4 Signs It’s Time to Upgrade Your HVAC System

As the seasons begin to change here in Myrtle Beach and the weather starts heating up, being able to control the climate in your home becomes more and more important. Yet with all this humidity, finding your perfect temperature can seem like a chore if you’re HVAC system is old and outdated. Many systems are made to last around 15-20 years, but many homeowners decide to replace their system after about 10 years for a new, more efficient system. Even if you’re unsure how old your system is, our team at Beach Air HVAC has come up with a few signs to look for to help determine if you need to update your model or not. 

Increased Energy Bills

If you’ve noticed your power bill increasing within the last few months, this could very well be a sign you need to upgrade. Usually, this is a sign your HVAC system isn’t running as efficiently as it used too. 

Increased Running Time

As HVAC systems age, you’ll start to notice it has to stay on longer to reach the set temperature. If you notice it running longer than normal, there could be parts that need to be replaced rather than installing a whole new system. If you notice your system running longer than normal after being repaired, it’s time for a new unit. 

You Don’t Schedule Routine Maintenance

Many homeowners don’t realize how important it is to perform regular maintenance to their HVAC system. Regular maintenance can prevent many costly repairs and keep your system running longer and more efficiently. We suggest checking once a year to make sure your system is running safely and efficiently as possible.

Your Unit Is 10+ Years Old

Within the last decade, there have been many advances in HVAC technology. These newer systems are more energy-efficient and can save you money monthly. If your HVAC system is older than 10 years old and you haven’t had any maintenance done to it, consider it a prime candidate to be replaced. You can expect any unit over 10 years old to start costing you in repairs.

While the initial cost of a new HVAC system can be high, there are plenty of benefits to replacing an outdated system. From saving on energy costs to giving your home a higher resell value, replacing an old, outdated unit is worth it in the long run. For all your HVAC needs this season, don’t hesitate to give our team of technicians at Beach Air HVAC a call!
