A Homeowner’s Dilemma

blindsMany of our customers often face a dilemma when it comes to their aging HVAC system. While T. A. Kaiser offers both AC Installation in Lawrence IN and 24 Hour HVAC Repair service to the community, the dilemma is whether to keep pouring money into the existing HVAC system or to invest in a new one.

There are a number of considerations for the homeowner, and the decision should be made in concert with your HVAC service provider company. Because there are many technical considerations if your system is not completely dead, the homeowner will not be able to select the best system without some technical advice.

An Oldie But A Not-So Goody

The decision is easy if your system has completely stopped working, though the current recommendation is for homeowners whose systems are more than 15 years old should upgrade to a new system regardless of their happiness with their existing system. There are a number of reasons for this, including:

  • money savings to be had with the newer HVAC systems
  • higher efficiency system that will reduce fuel usage and increase system efficiency
  • a reduced carbon footprint in most cases
  • replacing the existing system before its inevitable (soon) breakdown

Advances in technology make much of these benefits possible, but they will only be realized when you take the first step to replace your existing system.0

Things To Watch For

Now if you have a system that you have had for less than 15 years, there are a number of things you need to watch for that are strong indicators you are best served by purchasing a new unit. Most are very obvious, but when in doubt discuss your concerns with your service technician.

  • your monthly energy bills are higher but there is no explanation for the rise
  • your system is making strange noises
  • you are constantly adjusting the thermostat
  • you find yourself calling for repair services once too often
