Your HVAC system is designed to operate at or below 95 degrees, and can last an average of 12-15 years. Here on the coast, temperatures above 95 are typical in the summer- this is why systems begin to fail at 8-10 years. There are no particular rules for replacement, as each system is different. But here are some scenarios that may offer you a place to start:
- What is the cost to repair vs. replace an HVAC system?
- Has your unit received regular maintenance?
- What is the age your current system?
If you do decide to replace your HVAC system, this process takes approximately 4 to 5 hours, depending on your home's layout. Multiple technicians will be provided to ensure the installation process is completed in a timely manner.
When choosing a new HVAC system there are many options to consider. C.R. Petterson Heating & Air, LLC will help you choose the proper size HVAC system to ensure optimal performance and efficiency to meet your needs. A unit that is too large will not adequately control humidity, and a unit that is too small will not be able to cool your home in the summer months. Central air conditioners are rated according to their seasonal energy efficiency rating (SEER), which is the amount of energy the unit requires to provide a specific cooling output. Many older HVAC systems have a SEER rating of 8 and below, while the minimum today is 14.
