Many homeowners don’t realize that their HVAC systems are on their last legs until it’s too late, when it suddenly fails. This usually seems to happen during extreme weather when you need it most. However, according to Hader, established heating and cooling specialists serving Cincinnati since 1883, you can avoid emergencies by looking for the following warning signs that your system needs to be replaced:
The expected lifespan of most air conditioners and heat pumps is roughly 10 years. Furnaces and boilers generally work well for 15. Even if they are still functioning well, older equipment is less energy efficient, so you could be wasting a lot of money on energy bills.
As your equipment ages, it will also need more frequent repairs. Even if it doesn’t, your energy bills will steadily increase as the equipment begins to function poorly.
Rooms that are too hot or cold usually indicate problems in the ducts, insufficient insulation, or other problems with your system.
Excessively dry air in the winter and very humid air in the summer typically means your equipment is not operating correctly or there are leaks in the duct.
Obtrusively noisy air conditioning equipment is usually an indicator that your duct system wasn’t installed properly or your equipment will break down soon.
If your home always seems dusty, holes in the ductwork could be drawing particles in from outside or the attic.
Every family deserves a comfortable home, so call in a professional if you think your heating or A/C system is on its way out. Visit Hader online or call (513) 661-1910 for a consultation or emergency air conditioning repair service today.
