There comes a time in the life of every HVAC system when a replacement becomes necessary. Sometimes the signs are obvious; maybe your air conditioner has begun to emit odd sounds or smells, shown a marked drop in performance or started to require more frequent repairs. Other times, the signs may not be immediately noticeable.
The typical HVAC system has a service life of 8 to 20 years. The magic number, however, is 12. If your HVAC system has been in use for at least 12 years and has started breaking down, it’s a good time for a replacement, letting you avoid costs associated with excessive repairs and energy inefficiency
