Common FAQs Related To Your HVAC System

4 More Frequently Asked HVAC Questions

Imagine a day when your HVAC unit suddenly stops working, and no matter what you try, it won’t turn on. However, this is a reality that many people face at some point. Don’t worry if you’re in a similar situation; we are here to help. To simplify the process, we have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions about replacing HVAC systems.

When Should My System Be Replaced?

Keeping your HVAC system in good condition ensures a comfortable and healthy living environment. If your system requires frequent repairs, consider replacing it. A well-maintained system should only need occasional maintenance, and if you’ve tried multiple repairs without success, a replacement may be necessary. Additionally, if your system is over 15 years old, it’s worth considering a replacement, even if it appears to be working correctly. Older systems tend to be less efficient and can result in higher energy costs, so upgrading to a newer model can save you money in the long run and help avoid costly repairs.

Should My Equipment Be Replaced At The Same Time?

If any part of your HVAC system breaks and needs replacement, consider replacing only that component. However, replacing the entire HVAC system is highly recommended, as it is more efficient and cost-effective for your home. All the parts of an HVAC system work together to heat and cool your home. If one part is replaced but the others are not, it may lead to a lack of coordination and efficiency in the system. Furthermore, if one piece of HVAC equipment fails, the other equipment of the same age will likely follow. Therefore, replacing the entire HVAC system at once is more cost-effective than replacing it one piece at a time.

What Size HVAC System Do I Need?

When installing an HVAC unit, choosing the right size is crucial to ensure optimal performance and energy efficiency. The size of the unit should be determined based on the square footage of the space you intend to heat or cool. If the unit is too small, it will struggle to reach the desired temperature and run constantly, leading to high electricity bills. Conversely, if the unit is too large, it will heat or cool the air too quickly, causing it to frequently turn on and off, reducing energy efficiency and increasing your electric bill. To avoid these issues, we recommend that you seek the advice of the HVAC professionals at W.E. Kingswell, who can help you determine the appropriate size unit for your space.
