Replacing your HVAC System is never fun. Sometimes there are very obvious signs your system may be about to call it quits, but others are quite subtle. Our HomeWorks team has put together five signs to be on the look out for that may indicate your system is nearing the end of its useful life. Here are a few silent signs your HVAC system may be nearing the end of its career:
- Stagnant / Damp Air
Stuffy, humid air in your Minnesota home can be pretty uncomfortable, especially on a warm summer day. If your home is feeling unusually sticky, it may be a sign that your HVAC system is not working quite as it should. While this may be an easy fix, it could be indicative of a much deeper issue. If you are experiencing this in your home, our HomeWorks team will be able to assess the issue and recommend needed repairs or replacement options for your home.
- Inconsistent Thermostat Readings
Are your thermostats’ readings inconsistent? One minute it may read 75℉, and another, it’s reading 82℉. Although this may be an easy-to-miss sign, an erratic thermostat signifies that your A/C unit may be in need of replacement.
- Air is Constantly Running
Fun fact! A properly operating AC unit will kick on about 2-3 times per hour. If your AC is running consistently, or you have noticed your energy bill is higher than usual, this could indicate a dirty filter, clogged ducts, or worse, a failing system…
- Half of Your House Cooling
If you walk from your kitchen across the house to your bedroom and notice they are two completely different temperatures, this is a sign your A/C isn’t working correctly. Usually, if your A/C unit is failing, it is no longer powerful enough to reach further distances, resulting in inconsistent temperatures throughout your house.
- Recurring HVAC Breakdowns
Frequent HVAC breakdowns are not only a major headache but are also abnormal. If your system requires maintenance more than the standard two times per year, consider retiring your current system and upgrading to a new one. Call Homeworks today for an install estimate.
