Frequently Asked Questions:

As leaders in our field, we enjoy helping our loyal customers with answers, advice and tips. We’ve recently received some questions about other HVAC and cooling topics, and we’ve got answers. 

Can the air inside my house be polluted? If so, does it need air conditioning repair?

It certainly can. In fact, polluted air is a common byproduct of ductless and central air conditioners that are not operating at peak efficiency. Indoor air can be 100 times more contaminated than outdoor air because irritants and pollutants are in carpeting, furniture, drapes, and upholstery. Those particles eventually make their way into the air and are sucked into the ductwork in the house. From there, it is easily dispersed through the rest of the house. 

How often should I change my air filter?

Every six weeks. Both central and ductless air conditioners require clean air filters to circulate air through your house. Your air filter is one of the first things our professionals check when performing a tune-up. 

How long will my air conditioner last?

An air conditioning unit will last 10 to 20 years. As it ages, you will begin to notice more problems. This is why regular maintenance is so critical. 

Why should I replace my heater?

Replacing your heating system can save you both time and money. It also makes your home cozier and less stressful.

When do I need to replace my heating system? 

If your energy costs have risen due to an old or inefficient heating system, it’s time to replace your unit. You shouldn’t be in a constant need of repairs or wake up shivering on December mornings. Replacing your heater or furnace can save you money and maximize comfort in your home. 

When is the best time to replace my heater?

A typical heating system will last anywhere from 10 to 20 years. When it does come time for a replacement, you can do so any time of year! We recommend checking up on your furnace in the fall.
