Living in Las Vegas, you’re quite familiar with the desert heat. What you might not know is that your HVAC system could be too old to be working as well as it should. A tune-up from an HVAC company can help you decide if it’s time to replace your outdated AC system.
Be Cool With a Smart Thermostat
Part of an HVAC upgrade can be a smart thermostat. Your temperature can be remotely adjusted to have your home cooled down by the time you get home. It is also possible to have different parts of your home at different temperatures, which you can decide on based on a room’s use or personal preference of the room’s occupant. A smart thermostat will pick up when to raise and lower the temperature based on your family’s habits and your preferred temps at different times of day. With a quick check of your phone, you will be able to see how it is programmed and make changes accordingly.
More Comfort With Better Efficiency
A new high efficiency central air conditioner will dispense cooled air more evenly throughout your home unless you choose to have one area at another temperature. It will use less energy to provide more quality comfort with less noise and potentially less upkeep needed. The new systems run cleaner and are more capable of keeping the allergen level down in your home.
Improve Your Health With Fewer Allergies and Respiratory Problems
The older your HVAC unit, the more dust, animal dander and pollen have gone through the duct system. Even with cleaning, it may never be 100% like brand-new. Some allergens may be left behind in the vents and filter areas that you can only get rid of by total replacement of the system. Upgrading to a new HVAC system will be helpful to your physical health as well as keeping you more comfortable without putting stress on your old unit.
No Worrying About Biological Growth Inside Your AC
Las Vegas may be in the middle of the desert but the temperature and dampness in your air conditioner can be the perfect breeding ground for biological growth. Spores, whether you have a diagnosed allergy to it or not, can cause migraines, sore throats, neurological and respiratory problems. If you have any symptoms that could be related to pathogens, and before your health declines anymore, a new HVAC system could literally save your life.
If you are worried about the health risks of your old HVAC system, an HVAC service can check out your ductwork and evaluate it for biological growth and other possible health hazards. After a diagnosis of your system, you will be able to make a more informed decision.
Less Noise From Your AC
Older HVAC units can tend to become noisier as they age, when they turn on and off and when they are adjusting within themselves. Sometimes older systems make random noises if they need to be oiled or from loose screws rattling with each off and on of the system. When you’re talking, reading, watching a movie or just enjoying the quiet, you don’t want to be interrupted by noises from your air conditioner. A new HVAC system is quieter to the point that you may forget about it unless you need to change the temperature, or it’s scheduled for routine maintenance. Sticking to a regular maintenance schedule can ensure your central air conditioning system continues giving you comfort for many years.
