Is It Time To Replace My HVAC Heating or Cooling System?

There are a few reasons why a homeowner should consider replacing their existing HVAC system: Age of the system, the efficiency of the system, and the cost of a repair. An HVAC system lifespan is typically somewhere between 15-20 years, but can be shorter if used in extreme conditions, or if the maintenance is neglected. As your HVAC system gets older, it becomes more and more inefficient as well. Today’s HVAC systems can be 60% more efficient than those models manufactured just 10 years ago. If your utility bills are through the roof, your monthly savings on your utility bill could be an attractive way to offset the cost of getting a new HVAC system. But, even before you’ve hit 15-20 years of the HVAC unit’s life, random failures can occur. If the cost of the repair is high, it may be a good time to consider replacing the entire unit.

How Expensive is a New Heating System or Air Conditioner?

There are many factors that go into pricing a new heating and air conditioning system. These factors include the type of unit, the size and unique characteristics of the home, the size and condition of the ductwork currently in the home, as well as accessories such as thermostats and air cleaners. This is why it is important to schedule a time to have a technician from Mick’s Heating & Air Conditioning inspect your home and give you a free consultation.

How Long Will a New HVAC System Last?

When a system is serviced on a regular basis, and preventative maintenance is performed as needed, an air conditioning unit should last 12-15 years. Gas furnaces should last as long as 20-25 years.

What Kind of Warranty is Available on New HVAC Systems?

All parts have a limited written warranty. If any parts fail as a result of normal use and service during the warranty period, a replacement part will be provided.

I Need a New HVAC System, But Can’t Afford the Total Amount Up-Front… Do You Have Options for Financing a New HVAC System or Making Payments on the Installation Costs?

How important is “Indoor Air Quality”?

Indoor air quality is much more important than people realize. Studies quoted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) show that the air inside your home can have 100 times more pollutants than the air outside of your home. Additionally, the American Lung Association lists poor indoor air quality as one of the top five environmental risks to the American public. This is due to mold, bacteria, allergens, dust, toxins, chemicals, and fumes from products like cleaning supplies, carpets, and finishes on furniture and fixtures. Additionally, older air conditioning units are a breeding ground for micro-organisms to grow, and then get distributed throughout the home. The technicians at Mick’s Heating & Air Conditioning are trained to test and analyze all of the factors that contribute to poor air quality in your home.
