When Should You Replace Your HVAC System?

December 5, 2023

Modern HVAC systems are energy efficient and often last for a decade or longer, but they can eventually wear out. The last thing you want is to have your HVAC Glenside PA fail on a hot summer day. These are some signs that it may be time to replace it.

High Energy Costs

Keep track of your utility bills. If you find that you are paying a lot more than you did at the same time a year or two ago, that may mean that your HVAC system is not operating as efficiently as it should. If the system is old and suffering from wear and tear, replacing it could reduce your air conditioning and heating bills.

Inconsistent Temperatures

Your HVAC system should be able to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, regardless of the weather outside. If it can’t, that means the HVAC system is struggling to do its job. Replacing it could keep your home comfortable and save you money on your heating and cooling bills.

Strange Sounds and Smells

Old and damaged components may produce unusual sounds, such as squealing and grinding. You may also smell strange odors, which could mean that a critical part is damaged or that there is mold in the ducts.

The HVAC system should remove dirt, dust, and pet dander from the air and should control the level of humidity in the house. If you have noticed a decline in air quality that has caused you or a family member to experience an increase in asthma or allergy symptoms, it might mean that your HVAC system needs to be replaced.

  • “I had a great experience with Chud. Lewis and Sebastian did a fantastic job. They were communicative and on time, explained everything that they would be doing to clean my HVAC ductwork, answered all of my questions, were honest about not being able to properly clean my dryer vent, and cleaned up after they were done. They also went above and beyond, even cleaning dust from each slat of the return vent. Highly recommend.”

  • “We rely on Chud Duct Cleaning to perform our regular duct cleaning in our home. Your service technicians Lewis and Sebastian arrived promptly, introduced themselves and got right to work. Our home has many vents behind and under furniture, which was moved and replaced as if nothing ever happened. My home was carefully prepared and respected throughout the entire process. An access panel was replaced for a more pleasant look and better access in the future. I will not hesitate to use this company for service again.”
