Baggett Heating and Cooling gives you some tips on what to look for.
- Higher Bills?
Are you noticing an increase in your electric bill? Then it is a possibility that the HVAC system in your home is not working efficiently anymore.
- Obsolete Refrigerant?
R-22 is the refrigerant used in new systems prior to 2010 and will no longer be available for repairs in 2020. This makes repairs expensive and usually time for a replacement.
- How old is your unit?
If your HVAC system is 15 years old or more, It may be time to invest in a new one.
- Home alone?
If you leave home for most of the day, get yourself a thermostat that is programmable so that you start saving energy and money while away at work or asleep.
- Lots of repair calls?
If you’ve needed a lot of maintenance and repair work in the last few years, take it as a sign and invest in a new one.
- Hearing noises?
If you’re hearing a sudden rattle or popping sound from your unit, these can be signs that your unit is on its last leg.
If you’re doing a lot of dusting lately, your HVAC system with clogged air filters or leaking ducts could be to blame.
- Is one room warmer than the others?
Room to room discomfort is normally attributed to duct problems or insufficient insulation. These issues can be remedied along with system replacement.
In any case, whether you need cleaning, repairs or even replacement, Baggett Heating and Cooling is here to help.
