Questions to Ask Your HVAC Technician
When you hire an HVAC technician to perform air conditioner service or repair, it’s a good time to ask him any questions you have. This can help you stay on top of proper maintenance and care of your residential air conditioner and give you a chance to become familiar with its components.
- What’s the condition of my AC unit? If you called an HVAC technician to your home to perform an inspection or routine maintenance on your air conditioner, it’s good to know if anything needs to be repaired or replaced. It’s also a great chance to become familiar with how your HVAC system works.
- What maintenance should I perform? As the homeowner, there are several things you can do yourself to keep your air conditioner running smoothly between regular servicing. Ask your technician how often you should replace air filters and whether he recommends a certain brand.
- How long will my air conditioning system last? The average AC unit will last between eight and twenty years, but an aging system will need servicing more often and requires regular maintenance to extend its life. A newer residential HVAC system will require typical maintenance, but can save you money in the long run if your current air conditioner is showing its age.
- If I replace my old HVAC system, will I boost my home’s efficiency? Air conditioner replacement offers many advantages, including improved efficiency. Newer systems have higher SEER ratings, and their greater efficiency means lower utility bills, less energy use, and a cooler home. An efficient air conditioner doesn’t need to work as hard to cool your house as an older, inefficient unit .
