If your home has been recently upgraded to be more energy-efficient, you've added more insulation or installed new windows and doors, your HVAC system may now actually be too powerful for your home. It is actually a problem to have a system that is too big for your home. It is inefficient and will cause extra wear and tear on your unit which will shorten its lifespan.
Most HVAC systems last between 10 and 15 years on average. If you have kept your system regularly maintained and serviced, it may last even longer. However, there comes a time when your system is just too old to function properly and you will need to replace it.
If you find that there are rooms in your home that are too hot and others that are too cold, then it may be time to replace your HVAC system. A newer system that is the right size for your home should give you a consistent temperature no matter where you are in your home.
Your HVAC system is also responsible for controlling the humidity levels in your home. If you find that your rooms seem to be too dry in the winter and too humid in the summer then that may be a sign that your unit is not doing its job properly, or maybe it is inadequate for the size of your home.
HVAC systems also remove dust particles from your home by filtering them out of the air. After dusting or vacuuming, switch your thermostat from "auto" to "on" so that your system's filter can remove any airborne dust from your home and stop it from settling or circulating through your house. If you notice that you have a greater accumulation of dust in your home, your system may not be working properly.

"Selim came out to our place to quote a replacement air conditioner and hot water tank. He was honest, and did not try to sell us something we didn’t need. He answered all my questions promptly and honestly. I verified his reviews after we first met, and found my initial experience to be exactly as others had described. His quote was far better than any others we had received, and it wasn’t long before we had him lined up for the job. From start to finish the entire process was seamless, he didn’t rush the job(s), and made sure everything was done properly. He certainly takes pride in his work, and hands down I would recommend him to anyone looking for HVAC work. Thanks Selim!" -

In addition to heating and cooling your home, your HVAC system also manages your home's air quality. It gives ventilation by moving air throughout your home and it filters harmful particles and allergens out of the air. If your unit is no longer doing this job well, then you may want to replace it to prevent respiratory issues such as asthma attacks.
If you find that your HVAC system is constantly needing repairs, and those repairs become more costly each time, it may be time to replace it. There will come a time when it makes more sense to put your money towards a new system rather than another large repair.
There is more than one reason why your HVAC system may be noisy. If your duct system is too small, then it may sound louder. It could also be a problem with the indoor coil of your cooling equipment. If you notice squealing, screeching, rattling, and/or banging sounds coming from your HVAC system, then there is probably something wrong and you should get it looked at. If it can't be repaired, it may need to be replaced.
If you find that your heating and cooling bills are increasing year after year, it may be time to replace your HVAC system. A high-efficiency unit that has earned the Energy Star label can save you up to 20% on your heating and cooling costs.
Local, provincial, and federal governments often offer rebates for upgrading your HVAC system to a more energy-efficient one. Find out more about this in our helpful post "How Can I Install a Quality HVAC System on a Budget?"
Each year technology advances, and with that advancement comes more energy-efficient HVAC systems. Older systems simply aren't as energy efficient as newer ones. Not only will a more energy-efficient unit help you save money, but it will help you save the environment. Using less energy to heat and cool your home decreases your carbon footprint and benefits everyone.
If you want to reduce your energy consumption even more, have a qualified HVAC technician also take a look at your ductwork. Your HVAC system could be losing as much as 40% of its energy through leaky ducts. Having these leaks repaired and sealed can make a big difference, as well in lowering your energy consumption and costs.
