Frequently Asked Questions

Determining whether your AC system needs repair or replacement can depend on several factors. Here are some key points to consider:

  1. Age of the System: If your AC system is more than 10-15 years old, it might be time to consider replacement, especially if it requires frequent repairs or isn’t energy-efficient.

  2. Repair Costs: Frequent and costly repairs can be a sign that your AC system is nearing the end of its useful life. If the cost of a repair approaches 50% of the value of a new system, it’s generally more cost-effective to replace it.

  3. Energy Bills: An increase in your energy bills could indicate that your AC system is losing efficiency. Older systems tend to work harder to produce the same level of cooling, which consumes more energy.

  4. Cooling Efficiency: If some rooms are too hot or too cold, or if the system struggles to maintain a consistent temperature, there could be issues with your AC system that might require either major repairs or replacement.

  5. Noise and Odors: Unusual noises or smells coming from your AC system can indicate serious problems. If these issues are persistent, it’s advisable to get a professional evaluation.

  6. Refrigerant Type: If your system uses R22 refrigerant, which is now phased out due to environmental regulations, repairing it might become increasingly expensive and difficult. Replacement with a newer, more environmentally friendly system might be a more sensible option.

To make an informed decision, it’s best to schedule a consultation to inspect your system and provide an assessment based on its current condition, performance, and potential future issues.

Yes, repairing your HVAC system can definitely help with reducing energy costs. Here’s how:

  1. Improved Efficiency: A well-maintained HVAC system runs more efficiently. Repairs can ensure that all components of the system are in good working condition, which minimizes the energy needed to heat or cool your home.

  2. Lower Energy Consumption: When your HVAC system is damaged or malfunctioning, it may have to work harder and longer to maintain the desired temperature, leading to higher energy consumption. Fixing problems like leaks in the ductwork, issues with the thermostat, or mechanical failures can help the system use less energy.

  3. Extended Equipment Life: Regular repairs and maintenance can extend the life of your HVAC system. A system that’s in good condition is less likely to require energy-wasting, short-term fixes and more likely to perform optimally.

  4. Consistent Temperatures: When your HVAC system is working correctly, it maintains consistent temperatures more efficiently, avoiding the extra energy used in frequent cycling on and off.

Overall, investing in timely repairs not only saves you money on energy bills but also enhances the comfort of your home and can prevent more costly problems down the line

It’s generally recommended to schedule maintenance for your HVAC system at least twice a year. This helps ensure that the system is running efficiently and can help prevent unexpected breakdowns. Here are a few specific tips:

  1. Heating Maintenance: Schedule this in early fall before the heating season begins. This can include checking the furnace operation, inspecting the heat exchanger, and replacing the air filter.

  2. Cooling Maintenance: Schedule this in the spring before the cooling season starts. Tasks typically include cleaning the condenser coils, checking the refrigerant levels, and calibrating the thermostat.

Regular maintenance not only extends the lifespan of your HVAC system but also helps maintain its energy efficiency, which can reduce your energy bills. If you live in a region with extreme weather conditions, such as Phoenix, Arizona, you might consider scheduling bi-annual maintenance to ensure your system handles the intense summer heat effectively.
