representative Dave who took the time to go over the product with us and answer any questions. The warranty is for 10 years parts and labour and they will complete the registration for you. Installation was by Greg (owner) and Mitch and Spencer who were quick and efficient and left everything clean and tidy.

Very professional, from the sales consultation and inspection to the final installation. Met every expectations we had for the job. A local business with great client support. We highly recommend. Twintech is a blue chip! Thanks!

I left a live chat message on their website that my air conditioning was not working. Within 1hr a representative called me to discuss my options.
The next day he came to the house to review my needs and give me a price for a new system. Price quoted was less than I expected and the installation was completed the following day. I found their salesman and the installers very knowledgeable and easy to deal with. All my questions were answered. Everything was properly explained in regards to what unit was needed and why, along with instruction where needed for use.
The installers made sure everything was working properly before they left.
