Is Your HVAC Sytem Appropriate for the Age of Your Home?

Is your twickenham-national-regsiter-signjpg-53adb4c3c4eb7579HVAC system appropriate for the age of your home?

of 31 years. Most homeowners don’t think about their heating or air conditioning system and whether or not it is adequate for their home until something breaks and is in need of repair, or it simply quits working all together.

can remember, considering an updated, more efficient model will save you money on your energy bill
and maybe more importantly, make your home more comfortable for you and your family.
If your current HVAC system has a SEER rating of 10 or below, replacing it with a system with a 20
SEER rating will make your system 50% more efficient. Today’s systems also come with advanced
technology that helps maintain a comfortable humidity level and provides cleaner air to breathe in your

Replacing your home’s HVAC system, even though it may seem to be working properly, might be a
similar situation such as trading in an older model automobile. A new model will probably get better gas
