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!

We were so pleased with their service

When our old oil furnace finally broke down we decided it was time to finally convert to natural gas and finally install central air conditioning at the same time. Knowing it was going to be a significant investment for us, we wanted to make the right choice. Twintech came highly recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. From the first contact with the salesperson, until the final touches on the installation, we were so pleased with their service. Everyone from the company was so friendly, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Best of all, the cost was very competitive. We would certainly recommend Twintech to anyone requiring HVAC work in their home.

Within a couple of hours, we had a new unit up and running!

During the hottest week in the summer our old A/C decided to call it quits. I called Twintech Heating & Cooling after receiving a referral from a family member; came highly rated for being an honest, family-run business, who appreciates their customers. Dave was able to accommodate my hectic schedule and book a late evening appointment to walk through the specifics. Greg and Mitch arrived exactly on time a few days later, were very polite and friendly, and within a couple of hours had a new unit up and running. I also received a follow-up call to ensure we were happy with the Amana.

Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors

Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors to the house for the installers to remove the old furnace and install a new furnace.
I also made recommendations of the tankless water heater that we had installed and items to address. We did not know they also installed tankless water heaters.

by Bill, Pickering on Twintech Heating and Cooling
Proud to support this local company

Price was not the cheapest nor the most expensive of my quotes. It's the quality of the installation that makes for a good AC system. The twins' knowledge & professionalism was evident in the small details:
Very clean work. Greg made sure that the refrigerant level & temperature were correct. They reinstall the insulation & vapor barrier around the wall. The outside electrical cords were secured to the wall. Proud to support this local company. Thank you.
