One of the top investments you can make in your home is having a hard-working, efficient HVAC system.  Surveys have shown that the average American family spends close to $2,000 on energy bills and nearly half that goes to heating and air-conditioning.

So when your popsicle begins to melt onto your kitchen floor, it’s probably time to look into investing in a new HVAC system. Here are five things you should keep in mind when deciding to invest in a new HVAC unit for your home.  

1. Saves you money

The Department of Energy recommends replacing your HVAC system every 10 years. After 10 years, the daily grind on an older system makes it inefficient. New HVAC systems now on the market are built with energy-saving technology that will save you lots of money in the long run by reducing the monthly cost of your utility bill. The older your system is, the less efficient it is.

2. Cut down on repair costs

As your HVAC system ages, your repair costs increase. Minor problems with older units can cost anywhere from $400-$500 each time you call an HVAC professional out to your home to make repairs. When you begin paying for repairs several times a year, it’s time to stop wasting your money and begin thinking about purchasing a new unit.

3. Home resale

If you are thinking about selling your home now or in the future, one of the top three things new homebuyers look for when purchasing a home is the condition and age of the HVAC system. Investing in a new unit is a great selling point for potential home buyers.

4. Reduces noise

As your system gets older and older, the individual components of what may have been a great-running system are now starting to breakdown. If you are hearing lots of noise from your HVAC unit, it may be time to invest in a new one. With the new systems on the market, sounds coming from the air-conditioning unit are almost obsolete. When you begin to hear noise from your unit, there’s usually a problem. Investing in a new unit will curb those repair costs and quiet your home.
