Houston HVAC Replacement

Quality Heating & Air Conditioning Installations by Certified, Award-Winning Professionals

Replacing your old and inefficient furnace or air conditioner is a big decision and one that only happens once in a lifetime for most. When choosing a central heating or air conditioning system for your home, however, there are some factors that are beyond your control, such as code compliance and unit size. State and municipality codes will determine how your system is installed so that it meets minimum safety and efficiency requirements. The size and layout of your home will determine how large your new heating and air conditioning system needs to be.

Call Universal Home Experts today for quality HVAC system replacements at down to earth prices.

The areas in which you have the most choice are as follows:

  • Efficiency levels
  • Indoor air quality options
  • Programmable thermostats

The most important decision you make, though, is your choice of contractor. To ensure fast, efficient HVAC system replacement in Houston, always choose an experienced, certified professional who is licensed bonded, and insured. This protects you from any problems that may arise.

How Often Should You Replace Your HVAC System?

An HVAC system is a significant investment homeowners make, and it only makes sense to want to get the most use out of it as possible. On average an HVAC unit can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years depending on certain factors and the climate you live in. Typically after the 10 year mark is where HVAC systems really start to show their age and develop more problems as they wear down. Most experts recommend replacing your HVAC system every 10 to 15 years.

Factors That Effect HVAC System's Lifespan:

  • Poor maintenance services - The most important factor in determining the life of an HVAC system is proper upkeep and maintenance throughout its lifetime. Many homeowners neglect getting annual maintenance done and it can drastically shorten the lifespan of an HVAC unit.
  • Air filters - Regularly changing the air filter in your system is a great way of ensuring your HVAC unit isn't overworking itself to push through dirty or clogged filters. It's important to change your filter at least once a month.
  • Location - Where you live plays a huge role in the longevity of the system. Climates that are drier tend to have dust accumulate around the coils and filters more frequently. If there is too much humidity or too little, this causes how you feel about the indoor temperature to change. Frequently adjusting the thermostat can also, overtime, lead to shorter lifespans.
  • Constant Operation - HVAC units that run constantly around the clock see more wear and tear in shorter periods of time than units that don't run constantly. The more your unit runs the more frequent filters need to be changed, and more maintenance and cleanings are required to keep up with the demand.
