When should you replace your HVAC equipment?

Your HVAC system works hard to keep your home at a comfortable temperature yearroundThat’s why it’s important to be familiar with the signs that your heat pumpair conditioner or furnace is on its last legs. At Confort Expert in Montreal, we don’t want you to be caught off guard by the costs of investing in a new system. Rather, we want you to be prepared by recognizing when your HVAC equipment is starting to fail. 

What are the signs that your HVAC equipment needs to be replaced? 

Over time, your heat pump, air conditioner, furnace or boiler will start to show signs of wear and tear, which may indicate that it’s nearing the end of its life.  


Here are five telltale signs that your HVAC system may need to be replaced: 


  • It’s costing you more money 
  • It’s making unusual noises 
  • It’s not cooling or eating evenly anymore 
  • It’s less efficient 
  • It requires frequent repairs 


Additionally, if your HVAC system is more than 15 years old, you may want to consider investing in a new, more energy-efficient one that will save you money in the long run.  


In addition, there are government subsidy programs that allow you to purchase a much more efficient appliance at a lower cost and / or allow you to convert to another energy source that is more economical and environmentally friendly. 


When should you replace your HVAC equipment? 

You should consider replacing your HVAC equipment as soon as you notice any of the major inefficiencies already listed. If you ignore the warning signs, your HVAC system is a lot more likely to breakdown unexpectedlyDealing with issues as soon as they arise and hiring a professional to thoroughly inspect your equipment will ensure you don’t run into any costly surprises. 


How can you extend the life of your HVAC equipment? 

Proper maintenance is the best way to ensure your HVAC equipment stays in top shape for years to come. For example, regularly cleaning or replacing your filters, wall unit and air ducts will help remove built-up dust and debris that could restrict fresh air from circulating.
