This lengthy service life, however, only applies to well-maintained heating and cooling equipment. Meaning, if you haven’t been paying attention to your HVAC unit, you can expect it to fail sooner.
If your current unit is on its last legs, it’s best to get a new HVAC system before the old one completely dies. This way, you can stay cozy and comfy at home, especially during the hottest and the coldest seasons.
Ready to learn the most important things when it comes to getting your old HVAC replaced? Then let’s get right into it!
Signs That You Need a New HVAC System
Knowing how to tell that you need a new furnace or AC is even more important for someone who lives in Texas. The Lone Star State, after all, has become the hottest state ever in the US. Even if you live in a city where snow is rare (Houston for example), winter in the state can still be super cold.
That said, the last thing you want is to for your heater or cooler to completely break down during these times. Before that happens, get your HVAC system inspected and repaired. If it’s beyond repairs or it’s no longer practical to simply fix it, then replacing it is your best bet.
One way to tell that you should go with a replacement is if your existing HVAC unit is older than 10 years. Even the EPA recommends this, further citing that this could save you up to 20% on your heating and cooling bills.
Besides, older air conditioners still use the ozone-depleting refrigerant called “R-22” (Freon). As of the first of January 2020, the EPA has already banned its production and import. If your AC starts leaking, you’d have to get it recharged with very pricey reclaimed R-22.
By investing in a new HVAC system, however, you don’t have to rely on Freon anymore. New central ACs (and heater combos) use a different, less harmful type of refrigerant.
This then gives you the chance to do your part in preventing more ozone layer damage. At the same time, you get to enjoy better heating and cooling, for less.
The Average Cost of New Heating and Cooling Equipment
In the US, the average HVAC system cost for new installations range from almost $5,000 to $9,350. Include new ductwork and other add-ons to the list, and the costs can balloon to a whopping $17,000.
These figures are only the average though, so your bill could still go lower (or higher). Lower, if you qualify for special HVAC installation offers, such as no-interest financing.

Let’s take a closer look at the top qualities that make Lennox a great choice for your home’s HVAC system.
Award-Winning HVAC Manufacturer
Lennox is an award-winning company best known for its green products. These are products that have low environmental effects and use fewer resources.
In the case of Lennox, their products consume less energy, making them energy-efficient. More than that, Lennox HVAC units are durable and specifically engineered to last.
The government-run program Energy Star has also acknowledged Lennox for its energy-efficient products. Energy Star products deliver not only top-notch quality and performance but also savings.
A proof of this energy-efficiency is the high SEER ratings of Lennox-made HVAC units. These ratings are a measurement of the cooling capacity (of ACs) based on their power input. You want a unit that has a SEER rating of at least 14, as that’s what the minimum requirement in Texas.
Lennox takes SEER ratings to a whole new level though. Some of its products have almost twice as high as the state’s minimum requirement.
Innovative Thermostat Technologies
Heating and cooling equipment from Lennox also boasts of the innovative iComfort thermostats. These are smart thermostats that adjust temperature levels based on user pre-sets. These programmable temperature controls can further trim your yearly HVAC costs by 10%!
You just need to pre-set it to adjust the temp by between 7 and 10 degrees from its normal setting. Enter the specific times that you want for these changes, and the thermostat would do the rest.
iComfort thermostats also have the “Feels Like” feature. This allows the device to adjusts the indoor temperature based on humidity levels. As a result, you’ll feel the most comfortable no matter how hot or cold it is outside.
