HVAC maintenance, which refers to heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, is very important. Residential cooling and residential heating are among some of the most important amenities that homeowners can have. Two-thirds of all homes in the United States have air conditioners and a great number also have some form of furnace to provide heat in the winter. The expected lifespan of a furnace, on average, is around 15 to 20 years, and air conditioners can last almost as long, given proper maintenance. Since heating and cooling are so important, when the time comes, it is very important to replace your air conditioner and furnace. This article looks at the benefits that can come from replacing your air conditioner and furnace.
- Lower energy consumption: When looking to replace residential HVAC equipment like an air conditioner or a furnace, one of the benefits to consider is the energy you will save with the new machine. New air conditioners use almost 50 percent less energy compared to the air conditioners from almost thirty years ago. Assuming your air conditioner is almost 20 years old at the time it is being replaced, you are almost guaranteed to be lowering your energy usage simply by installing a new air conditioner.
- Efficient HVAC maintenance: Another benefit that can come from replacing your air conditioner or furnace is that you’ll be gaining a high efficiency piece of equipment. These efficient HVAC systems only require maintenance inspections a minimum of twice a year. This isn’t much compared to older, less efficient pieces of HVAC equipment which might need to be examined much more often.
- Guaranteed For a Long Time: The third, and most obvious benefit of replacing your furnace or air conditioner, is that by putting in a new machine, you are guaranteed to have a machine that provides plenty of heating or cooling for many years to come. By replacing your old heating and cooling systems with new machines, you will no longer have to worry about your HVAC system breaking down.
In conclusion, one way to ensure proper HVC maintenance that lasts for a long time is to replace your air conditioner and furnace when the time comes. The benefits that can be reaped from this are lower energy consumption, a more efficient machine, and owning heating and cooling systems that will last for a very long time.
