How often should heaters and furnaces receive maintenance?
The amount of maintenance your heating unit will need tends to depend on it’s age. A unit that is new will not require very much care. At the same time, it is good to schedule a yearly maintenance plan to ensure that a heating unit is working correctly.
When we do a maintenance visit for a newer unit, we make sure that all parts are working correctly and that there are no foreseeable problems. For an older model, we have equipment that can help us to diagnose any potential problem. Parts of each unit that we service are checked thoroughly. If a part has become worn out and needs to be replaced, we will take care of the situation.
How long do these units typically last?
Each furnace and heater is unique and its lifespan will depend on how well it’s been treated so far. In addition to this, a unit made by one manufacturer may last for a longer period than one made by a different manufacturer. Typical units that have been made in recent years usually last between 15 to 20 years, with 12 being the average due to use. If a unit is used more often, or if services like repairs and maintenance are neglected, you can hardly expect it to last 9 years. Make sure you’re extending the lifespan and efficiency of your unit as best you can by investing in regularly scheduled maintenance.
What are some signs that you need to repair or replace your heat pump?
A sign that can be an indicator that a heat pump needs to be replaced or repaired is when a unit is not operating effectively. If you hear your unit constantly running yet you’re not seeing any results, there’s likely an efficiency issue with the unit and it’s hiking your bills up.
Even if you only suspect there might be a problem, it’s a good idea to still have the unit inspected in order to make sure all is running smoothly. A heat pump that creates excessive noises or has been requiring constant repairs clearly indicates the need for either repairs or full blown replacements.
What are some easy ways to save on your heating bills?
One of the easiest and simplest ways to save on a heating bill is to turn down a thermostat. A difference of one degree can save more money than people may expect. Besides this, a unit that is turned down by a few degrees during the day can help people save on an energy bill. A clean furnace filter can do wonders in reducing wasteful energy. The reason for this is that a dirty filter can force a heating unit to worker harder as compared to one that has a clean filter.

Are you in need of a regular cooling maintenance schedule?
A regular cooling maintenance schedule allows you to determine how often your unit will be maintained, and how many times a year. We typically recommend our customers to service their unit once a year, and in the spring so that the unit is ready to combat the Summer temperatures. When our technicians examine your units they’ll do the following:
- They’ll examine the coolant charge, any loose connections they find will be tightened, other parts will be lubricated, and they’ll also ensure that the blower motor is properly positioned.
- They will also search for any worn parts, and if any are found they’ll be able to replace them so as to ensure the efficiency of the unit.
How long can you expect to have your cooling unit working?
Your AC only has so many years of life in it. If you’re living in a home that’s been around for a while, chances are the AC was never updated and you’re working with a unit that’s nearing the end of it’s life. Typically, most AC units will last about 12 years. this statistic usually applies to units that have been serviced on a regular schedule and have been treated well. If, however, you’re using a unit that’s never been serviced and is constantly in use, you’re likely only looking at eight good years of service.
Do you want to cut down on your energy bills?
No one wants to pay as much as they already do for their energy use. We’re always looking for new and better ways to save money on our bills, so if there’s a way to save on your cooling bill, wouldn’t you take it?
If you’re looking for simple ways to save on your cooling bill, try the following:
- Install a ceiling fan: This will allow you to have a unit that can push down cool air, meaning you won’t have to depend on your AC as much.
- Take advantage of cross breezes: Open windows on opposite sides of the house and you’ll take advantage of crosswinds. With this you’ll be able to turn off your AC and get some natural cool air flowing in your home.
- AC Maintenance: This is a given. Regular AC maintenance allows your unit to remain as effective as possible, ensuring it won’t be spending extra energy trying to cool the home. This in turn can keep your cooling bills in check and you won’t be forced to spend insane amounts on it.
