“My home is ice cold. I think my heater needs to be repaired or replaced.”

Does Your Phoenix Home Need a New Air Conditioner? 

Summers in the Phoenix valley is hot, hot, hot. It can get as high as above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, only going about 75 degrees Fahrenheit when the moon shows. While there are about a hundred ways to survive and have fun during summers in Phoenix, one of the things you’ll be most thankful for is having a good running central AC unit installed. 

If your HVAC is quite old but is still running, you might be thinking about if it is worth replacing or if you should wait until it breaks down. If you are noticing your home can’t seem to ever get to a comfortable temperature, it may be time to contact a local HVAC contractor in your Phoenix metro. Though a heating and cooling system is not cheap to install, it can be a lifesaver in emergency situations where your home becomes unbearably hot. A central air conditioning unit costs about $6,000 to $11,000, while a heating system, specifically a furnace, is about $1,500 to $2,000 to install. But, there are a sufficient number of reasons why you should contemplate replacing your HVAC, especially in Phoenix. Here are five points to help you decide if you should replace your current HVAC system and reap the benefits.

#1 Lifespan of Your HVAC System

The average age of an HVAC system is approximately 15 years. Standalone furnaces may live longer, while air conditioners alone last about 10 to 15 years. This scenario only happens if you observe regular check-ups and maintenance for your HVAC system. Why? It is because skipping even a year of an annual HVAC maintenance schedule could do damage to the system later down the road without any noticeable warning signs.

Without proper assessment and intervention of malfunctions, more significant problems like air filter clogging and duct leaks can happen. If issues are left unsolved, it drastically lowers the lifespan of your system, which means your central AC unit and furnace combo becomes relatively old quickly. And an old system with lots of concerns does not work as efficiently, which can significantly increase your overall utility bills. If this circumstance is familiar to you, then it is time to invest in a new HVAC system and replace your old one. A new system will bring controlled temperatures and also energy efficiency which can be seen through lowered utility bills. 

#2 Enhanced Comfort

Investing in an HVAC replacement offers enhanced airflow and provides a more customized management of individual room temperature. It can prevent the issue of other rooms being too cold or warm by effectively dispersing conditioned air into each room. Take note that newer units allow improved circulation and distribution overall that your current unit and ductwork may be lacking. 

#3 Smart HVAC System Integration with Apps

Intelligent systems incorporated in various home appliances, such as air conditioners and thermostats, can make your Phoenix home up to par with modern technology and advancements. By integrating your mobile phone with your smart thermostat through designated apps, you can adjust the settings of room temperature anytime you want. Investing in newer, more intelligent devices such as these allows you to prevent the waste or energy when you are not home or when you are only using certain rooms.  

#4 Improved Air Quality

One of the most pressing concerns in Phoenix is air quality. There is little you can do to improve your surroundings outdoors. What you can do, however, is to improve the air quality of your home.

One essential function of a new HVAC system is to make sure that you are getting good quality conditioned air free of pollutants, mold, or other toxins that can be circulated through your vents. It should have the right ventilation, which is crucial in managing your indoor humidity level and filtration of particles in the air. 

Phoenix homes, usually inside condominium units and apartments,  have airtight systems to ensure energy efficiency. Newer HVAC units even have dehumidifiers and upgraded filtration systems, which helps to eliminate dirt, molds, and microbes in the air. Improved air quality often goes unnoticed but plays a huge part in your overall health whether you realize it or not.

#5 Increased Home Value

If you replace your HVAC system, it will be a great asset in attracting potential buyers and just increasing your home’s value overall. A newer HVAC system is one less thing an interested buyer will have to worry about and if you install a newer modern energy efficient model with smart home technology – it can also help make your home a desirable buy. 

In conclusion, considering replacing your HVAC is a great idea for many reasons. Consultation with a local Phoenix HVAC specialist on installing a new central air conditioner is a great firs start for an HVAC replacement project.
