How to Know When It’s Time to Replace your HVAC

Do you have an inkling that your home’s HVAC system is starting to go downhill? Do the bullet points below sound all too familiar? If so, it might be time to replace your home’s HVAC system. But not to worry! Dividend offers some simple fast financing options to get your AC replaced and running efficiently . The fact is, heating and cooling is the largest energy user in most homes and upgrading or replacing through financing or other means may make the most sense for a longer system operating life and a happier home and wallet.

Your utility bill is sky rocketing

Does seeing your utility bill in the mail send chills down your spine? A rising utility bill may be a sign that it’s time to replace your heating and air conditioning. It’s natural to see an increase in utility costs over summer and winter when you're running your HVAC more than usual, although if these costs are still increasing during times of low usage, this may be a sign that your system’s efficiency is starting to decline.

A decline in comfort

Is your home not as comfortable as it used to be? Some rooms aren’t heating up quite the same and some just aren’t cooling down like they used to? Being able to control your home’s climate means a more comfortable home and a more comfortable home equals a happier you! A decline in comfort may be a sign that it’s time for an upgrade.

Strange noises

Is your HVAC louder than usual? An increase in noise may be an indication that there are loose pieces or parts of your furnace or system that need to be replaced. Constant repairs can lead to higher costs and lower efficiency levels than upgrading your heating and air conditioning system.

You see the repairman more than usual

Has the repairman become a regular guest of yours? If the repairman is making frequent visits to your home aside from regular scheduled maintenance, this may be a big indicator that it’s time to upgrade or replace. The truth is, repair costs add up quickly and if the repairs are getting out of hand upgrading your unit could make more sense financially.

You’re ready to get efficient

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, today’s best air conditioners use 30% to 50% less energy to produce the same amount of cooling as air conditioners made in the mid-1970s. As mentioned earlier, your home's heating and cooling usually consumes the most amount of energy, so making smart decisions regarding your HVAC system can lead to not only increased comfort but increased savings as well.
