If you want to invest in a new HVAC system to replace your old one, you might’ve been thinking of buying one at a big box store in your area. After all, it makes sense to go to a place where all your home improvement needs can be met at once. Keep in mind, however, that these retail stores are focused on sales, not service. Even if they do provide services, they won’t be on par with what you can expect from a local HVAC company.
A furnace can last 15 to 20 years with regular maintenance, but there are certain things that can extend or shorten the lifespan of your HVAC equipment. HVAC Construction, one of the leading HVAC contractors in the area, discusses more below.
Today’s air conditioning units are quieter than ever, which means most people forget about them even when they remain on for most of the day. Having one in your home is a convenience, and not just because it provides indoor comfort. While It naturally hums during operation, at some point you might hear unusual sounds coming from it, which suggests that something is wrong and you need to call an HVAC technician as soon as possible.
In the course of a day, your air conditioning and heating system circulates a lot of air throughout your home. The outdoor unit draws in air from the outside, which is then cooled (or heated, depending on the season) and distributed to different rooms throughout the house via vents and registers. For the most part, any dust from the outside gets caught by the filters that line your HVAC system, maintaining your indoor air quality. Sometimes, however, dust can still find its way indoors.
The modern furnace boasts features that older models could only dream of— higher efficiency ratings, quieter operation and a dozen other bells and whistles that translates to benefits for you, the homeowner. If you’re thinking about upgrading from your clunky old heater to a shiny new unit, consider the benefits of scheduling your replacement during the summer season.
