Signs It’s Time to Upgrade Your HVAC

Our HVAC systems are seldom noticed until they break down. Before your system breaks down, you may want to upgrade your HVAC. There are several symptoms where you may need to upgrade your system such as if your air conditioner and heat pump are 10 years old or older. Find out about Rusk Heating & Cooling, today.

Symptoms of HVAC problems

HVAC systems often perform well but only for a certain amount of time.

• Another symptom is if you have noticed in the last couple of months a definite rise in costs to keep your home comfortable.
• Also, if you see that you are often having repairs done often, this may be another sign that you need an upgrade. Rusk Heating and Cooling can help you with your heating and cooling needs.

Noises from heating or cooling systems

Most importantly, if you hear more noise coming from your heating or cooling system, there could be a problem with either your heating or cooling unit. Perhaps the most telling sign is if your heating and cooling units are not keeping up with your comfort needs.

Before you sell your home

In addition, if you are seriously thinking about selling your home, you may want to upgrade your HVAC. This will get the attention of potential home buyers because once they know this, they may think twice about your home compared to one who has an older system.

Too hot or too cold

Keep in mind; if you feel that your rooms are either too hot or too cold, it could mean that several things could be going wrong such as duct problems or poor airflow. Another point to consider is if you notice that your home is too humid.

Other benefits of upgrading

Besides feeling more comfortable in your home, other benefits of upgrading your HVAC system are:

• Having a programmable thermostat installed.
• With a programmable thermostat, you can program the thermostat so that it stays at a temperature that lowers energy usage.

To conclude, before your HVAC system breaks down, have it inspected by Rusk Heating & Cooling. Be prepared for all seasons.
