Ellett Air Conditioning Offers Information for Determining When to Replace Furnace Or Air Conditioner

The smart home or business owner will always be on the lookout for certain telltale signs that will indicate if it’s time to think about replacing your heating and cooling equipment. Although repairs can be made to enhance your equipment’s performance, if the system is approaching the end of its life expectancy, it will be less energy efficient than newer and leading edge equipment.

Ellett Air Conditioning & Heating realizes that while there are no specific rules for replacing equipment, there is important information that you can take into consideration that will help you make a wise and economically wise decision and choice.

For example, if your heat pump or air conditioner is 10 years old, you may want to consider a higher efficiency unit with the Energy Star® label that can save up to 20% on energy costs. If the furnace or boiler in your property is 15 or older, an Energy Star® compatible furnace would provide 15% more efficiency. In addition, an Energy Star® compatible boiler would offer 5% more efficiency.

Speaking of energy efficiency, are you aware that your heating and cooling system accounts for about 50% of your home’s energy use? That’s why your decision to upgrade to new Energy Star® qualified equipment ensures that your unit meets or exceeds the Federal standards for energy efficiency.

In addition to considering your system’s age, you should also be aware of whether your equipment’s technology is outdated. By replacing aging equipment, you can take advantage of smart new features and increased efficiencies that can save you money on your utility bills.

You may also consider the cost of your system’s repairs. Consider adhering to a helpful rule of thumb and replace a product when repairs exceed half the cost of a new one.

In addition, if you feel like you must constantly adjust the thermostat to remain comfortable, or your air conditioner or furnace makes strange noises during start-up, it very well may be time to have a new system installed.
