HVAC Systems: When Should You Replace Yours?

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!

by Craig in Whitby on Twintech Heating and Cooling

I called Twintech during the Covid 19 crisis because our furnace was broken and it was still very cold during the nights. Dave answered all of my questions by phone but wanted to come have a look but only if our family felt comfortable having someone visit during the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic and was able to attend that very same affternoon.

He was very courteous and informative but most importantly he respected his and our safety by wearing medical gloves in our home and maintaining proper physical distancing. He reviewed the various options of the products that suited our needs going over not only price but quality of workmanship, warrantees and where the product was manufactured which were all important factors in making such a large purchase. You could tell that Dave had been in this industry for a very long time.

The installation was done by a fine young gentleman the very next day and we now have a toasty warm home to ride out this crisis in while humming along at 96% efficiency!

I would recommend this very professional, small family business for anyone in need of HVAC equipment or maintenance.

My special thanks to Twintech teams! They had replaced my furnace and A/C, and installed a new humidifier for me 2 weeks ago. Dave, the sales manager, not only provided me with an honest quote on the best HVAC products with best quality and warranties, he also arranged portable heaters for me and sent supporting docs to energy company for energy audit. Above and beyond service!

Greg, Grant, Mitch had worked tirelessly and professionally to perform the HVAC installation. They worked with professional tools, and performed proper measurement readings after installation. They are very patient with all my questions, and very pleasant to communicate.

Great work guys! This company sure knows their products and they stand behind their services. My home comfort level has improved! I am glad that I can support an ethical and honest local family business.

Professional, flexible on price and delivered on time...well done. All you can ask for when getting a new furnace.

by nicole.el.thorn on Twintech Heating and Cooling

The work was done quickly and professionally. Workers were really polite and easy to work with.
Product works great!

by Gary in London on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Furnace broke down on a Wednesday, shopped around for prices and Friday Twintechs name came up from a referral from my wife's work. Called Dave 11 am, he came over around 1 pm. Gave me a very good price, I accepted. The guys were there two hours later to take the old furnace out and install the new one. All finished by 6:30pm. Finally heat.
They were very pleasant and helpful. As a result we are doing our A/C later this year with this company.

by Shawn L in Whitby on Twintech Heating and Cooling

After some extensive research, we settled on Twintech for our new furnace. The service - from Dave's initial visit - through to the installation was absolutely fantastic.

Dave was super-patient with our many questions, did not try to "up-sell" us into buying things we don't need, knowledgeable, friendly and all-around an excellent Advisor.

I've forgotten the names of the installers but they were superb as well. They showed up on-time, did all the work with no mess or intrusion, removed the old furnace and installed the new one in one day; all with no impacts to our day-to-day life.

I cannot recommend Twintech enough, especially over any of 'bigger guys' who tried to sell us a bunch of thing we don't need. Twintech were fantastic and my wife and I are very pleased with our purchase.

by Stephen from Pickering on Twintech Heating and Cooling

From the minute I met Dave and discussed my new furnace needs I knew I was in good hands. He was patient, knowledgeable and very professional through the quotation process.

Grant and Greg did an outstanding job on the install. They did a great job of explaining the defects with my old furnace. The quality of the installation was excellent and the attention to detail was on another level. The old adage “You get what you pay for” couldn’t be more true as I feel I received great value, skilled expertise and high quality customer service. I highly recommend Twintech for all your heating and cooling needs.

by Arthur on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Glad to have found a not-too-big local firm that provided the needed expertise, quality workmanship, and competitive pricing as well. In and out in one day, removed the old units, did a nice job installing all of the new units, and left no debris. Even have a service contract that far outshined the big company offerings. Would definitely recommend them.

by Leriksen on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Appreciated a quick response to my request. Dave and Greg were very professional and made the experience seamless.

by petesalmon938 from Pickering on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Very professional through the entire process. Installation and removel was done on a sloppy winter day, they put down runners on the floors and stairs and when they left, there wasn;t any sign of someone being in our house. Furnace works great as promised.
