Frequently Asked Questions
Based upon research and unit specifications, it has been found that most air conditioners have an average lifespan of 12-15 years while the average furnace lasts 15-20 years. Of course, these numbers are rough estimates. The better you care for your unit through routine maintenance, the longer your unit will last. If you do not care for your unit, this time will most likely be shorter.
It is recommended you have your units inspected at least twice a year, in the fall and spring. This allows us to check the filters, pumps, and other parts of the unit to ensure that they are properly working. If we find a problem, we can replace it on the spot so that you will be prepared for the winter or summer. Learn more about our ComfortCare Club!
According to The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers, it is recommended that the indoor humidity level be between 30 and 60 percent.
Here are some more tips for reducing your utility bills:
- Setting your thermostat at a temperature that is comfortable without being extreme. Your unit will have to work much harder to keep your home 60 degrees in the summer rather than setting it at a more conservative temperature of 73.
- Keep filters clean according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
- Do not block the vents in your home with drapes or furniture. This will limit the effectiveness of your units.
- Consider replacing an older unit with a newer model. Many times, new efficient systems pay for themselves in energy savings over time.
