With today’s climate and temperature extremes, your heating and air conditioning system has certainly seen some hardworking days. But is it past its prime? While maintenance can boost the performance and efficiency of your current system, heating and cooling units more than 10-years old are nowhere near as efficient as today’s high-efficiency models. Could an HVAC upgrade be worth the expense?
Many older systems don’t work as well as they should. Coupled with advances in technology and efficiency, you could be spending a lot on electric costs monthly. These added expenditures could easily be used to pay off a new HVAC system, lowering your monthly energy bills. How can you determine if upgrading your HVAC system could be beneficial for your home? Answering these questions could help you decide:
According to the Department of Energy, heating and cooling are responsible for over half your monthly energy costs. However, with an investment in a newer, more efficient system, you could reduce these monthly costs, saving hundreds annually. The higher the SEER/EER rating on the system, the greater the savings. To help you mitigate the cost of a system upgrade and reduce your carbon footprint, many municipalities and electric companies offer rebates and incentives.
