Depending on the circumstances, older HVAC systems can keep chugging along for years. They may not be too efficient, but if nothing breaks, they can keep operating. It’s reasonable to assume that if your Bountiful or Woods Cross home is still warm, the heating system is good enough for now. However, there are reasons to replace an older heating system or airconditioning system – even if it is still working.
Reasons to Upgrade Your HVAC System
1. You can gain more control over your comfort.
Thermostats and temperature control systems have come a long way in recent years. With a compatible heating and cooling system, you can use multiple thermostats throughout your home. Each of those thermostats can be fully programmable. You can set what temps you want and what times. You can even adjust them from your smartphone whenever you want.
2. The air in your home will be cleaner.
You may have replaced the filter in your current HVAC system. If you have, you know how dirty the filters can get. New HVAC systems do a much better job of filtering the air that passes through them. These new systems use higher quality filters that remove more particulates and pollutants from the air. They are also engineered more tightly so less air passes around the filter. The result is that the air in your home is cleaned more thoroughly than it was with the old system.
3. A new HVAC system will operate more quietly.
Older furnaces can be real beasts, rattling, banging, popping, and humming along night and day. You and your family are probably used to the noise. But what if you didn’t have to listen to all that racket? New heating and cooling systems are much quieter than older ones. All you may hear is the air pushing through the vents.
4. New systems are more efficient, which can save you money over the long run.
One of the main reasons Davis County homeowners don’t want to let go of their old HVAC systems is money. It makes sense to not want to spend a lot of money when your current system is still working. But the truth is that over the long term, a new system is likely to save you money. That’s because it will be more energy-efficient, using less energy to produce more heat.
Additionally, there are rebates that Dominion Energy gives to Bountiful, Centerville, Woods Cross, and other Davis County homeowners for upgrading to higher efficiency furnaces, because they know they are more efficient and that less natural gas is being burned off when running them, helping heat your home more efficiently.
