Choosing a Company/Contractor
Find a contractor who is suggested by a friend or neighbor to ensure quality of work.
Licensed & Insured
Check to see if contractor is licensed and has insurance in case of injury or damages.
Check for proper certification so you receive professional work.
Guaranteed & Warranties
Verify all costs and ensure the price will not change after work is done. Obtain a contract guarantee in writing so you are covered. Better contractors who are confident in their work will offer a better warranty, too.
Do not always take the lowest bid on your project as this may result in lower quality work.
Look for reviews, testimonials, and/or references so you get a better understanding of who you are hiring.Call 1-877-408-0396 Now!
Time to Replace?
HVAC systems last about 10-20 years and furnaces last about 15 years. If yours is that old it may be time to replace.
Use the 5,000 rule to gauge the condition of your system: Multiply the age of the equipment by the repair cost, if it exceeds $5,000, then replace the unit. If less, consider repairing it.
If you are dealing with constant breakdowns during the hottest and coldest part of the year, it may be cheaper to invest in a new system.
Purchasing a high efficient system may make you eligible for tax credits. It could save you up to 30% on your system.
Updating your HVAC system will use less energy which is better for the environment and your energy bill as well.Call 1-877-408-0396 Now!
Important Choice Factors
The size of your system means its capacity. Systems are measured in BTU's (British Thermal Units) or "ton(s)". One ton equals 12,000 BTUs. The correct size you need depends on the total area you need cooling/heating.
Check for the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating). This indicates the amount of cooling the unit delivers for each watt of electricity. A good SEER rating is 13 or greater.
Look for a service plan with regular inspections and reasonable repair costs.
Programmable thermostat can reduce your energy costs by 20%.
If updating your system, do not assume you need the same size. If you have upgraded your windows or insulation, you may need less cooling. On the other hand, if you have had any home additions you may need a larger system to cool your house down.Call 1-877-408-0396 Now!
