When was the last time you gave a lot of thought to your home’s heating and air conditioning system? Often an “out of sight, out of mind” mechanical appliance, it probably isn’t top of mind unless there’s a performance issue.
And when problems do arise, we know repairs or the price tag of installing a new system may seem daunting and overwhelming. Don’t worry! An upgrade can pay for itself quicker than you may think in the form of reduced monthly energy bills. If you haven’t been in the market for an HVAC system the past decade, you’ll be (pardon the pun) blown away by the state-of-the-art options and energy-efficient features today’s Bryant products provide.
At Edwards Royal Comfort, we’re proud to offer special exclusive financing options. With 0% interest for 72 months or monthly payments as low as $72, you can invest in your home’s comfort without breaking your budget.
If you’re unsure about making a replacement, keep a lookout for the following signs it’s time to make a switch:
- Your system is older than your teenagers
They grow up so fast — both your children and HVAC equipment! The Department of Energy recommends homeowners replace their heating and air conditioning systems after lifespans of 10-15 years. Old age is a likely cause for many issues as major components begin to wear down and deteriorate over time.
- You’re afraid to open your energy bill
An outdated system is going to make its presence felt financially. If your monthly utility bill seems larger than it was this time last year, consider making an upgrade. According to the Department of Energy, replacing a 10-year-old air conditioner can reduce energy costs by 20-40%.
- You’re on a first-name basis with our technicians
While our technicians are happy to repair your system and offer outstanding customer service whenever you need us, we know you don’t want to be scheduling repeat visits to address frequently appearing or recurring issues. If repair costs are starting to add up to close to half the price of a new system, make the upgrade to keep our technicians from needing to visit so often.
- Scary sounds
Vibrating, grinding, squealing, squeaking or similar sounds — if you’re hearing something new and unusual, get your system checked out as soon as possible.
- Stinky smells
The development of unpleasant odors could be a sign your system has begun growing mildew as result of excess moisture or refrigerant leaks.
- General “uncomfortable-ness”
Does your home’s heating or cooling feel uneven, underwhelming or just uncomfortable? Maybe you just need to schedule a maintenance tune-up. But if your system’s age is into double digits, its efficiency at keeping your home universally comfy is dwindling.
Whether you’re positive it’s time to make an upgrade or not sure of the best course of action for your home, the best thing you can do for your heating and cooling system is let one of our expert technicians at Edwards Royal Comfort take a look.
