If you answer yes to two or more of the following questions, you may need to explore replacing your existing heat and cooling system:
Is your home heating and cooling system older than 10 years old and do you plan on living in your home for at least two more years?
Do you notice undesireable hot or cold spots in your home?
Does your cooling system seem to run continuously?
Does your neighbor complain how noisy your air conditioner is?
Are your utilities increasing in cost each year due to your HVAC usage?
Does your furnace cycle on and off excessively?
Have you spent more than $500 in the last year to repair your heating or cooling system?
Do you see black sooty looking dirt around your supply air registers?
Have you noticed a recent increase in the number of HVAC service vans in your neighborhood and also new systems being installed at your neighbor’s home?
Do you have “builders grade” HVAC equipment installed in your home?
Do you or your family members suffer from seasonal alergies or asthma?
Do you have a finished basment that is too cold to be used during the winter months?
Do you desire a more efficient and reliable system with a certified long lasting warranty?
If well maintained, the average lifespan of a typical HVAC system is 12-15 years. This is the time frame when it’s best to get acquainted with all the available systems, so you’ll be ready when the time comes to replace your system with a new high-efficiency one. Your best deal on a new system is when you’re in the driver’s seat and able to take advantage of all the time-sensitive manufacture and utility rebates as well as tax credits. Lennox offer substantial rebates during the early spring and fall. Also, 2011 is the last year to get a tax credit of up to $500 when a high-efficiency heating and cooling system is installed.
