All mechanical systems eventually get worn out. Your heater is no different. How do you know if you need a new furnace? This is especially important to think about when the colder season is fast approaching. Here are some tell-tale signs your system may need to be replaced:
- Your heat pump or air conditioner is more than 10 years old.
- Humidity is high in your home.
- Noisy heating and cooling system.
- Your furnace is more than 15 years old.
- You find yourself getting more repairs than usual.
- Your energy bills have skyrocketed.
- You don’t get the temperature that you want. It becomes either too hot or too cold.
- Your thermostat is not programmable.
- There is too much dust in your home.
If you need to replace your furnace or heater, call Absotemp today and we’ll assist you all the way through the process. Before doing anything, we will perform the necessary inspection to see if there’s any other options.
10 Questions to Ask Before Replacing your HVAC System
Below is a checklist that will help you find the best solution for replacement.
Will the company provide a free estimates service? There should be no surprise fees when a service is provided by Absotemp. Every cost will already be in the estimate.
Is it necessary to get forced-air cooling and heating? Remember that you can always opt for other alternatives. There are also radiant heat systems and heat pumps that function just as well.
What should the size of my system be? Simply matching your existing system's specifications may not be your best buy, especially if you've added on to your home. Absotemp will personally calculate your home's heating and cooling needs before any free estimate.
Do I need multiple heating and cooling zones? If you are going for a replacement, make sure you don’t just go for the same specs as that of your old system. If you’ve had home renovations and added more rooms and spaces, it may be good to consider another size.
Do I need a humidifier or a dehumidifier? This is a question that can be answered once you have already tested the humidity level of your home. Sometimes, you may need to get both to cater to different seasons.
Will I qualify for utility rebates for the system I buy? Yes, homeowners can receive up to $1000 in utility rebates with qualifying systems.
Do I get special manufacturer rebates and offers? Yes, Trane offers rebate programs in the fall and summer. Also, Trane is currently offering a 0% APR financing for 72 months to qualifying custmers.
Will my HVAC system be efficient? You need to look at the operating costs in the long run, and not just the cost of the unit itself.
What are the different filter types? There are types of filters that improve indoor air quality. There are also washable and disposable ones.
