How to Tell if You Need to Replace Your HVAC System
It’s never easy to come to the decision of whether or not to replace your HVAC system. It’s best if you make the decision on your own terms rather than your system dying for good on the hottest or coldest days of the year. Here are some signs that it may be time for a new HVAC system:
- Your HVAC system is older than 15-20 years.
- You’ve had many repair calls recently
- Your utility bills are much higher than normal
- Your HVAC system struggles on the hottest days and the coldest nights
- Poor indoor air quality
- Increased dust in your home
Ways to save on a New HVAC System
HVAC systems can be very expensive, so looking for ways to save is a smart idea. Before you pull the trigger, make sure to talk to a professional HVAC team like Novak Heating and Air Conditioning. We can diagnose your furnace and air conditioner and give you an estimate on the cost of the work. We’ll also let you know what to look for when shopping around for a new HVAC system.
The Best Time of Year to Replace Your HVAC System
People need furnaces and air conditioners the most when they suddenly stop working in the extreme heat or cold. The middle of the winter and summer is when HVAC systems are in demand the most, causing prices to soar.
The best time to replace your HVAC system is in the early spring, or in the early fall. September is a great month to consider replacing your HVAC system before you start relying on it this winter. Talk to Novak Heating and Air Conditioning in Cedar Rapids and Hiawatha, IA to make sure you install an HVAC system that is a good match for the size of your home.
If you’re going to replace your HVAC system, have you considered other options besides a furnace and air conditioner? Heat pumps are an energy-efficient option, as they can provide both heating and cooling without the use of fossil fuels. Ductless mini-splits are another great choice. They don’t require the use of ductwork and allow homeowners to create temperature zones across their homes. Contact Novak to learn more about our heating and cooling systems.
Specials & Rebates Offer More Ways to Save
Many HVAC manufacturers offer rebates and sales on certain models of HVAC systems throughout the year. Be sure to monitor the top HVAC manufacturers for deals. Another reason why the early spring or early fall is the best time to buy a new heating and cooling system is that this is the slow season for many HVAC companies. Be sure to shop around and don’t settle for the first quote you receive. Negotiate and search for the best deal in town before making a final decision.
Other companies might also offer specials and coupons on HVAC installation services during specific times of the year only. This is especially common during these slow months and around holidays. Be sure to watch Novak Heating and Air Conditioning’s specials page for discounts and coupons.
