Warmer weather is here, and many homeowners are kicking air conditioning systems on for the first time only to find that the cool air they want to come out isn’t so cold. Spring is a great time to upgrade your HVAC system and replace it with something new or have Clean Sweep come clean your air ducts for maximum efficiency. When should you consider upgrading what you have?
1.Energy Bills Increasing
One of the earliest signs of ducts that need to be cleaned or an HVAC unit that needs to be replaced is gradually increasing energy bills. If nothing has changed in your daily routine or thermostat settings and your bills keep sliding up, the age of your unit is probably an issue.
HVAC noises can come from your home’s air ducts or your HVAC unit itself. From the blower making a louder hum noise than you have heard before to your outdoor unit making loud sounds when it turns on or off, you shouldn’t ignore strange or sudden noises. Strange noises might not mean a total failure of the system, so you should always call a technician for repairs. If you are hearing sounds from your ducts including popping, banging or clanging sounds, it’s a sign that your ductwork needs to be cleaned. Call Clean Sweep as soon as possible.
3.You Want to Improve Efficiency
At some point, an old HVAC system is outdated and will never become more efficient. To give an old unit a temporary boost, a duct cleaning can ensure that debris and dust aren’t preventing air from reaching your home. Removing any obstacles in the way of cold air will help your air conditioner to achieve maximum efficiency. However, if you are not getting the cool air that you want and your unit seems to be working overtime just to pump out tepid air, it’s time to upgrade to something new.
