Frequently Asked Questions

When should I have my heating and cooling equipment serviced?

We recommend having your heating and cooling units inspected at least once a year. A good time to do this is right before winter ends. You will have a working unit for the summer months.

Should I cover my outdoor unit in the fall and winter?

Yes. winterizing your outdoor unit will ensure that you protect it from fallen leaves, branches, and other debris. It will also protect your unit from snowfall, significantly reducing rust accumulation throughout the wet winter months.

What is the average life of a central air conditioning unit?

The Department of Energy and HVAC professionals agree that the average expected air conditioning service life of an HVAC system is 12-15 years. This does not mean that after 12 years, you should immediately replace your system. It just means that you are more likely to experience components wearing out and problems starting to surface.

What happens if AC is not serviced?

If you don’t periodically service your AC unit, then dirt and dust will buildup on its filters. Not only does that mean that airflow is restricted, but you also are not breathing clean air. It is worth the time and financial investment to have your AC serviced so it does not lead to larger issues down the road.

Will AC work without a filter?

An AC will work without a filter, but we always recommend it. If you run your AC without a filter then you risk damaging it and breathing unfiltered dirty air. Dirt and dust can access your AC unit very easily, without having to make it past any barriers. This can cause damage to your unit very quickly, and affects the quality of air you breathe and live in.
