When should I replace my HVAC system?
I have been living in this house for the past 20 years.
I don’t see myself moving out of this home any time in the near future-I raised my children here and I hope to host my grandchildren here as well soon. My experience with this home has been phenomenal. One thing I always tell people and they are surprised to hear is that I have never had to replace my HVAC system. That’s right. In the entire 20 years that I have lived here, I have never replaced my central heating or central air conditioning unit. That must be some sort of HVAC record or something. I have never heard of anyone else being able to say that. Now, to be fair, I have certainly had HVAC repair calls. I have kept my HVAC provider very busy by sending out HVAC technicians to work with my tired old furnace and/or central air conditioner. I regularly have my ductwork cleaned and I always change my air filters once a month. Maybe good maintenance has kept this HVAC system alive. Even still, I can’t believe how well things have gone and continue to go with this old HVAC system. I should ask, though, when do I need to replace this HVAC system? It’s still running just fine. Does there come a point where I really just need to get a new HVAC system or if I should just keep this HVAC system for all it’s worth. I know that I’ll never have another 20-year HVAC system and I’m a little nervous about replacing this one. What do you think I should do? Should I keep chugging with this HVAC system or should I upgrade my HVAC system before this one bites the dust?
