While repairs and maintenance are incredibly important to extending the life of your Gilbert, AZ HVAC unit and improving its efficiency, there also comes a time when a new HVAC installation may be needed. Whether you're replacing an old system or installing one in a new home, San Tan Comfort Systems Inc. can provide you with the best modern HVAC system for your home.
HVAC systems are designed to operate at their best when the temperatures are under 95 degrees and are also designed to last for decades. But in Gilbert, the heat regularly rises well above 95 and remains there. As such, HVAC units often start losing their efficiency within just 8 to 10 years. Knowing when to replace your system is important.
But since each system and situation is different, there are no specific rules as to exactly when you need to replace your HVAC system. There are several different things to consider, but the two most important are:
For example, if an air conditioner stops working then you'll have to consider the questions above. Let's say that the fan motor on the condenser has failed on the unit. Repairing the system costs $750. But that fan failure could be only the first of many failures. Consider the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). If it's far lower than modern systems, then the cost of your repair and the higher costs of operating it around the clock means that you'll actually end up losing money. We'd recommend replacing the unit.
Another clear sign that it's time to replace your unit is if the compressor fails. Compressor failure is something that can be incredibly expensive to replace, but older units will also often have to be replaced simply because many of them use refrigerants that are now banned by the EPA.
Finally, if your Gilbert energy bills are climbing over the last few years, it may be because your system is losing efficiency. A replacement system could save you money.
There are a few signs that it may be time to replace your Gilbert HVAC system. These include the following.
Knowing what to expect from an HVAC replacement is important as well. In general, you can expect a full installation to take about 6 to 8 hours. If we have to replace ductwork as well, that timeframe will be longer. In some cases, multiple Gilbert technicians will help to ensure that your job is done as quickly as possible.
