3 Signs It’s Time to Replace Your HVAC System

An HVAC system is one of the most expensive systems in your Tinley Park, Illinois, home. But it’s also the most crucial to your comfort and quality of life. Here are three signs it’s time to replace your HVAC system with a newer and more energy-efficient model:

You Require Frequent Repairs

The average lifespan of an air conditioner is around 14 years. If you have repaired your HVAC system multiple times in its lifetime, it might be time to replace it.

Use the 5000 rule when deciding whether to repair or replace. If you multiply the age of your HVAC system by the cost of repairs and that number is over 5000, consider replacing instead of repairing. While it costs more to replace than repair, replacing now will save you money in the long run.

Your HVAC System is Using Old Coolant

Most older model HVAC systems use expensive R-22 coolant, while newer systems use R-410a refrigerant. R-410a is more environmentally friendly and cost effective. If you have an older HVAC system with an R-22 leak, consider replacing instead of repairing it.

Operating Costs are High

If you have an inefficient HVAC system that is at half its lifespan and you repair it, it’ll operate at that same rate for the rest of its life. If you replace your system, you could have a much more energy efficient system that would end up saving you money on operating costs for the remainder of its life. If a simple fix doesn’t change your high-energy bill issues, it might be time to replace.

An efficient HVAC system is important to a comfortable home. To schedule a replacement, call Climate Master Mechanical at 708-597-5470 for all your HVAC needs. We’re here to keep your HVAC system running as efficiently as possible for many years to come.
