All good things come to an end, and after spending hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on your air conditioning and heating system, it’s time to put it out of its—and your—misery. Your HVAC system in your home or business keeps people comfortable and controls the building’s environment.
There is only so much you can do to repair an older system. When you’ve reached the limit, a certified Texas HVAC contractor like FIX IT! Services can upgrade your system so you can start living more comfortably and saving energy throughout the year.

How to Know if You Need a New HVAC System
If you’re thinking about replacing your old HVAC system, here are a few signs to look for when your system is ready to call it quits:
1) High utility bills
If your house is equipped with an older HVAC system, you may have seen your energy bills rise over the past few months or years. As your HVAC system ages, it becomes more inefficient and has to work harder to cool or heat your home.
By calling FIX IT! Services, one of the best residential and commercial HVAC contractors in Austin, you can find out whether your high bills are being caused by a system that isn’t functioning properly or whether you have a leak in your ducts.
2) Varied temperatures in different parts of your home
If your HVAC system is struggling to maintain a consistent temperature from room to room, you know there’s an issue. In the summers, one room is cool and others are hot, or vice versa. Look at the ductwork in your attic and feel around to see if there are leaks. Sometimes you can hear the air hissing from gaps in the ducts—especially in the areas where the ducts are connected to the HVAC system.
The team at FIX IT! can check for any leaks in your ductwork or malfunctions in your HVAC system. With our decades of experience in AC repair, replacement and maintenance, we can assess, diagnose and repair the issue through parts replacement or full system replacement.
3) HVAC consistently runs
When the right temperature is reached by the system, the compressor should turn off until the room becomes warmer again. If you see that the AC keeps running despite reaching the right temperature, this could be an indication that your air conditioning system is no longer functioning well.
4) Outdated HVAC
Older HVAC systems typically use more energy and break down often. Watch your energy consumption and billing. Older systems will cost you higher bills while providing less comfort. Do your research, as newer systems feature high SEER ratings, have programmable thermostats, improve air quality and have a variable speed motor, providing your home with very effective cooling and heating power.
5) Spending more on repairs
Maintenance costs are inherent with any system you have or a new one you’ll buy. With older systems, you’re noticing frequent repairs. Think about how many times technicians have visited your house for HVAC-related issues over the past year and over the past month. Add up all the service fees and repair bills you’ve paid in order to see if keeping your old HVAC still makes sense.
