Residential heating and air systems are built to offer excellent service for a number of years. Even so, the day will come when it’s time to get rid of the old system and invest in a new one. How do you know that it’s time to think about a replacement? Here are three signs to keep in mind; if any of these are happening, a new Charleston heating and air system could be a wise investment.

Have you noticed that the unit seems to run more often, but the home is not at a comfortable temperature? This often happens as the system ages. Depending on what’s wearing out, repairs could be expensive. In fact, you may find that what it would cost to repair the current system isn’t much different from what it would cost to replace it.

Along with less comfort, do you notice that the utility bills are higher? It’s not due to a rate increase; the issue is that your home is consuming more energy. That tracks back to the fact the aging system is running more often. Replace it and you should see a decrease in energy usage as well as be more comfortable in your home.

Maybe the unit is running, but there are some ominous sounds that have developed lately. They seem to be happening more often and at times are louder. This could be a prelude to a complete system failure. If a Charleston heating and air expert finds that the current system won’t last much longer, it’s a good idea to proceed with the replacement sooner rather than later.

If your unit is over a decade old, do consider the possibility of replacing it. Get it inspected and see what a professional says. Choosing to replace it now could mean that the unit doesn’t fail when you need it the most.
