Top three reasons replacing your old HVAC equipment is not so bad
Modern amenities we take for granted like heating and air conditioning are typically only appreciated once we don’t have them anymore. Southern Californian’s can typically get away with a broken air conditioner in the summer without panic if they are close to the ocean, but unfortunately some service areas like Santa Clarita are not as lucky. The warm temperatures Santa Clarita and inland cities reach are a little more cause for concern if your old air conditioner breaks down. When you come to the crossroads of having to replace your HVAC system it’s not something any of us wish for or enjoy doing. But there are some exciting benefit. So, let’s look at the bright side and discover the top three reasons it’s not so bad to replace your HVAC system.
1. Environmental Benefits to Replacing your HVAC system
By switching to energy efficient HVAC equipment, you are likely using equipment that is energy star certified which means the impact on the environment is much lower than the old energy hog you may be using in your home today. Major HVAC manufacturers like TRANE and Bryant are taking great measures to create HVAC systems today that meet today’s environmental standards.
2. Financial Gains
We know what you are thinking, financial gains for who? Believe it or not, replacing an old inefficient air conditioner can be a financial burden on you and you don’t even know it. According to The California Energy Commission, “Heating and Cooling accounts for about 45 percent of your energy bill. The federal government estimates that the average homeowner spends more than $10,000 for heating and cooling over a ten-year period.”The truth is an HVAC system is built to last 10-15 years. Imagine the technology advances that have been made during that time. If your AC is in it’s teens you will likely pay for the investment of a new system with the utility savings you will see. We haven’t even talked about the rebates yet!
3. HVAC Equipment Warranties
It’s like buying a new car! The warranties on a new HVAC system should protect you from anything for up to ten years. Thats not to say that you wont have to put any effort into the maintenance, bu if you follow the terms of the warranty you are protected for the expected life of the system. Having a new HVAC System and possibly even new duct work will not just lower your utility bills, it will allow you to possibly qualify for some big rebates from utility companies. Now you can breathe easy in the comfort of your own home because you are protected by the HAVC equipment warranty.
