Variety of tools to fix HVAC

Your AC Unit Is More Than 10 Years Old

If your AC unit is more than ten years old, it’s probably time for an upgrade. The older the unit gets, the less efficient it becomes and the more likely it is to break down. While our team can repair and maintain nearly any kind of air conditioner, there will be a point where it costs more to keep fixing your AC unit than it would be to install a new one.

Your Furnace Is More Than 17 Years Old

Just like with AC units, furnaces also have a lifespan. A furnace that is more than 17 years old is most likely not as energy-efficient as newer models and will need repairs more often. An older furnace can make your heating bills shoot up drastically.

Uneven Heating or Cooling in the House

If you’ve been noticing that some parts of your house are always colder or warmer than others, it could be a sign that your HVAC system is no longer up to par. A new system will evenly distribute the temperature throughout your home so you can finally say goodbye to those cold spots in winter and hot spots in summer.

Loud Noises from Your System

If your heater makes strange noises occasionally, including grinding or groaning sounds, this typically means that there are worn out parts in your AC unit or furnace. Some of the parts that eventually need to be replaced include fan blades, motors, fans, belts, pulleys, and any other moving parts in your heater can wear out after years of operation.
