Many clients often wonder if upgrading your HVAC system will save money on energy bills. Generally speaking, the answer is yes, older systems typically cost more to operate. So many companies will see higher energy bills without upgrading their outdated HVAC systems. That’s why it’s worth replacing old, outdated equipment or upgrading when it stops working – a brand new unit can use a fraction of the energy of an old one, giving you significant savings on your electric bill. Here is why it’s important to upgrade your existing HVAC unit.
Why Is The Lifespan of My HVAC System So Important?
The average lifespan of a heating system is important for budgeting for a couple of reasons. First, when purchasing a new system you can estimate the total savings of the unit prior to making the investment. Second, understanding how long your HVAC system should last will help you budget for a new system, rather than being surprised by the bill when the system breaks. Keep in mind, the average time an HVAC system lasts will always depend on regular maintenance and repairs as needed.
If an HVAC unit is regularly maintained and repaired it will last much longer. At Rogers HVAC we recommend one of our HVAC maintenance plans to ensure your HVAC system has the longest lifespan possible.
The Advantages Of Upgrading Your HVAC System:
- Lower electricity bills
- Increased property value
- Much quieter
- Safer to run
- Reduce carbon footprint
Of course, the most important advantage of the latest devices is that they consume up to 30-50% less power thanks to smart features and energy-efficient components.
What Contributes To Higher Energy Efficiency?
- Look for HVAC systems with the Energy Star designation and a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating when replacing your HVAC system (SEER). The higher the energy efficiency rating, the better. These devices can cut your yearly energy expense in half and lower your energy use.
- The heating function also contributes significantly to reduced end-of-month expenses, since newer HVAC units can generate heat faster and more efficiently.
- Thanks to smart HVAC controls built into modern equipment, you no longer have to manually control your HVAC unit. Residential users typically benefit from the timed operation and smart-home connectivity (which allows them to remotely control the temperature in their home), while commercial users benefit most from the ability to coordinate multiple units. Digitized and automated operation results in instant access to information and reduced energy consumption.
Ductwork and pipes account for a large portion of the cost of establishing an HVAC system, thus an update is a minor investment in and of itself. If you want to save money, you should speak with a specialist like Rogers & Sons who can determine the air conditioning unit performance you require depending on your interior space, rooms, and other factors. Then we will create a new system that will accomplish the work more quickly and for less money.
