When Its time to replace A/C or Heat Pump?

According to Energy Star guideline:

Certain telltale signs indicate it's time to consider replacing heating and cooling equipment, or improving the performance of your overall system. It may be time to call a professional contractor to help you make a change if:

Your heat pump or air conditioner is more than 10 years old.

Consider replacing it with a unit that has earned the ENERGY STAR label. Installed correctly, these high-efficiency units can save up to 20 percent on heating and cooling costs.


Some rooms in your home are too hot or too cold.

Improper equipment operation, duct problems or inadequate insulation could be the cause.


Your home has humidity problems.

Poor equipment operation, inadequate equipment, and leaky ductwork can cause the air to be too dry in the winter or too humid in the summer.


Can AC or Heat Pump operate longer than 10 years?

Short answer- yes, it can. However, one study has shown that If you keep the 10-year-old system for five more years, the money you overspent on energy bills and repair will be close to the amount you would spend on new equipment. Not to mention seating a week without A/C in Orlando in summer is not a pleasant experience!


Your equipment needs frequent repairs and your energy bills are going up.

Your cooling or heating equipment may have become less efficient and struggling during the hot summer in Orlando.


No one is home for long periods of the day and you do not have a programmable thermostat.

Install a programmable Wi-Fi thermostat, such as Honeywell T10 pro series, or have a good contractor install one and instruct you on its use — to start saving energy and money while they're away or sleeping.


Your heating or cooling system is noisy.

You could have an undersized duct system or a problem with the indoor coil of your cooling equipment.
