Illinois winters can be tough on aging HVAC systems. If your furnace is struggling to keep up with the cold weather, it may be time to consider investing in a replacement system. Spotting the warning signs that your heating system may be about to fail can help you plan more effectively for replacement costs and can ensure the greatest comfort for you and your family all winter long. Here are three of the most important indications that it may be time to replace your heating and cooling system in the near future.

The Age of Your System

According to the experts at ENERGY STAR, homeowners should consider replacing systems that are more than 10 years old. This can significantly reduce unexpected air conditioning and furnace repair costs and can allow your HVAC system to operate more efficiently for lower utility bills throughout the year.

Frequency of Repairs

Repeated emergency furnace repair service calls can add up to a major investment over the course of a few years. If your system requires two or more visits for service during a year, a
maintenance plan from a reputable HVAC repair company can often lower your costs and ensure the best performance from your heating and cooling system. Continuing repair costs, however, may indicate that your current system is in need of replacement.

High Utility Bills

If your heating and cooling costs are steadily increasing, it may be time to look into a replacement air conditioning and heating system. Advances in energy efficiency allow new systems to heat and cool more effectively while using less fuel, making them a cost-effective addition for your home and your family.
