Why is it important to regularly maintain your systems?

Whatever type of system that a resident has for heating their home, it is vital to not wait until something breaks to have it serviced. These are highly complex system, but many of the most common issues can be avoided altogether with regular maintenance.

For basic heaters, furnaces, and climate controls systems, owners should have them thoroughly inspected and maintained at least once a year. During these service calls, one of our specialists will be able to check thermostat settings, inspect the piping, clean the condensation line, and ensure optimal performance.

Want to know how long your unit is supposed to last?

When regular maintenance is carried out and major repair and replacement issues are avoided, these devices will last for quite some time. The average unit can last anywhere between 13 and 20 years, but most home units are going to run relatively well for at least 15 years.

Obviously, the longevity of the machine will be affected by other factors such as how often it is used, how frequently maintenance is carried out, and the exact make and model of the device. Along with regular filter changes and maintaining decent moisture levels, owners may be able to increase the life of their heater or furnace by a few years.

When should you repair or replace your heat pump?

Heating pumps are used in a wide variety of devices and machines, but within an HVAC system they could be used heavily throughout the year. This important component allows the HVAC system to transfer heat as it is created instead of relying on the use of extra fuel, and this is why owner should know when it may be time to seek out repairs or a replacement. If a heating pump is leaking or icing over, it should be replaced immediately. Otherwise, heat pumps can last for anywhere from five to ten years depending on usage.

What can you do to save on your heating bill during winter?

One of the biggest advantages of regular heater and furnace maintenance is to ensure efficiency, but there are a few steps that residents can take to prevent wasting their own money on heating bills.

First, the entire house should be insulated throughout the walls and attic and insulation should be checked regularly for rips or tears. Cracks around windows and doors also account for quite a bit of wasted energy and residents should take a closer look at any possible openings at least a few times a year.

In addition to this, our heating specialists can help change filters and take a closer look at ducts in order to ensure that no energy is wasted on that end.

Is it time to maintain your AC unit?

As a rule of thumb, we advise that customers service or maintain their air conditioners at least once per year. The cooling system should at least be checked just before or during Spring each year, this way it’ll be ready for the Summer heat. If the system happens to be oil-fired, maintenance, cleaning, and servicing is even more crucial.

Allowing your air conditioner to receive maintenance on a regular basis will:

  • Increase its dependability
  • Allow you to find and fix problems before they happen
  • Keep the unit running at maximum efficiency
  • Prolong the life of the unit
  • Keep the unit operating in a safe and orderly fashion

All of these things will also help you to save money as well.

How long should your AC unit last you?

A quality air conditioner installed by a reputable company will more than likely last for up to 13 years. However, these are very vague assumptions. There are many different factors that can affect how long an air conditioner stays working for. Of course, some factors are unavoidable, but there are many that are in your control.

Failing to service the air conditioner, placing the unit in an area with no shade, the quality of components or repairs, and other negative factors can all hurt the longevity of the system.

It’s worth it to note that consumers that live in hotter areas will often see much shorter life expectancies from their air conditioners than consumers that live in cooler areas. This is simply because air conditioners in warmer climates are working a lot harder.

Should you invest in professional filter replacements?

It’s likely that you’ve heard many times in the past that it’s important to regularly replace your air conditioner filter. However, it’s not likely that anyone has disclosed why this is important, other than the fact that you’ll wind up with weakened air flow from a dirty filter. However, there is much more to it.

Leaving a dirty air filter in an air conditioner can lead to higher utility bills from the unit working harder, and ultimately a breakdown from dirt and dust cycling through the unit. Make sure you regularly check the filter in your unit so you can avoid having a unit that is working on overdrive, and you’ll avoid the harmful contaminants associated with a clogged filter.

What are some easy ways to save more on your cooling costs?

Lastly, if you find that your electric bill is a bit higher than you’d like due to your air conditioner, these are some easy ways to lower your cooling costs:

  • Keep the sun out by closing the shades
  • Turn the AC unit off when you leave or program the temperature to rise a bit while you’re at work
  • Avoid cooking with the oven
  • Invest in a ceiling fan for each room
