System Breaking Down? Not Cooling? Explore the Benefits of New Equipment

It’s a homeowner’s summer nightmare. Your AC system decided to break down during a heat wave. Not cool, AC. Not cool. The painful reality is that your cooling system is getting up in age, and you knew you’d have to replace it soon. Fortunately, Heating Specialties in South Jersey, can take the heat off you with new options in home comfort systems. You might not be excited about an unexpected household expense this summer. But new equipment comes with upgraded features and benefits that can help you chill out in no time.

How old is too old?

Is your heating and cooling system acting like a surly teenager, working only when it wants to and putting in a halfhearted effort when it does? The average heating and cooling system lifespan is about 10-15 years, although some homeowners are lucky enough to get a couple of decades from their system. Remember, though, individual components and parts can break down sooner than that, so repair costs are going to be part of the financial equation. That’s why heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) experts rely on the $5,000 rule: If the cost of the repair times the age of your unit is more than $5,000, it’s time to consider a replacement.

What’s new in heating and cooling?

Has it been a while since you shopped for a new system? The HVAC industry is continually evolving and improving on home comfort technology, which means you’re in for a refreshing surprise. Let’s look at some of the benefits of a new system:

Increased comfort: Older systems can struggle to find the perfect indoor temperature. You wind up feeling like Goldilocks, stuck between “too hot” and “too cold” as you search for “just right.” Today’s upgraded heating and cooling technology does a much better job of maintaining a consistent temperature and avoiding those hot and cold spots that can occur in distant areas of your home.

New savings: Today’s inflation is hurting all of us, and we could all use a break in our monthly utility bills. Your older system may be inefficient, forcing it to work harder to keep your home comfortable. A new system can deliver better performance through better and reliable components. If the system is using less energy, you’re paying less on your monthly bills. You’re also doing a favor for the planet. It’s a win/win situation!

Better warranties: Most systems outlive their warranties, which can be a good thing when you consider longevity. However, once the warranty has expired, the cost of repairs is on you, the homeowner. When you’re shopping for a new system, Heating Specialties can explain the different options and their warranties, so you can make an informed choice.

New and upgraded safety features: Your old system may be connected to older wiring and power sources, creating a safety hazard you don’t even notice. Even the parts and wires within the unit can deteriorate over time. When Heating Specialties installs your new AC system, our technicians will be sure to address any existing hazards and give you a little extra peace of mind.  

New smart features: As technology improves, so can our lives. Smart features give you greater control over your system, whether you’re using a phone app to lower your temperature or relying on the system to learn your family’s schedule and adjust the climate accordingly. If you’re someone who craves easy comfort, a smart system may be your answer.
