Heating season is upon us, and winter is not far off.
Now is the time to make sure that your home heating system is up to the task of keeping your home warm all winter.
If it isn’t, you should replace it now before it has the chance to break down on you. There are some signs that your ductless system needs to be replaced. Easiest way to tell if your ductless system is nearing the end of his life is to look at its age. Most of the problems that cause a ductless system to break down are the direct result of wear and tear, which is the result of years of normal use. Once your ductless system gets older than 20 years, it will be more expensive to keep it running than just to replace it. Typically you shouldn’t need repairs for your ductless system more than once every couple of years. As a system gets older though, the various parts that make up the system start to wear down. Each part wears down at a different rate. You may have parts start to fail in rapid succession. If you need to have a ductless system repaired every few months, save yourself some trouble and replace it now. The same wear and tear that causes a rise in repairs causes a drop in efficiency in your system. The less efficient the system is, the longer it has to stay on in the more it will cost to operate. If your system operating cost is rising for no apparent reason, it may be time to replace it. If you need to replace your ductless system, or are experiencing more repairs than usual, you should call your local HVAC company that provides ductless services and can help you get a new efficient ductless system.
