Imagine you are driving down the road in your first car. It’s twenty years old, you get about 15 miles to the gallon, you’ve repaired three times in the last three years and every time you fix something, it becomes more expensive. Now imagine that the transmission finally gives out. You get the repair quote and it sounds crazy. Is it really worth it to fix that car, or is it time to think about buying a new one?
If you’re thinking its time to buy a new one, you probably do what we all do. You do some research on the Internet. You find the highest rated vehicles and look into the dealers with the best customer satisfaction. After doing your due diligence, it’s time to go ahead and buy that nice new car! Now, you get such good gas mileage that you only stop at the gas station once every week or ten days instead of every other day. You haven’t had to put any money into repairs! The car is under warranty and if anything happens to it, the dealer will take care of it! Now THAT is what I’d call a good deal!
Heating & Air Conditioning systems are just like that car. When that unit gets older, it starts to fail every Summer like clockwork. Suddenly your utility bills start to skyrocket, the house just doesn’t feel comfortable and the unit runs all day long! That can’t be good, can it?
Having an older HVAC system can negatively impact your home in a number of ways. You could see a drastic increase in your electrical bills as the unit has to run longer and longer to try and keep the house cool during the summer. Since the system isn’t operating efficiently, the humidity in the home will be hard to control. The house will feel less comfortable and you may experience issues with walls, floors, foundation and more as the temperatures swing and the humidity rise!
