Your home’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system is arguably one of its most important tools. As a homeowner, it is important to understand this essential component. Read on for a few frequently asked Heating and Cooling questions.
What is the life expectancy of my HVAC system?
According to the Consortium for Energy Efficiency the average lifespan of an HVAC system is 12 to 15 years. However, as your equipment ages, it will become increasingly less efficient. If you notice that you need repairs more frequently or that your system is running louder than usual, have it evaluated by an HVAC professional. Maintenance is also increasingly important as your HVAC system ages.
Does my system require maintenance work?
You should have the ducts of your HVAC system cleaned every three to five years. Because mold, mildew, pet dandruff, smoke, dander, dust mites, dirt, and pollen can all take up residence in your ducts, regular cleanings can help to ensure a healthy air environment for you and your family. In addition, clean vents can also lower your utility bills and ensure that your system is working at its most efficient.
Should I purchase an HVAC service agreement?
The care and upkeep of your HVAC equipment can help to reduce energy bills and ensure proper system operation. As such, regular HVAC maintenance should be an important component of your home ownership. A service agreement is one way to ensure that this happens in the most efficient way possible. With that in mind, we recommend service agreements for all HVAC systems.
