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, so that 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 it is protected from fallen leaves and branches. 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 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 an AC unit is not serviced, then dirt and dust will buildup on its filters. Not only does that mean that you are getting restricted airflow, but you also are not breathing properly filtered 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 it is not recommended. If you run your AC without a filter then you are breathing unfiltered, dirty air. Without a filter 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 the air you breathe and live in.
