Your HVAC system can make your life comfortable both in the hot summers and the cold winters. But just like all appliances, air conditioning units don’t last forever; over time, they start becoming inefficient. Often, how long your HVAC unit lasts depends on such factors as how frequently it’s used and the climate in which you live.
However, regularly serviced units usually last longer than poorly maintained ones. While this is the case, even the well-maintained air conditioning systems run into problems after some time. This is the reason we have a compiled the 7 most common tell-tale signs indicating that you should consider replacing your HVAC unit sooner.
Properly functioning HVAC systems operate almost silently. Minor sound changes could mean you unit needs some repairs. For instance, some part in the unit has loosened, or the fan is not working correctly. However, more strange noises like a grinding, screeching, rattling, or buzzing could mean a major fault that will call for a replacement.
Unusual odors could also indicate problems. Maybe the insulation has been damaged, or the ductwork is moldy or the filter needs replacement. If such minor problems are addressed, and the foul smell doesn’t go away, you might want to replace the entire unit.
Your unit may seem to be working quite normally, but if you notice that your energy bills have suddenly hiked, and after some “energy audit” you single out your air conditioner as the culprit, then find out why it has become so less inefficient. It could be overworking due to some major underlying problem. Try cleaning the vents, check for knots and lumps in its condensing oil, and replace the filters. An air conditioning technician will help you determine whether its working life has come to an end.
So in case you have detected any of the above signs, you should have your HVAC system thoroughly checked by a professional to determine whether it needs repairs or replacement. Acting quickly may save you a possible replacement.
