Double Your Pleasure: Checking the Heating and Cooling Systems in Your MetroWest Home
Now that winter is past and summer is coming, greater MetroWest area homeowners can save money by getting their heating and cooling systems inspected and tuned-up at the same time.
Time for a Tune-Up
It’s hard to remember to schedule annual air conditioning maintenance before the temperature starts to soar but flipping the switch on an HVAC unit that hasn’t been inspected after lying dormant all winter can lead to trouble. Scheduling a tune-up by one of the licensed professionals at Nicholson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning ensures the system will run at peak efficiency and help identify any problems needing correction.
Should You Replace Your AC?
It might be time to consider replacing your HVAC unit. The average lifespan for an air conditioner is about 20 years. According to Energy.gov, even if it’s still in working order, it can make financial sense to replace air conditioners that have seen a decade or more of service:
Most central air conditioning units last about 20 years. At 12 years old, your air conditioning unit is passing its mid-life point. Even if your air conditioner is only 10 years old, you may save 20-40 percent of your cooling energy costs by replacing it with a newer, more efficient model.
Signs your air conditioning unit may need replacement include: frequent repairs, running inefficiently, taking longer than normal to cool your home, and rising utility bills.
Don’t Forget the Heating
Even though winter is finally behind us, greater MetroWest area homeowners can take advantage of the opportunity to schedule a heating system inspection and tune-up at the same time their HVAC is being examined. This will give our professionals the chance to spot any small problems with the heating system before they require expensive fixes.
