Signs You Need a New HVAC System
If your current HVAC system isn’t functioning properly, it can cost your business or building a pretty penny, especially if the problem worsens. The last thing you want is for your heating or cooling system to suddenly stop working.
There are several signs you may need to upgrade your HVAC system to a newer, more efficient model:
- Increasing energy bills: Older systems use more energy to heat or cool a space.
- Weird noises: Older units can get rather loud and emit strange noises.
- Too many repairs: If your HVAC has problems more often than not, it may be beyond repair.
- Long running time: When your air conditioning or furnace runs for longer than usual, it’s a sign the unit has become less efficient.
- Old age: HVAC systems function properly for approximately a decade with good maintenance before they lose efficiency and become costly.

What are you doing to address ventilation in your building amid COVID-19? While handwashing, staying home, and physical distancing remain the most effective ways of helping reduce the spread of the virus, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also recommends schools, medical offices, and other commercial buildings have their HVAC systems inspected and/or upgraded to help improve indoor air quality and help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
Below is a list of steps the agency is recommending for commercial businesses:
- Evaluate the building to ensure it’s ready to be occupied
- Ensure ventilation systems are properly working, following guidance recommended by Standard Practice
- for Inspection and Maintenance of Commercial Building HVAC Systems
- Open windows and doors to help increase air circulation
When it comes to air filters in your HVAC system, you’ll want to pay attention to MERV ratings. MERV stands for “minimum efficiency reporting value.” It is how air filters are rated in their effectiveness to trap tiny particles. The higher the MERV rating, the more effective.
Researchers believe COVID-19 is between 0.06 to 1.4 microns, compared to pollen, dust, mold, and bacteria which have particles as small as 0.3 microns.
Hospitals, nursing homes, medical offices, and labs frequently use high-efficiency air filters with MERV ratings between 13 to 16. But retrofitting an air filter on your existing system may be difficult, especially if it isn’t equipped to accommodate a high-efficiency filter. Plus, it may actually decrease your indoor air quality, and put more strain on your system.
You’ll want to have an HVAC contractor assess your unit and install the largest MERV number filter your system can handle safely. If it cannot handle the one you want, you may want to upgrade your HVAC system.
