Question 1: How long will my heat pump or air conditioner last?
Answer 1: The average lifespan of a system is 15 years. You may get more or less out of a system depending how much it is used.
Question 2: Why does my system need maintenance?
Answer 2: Your cooling, heating, or air quality system is responsible for approximately 65 percent of your power bill. It's in your best interest to make sure it's operating as efficiently as possible to save you money now and in the future.
Question 3: How often should my air conditioner be serviced?
Answer 3: Ignoring routine maintenance on your cooling system may result in expensive repairs down the road. Servicing twice a year can prevent damage to your unit, and can prevent a disruption during the heating or cooling season.
Question 4: How often should my AC filters be changed?
Answer 4: Filters should be changed once a month to keep air flow strong. Low air flow will reduce system effectiveness and can even damage the unit.
Question 5: What is IAQ?
Answer 5: Indoor Air Quality or IAQ is the quality of air you breathe in your home. Research shows the air inside your home has more pollutants and germs than the air outside. Well-maintained air conditioning and heating systems, improved ventilation, and home air cleaning systems can significantly lower the amount of pollutants in the air and have a major impact on the health of those who live there.
