It’s been a frigid winter in Nashville, with temperatures dipping down to the single digits on more than a handful of nights this year. It’s on those nights when one comes to really appreciate a well-functioning, efficient HVAC system.
If you have a newer, well-maintained HVAC system, that’s great. But if you’re worried about the reliability and efficiency of your heating equipment, it may be time to consider a replacement system, before you find yourself in need of emergency HVAC service in the middle of a cold winter night.
When is it time to replace your HVAC system?
ENERGY STAR® has a list of “certain telltale signs” that indicate it’s time to consider replacing your heating equipment, or improving the performance of your overall system.
Signs to replace your HVAC system include:
- A heat pump that is more than 10 years old
- A furnace or boiler that is more than 15 years old
- Select rooms in your home are too cold
- Your heating system is noisy
- Your equipment needs frequent repairs
- Your heating bills are rising
If you have any concerns about your HVAC system, we recommend getting your unit inspected by a contractor with licensed technicians, one who can help you determine the right size and type of HVAC system for your home.
Who is qualified to replace your HVAC System?
It’s a good idea to work with a contractor who maintains a close working relationship with top manufacturers of heating (and cooling) equipment. At Jewell Mechanical, Rheem®, American Standard®, and Mitsubishi Electric are just a few of the HVAC brands we service and install.
For example, we’re a Customer Care Dealer for American Standard in Middle Tennessee and a Diamond Dealer for Mitsubishi. We also service, maintain, and install systems for more than a dozen other top brands, including Carrier, Honeywell, Lennox, Samsung, and Trane, among others.
If it turns out you need or want to purchase a new unit and duct work, but aren’t sure how you are going to pay for it, Jewell offers HVAC financing.
The application process for a Home Projects credit card (which offers a very competitive interest rate) is simple and straightforward. You can apply online from your desktop, tablet, or smartphone and get an on-the-spot credit decision. Best of all, once you’ve been approved for financing, you won’t have to fret about covering the entire cost of your new system in the wake of the holiday season.
