This list is not exhaustive, but it should give you an idea of the sort of things to watch out for. If your energy bills sharply rise, then this is a sign that something is preventing your system from working properly.
To counteract the obstruction and produce the same effect, your AC or heater must use more energy. This problem could potentially become so severe that the system ends up tripping your circuit breaker.
Air Conditioning and Heating Installation
Our technicians can install all of the same kinds of equipment that they can repair. Sometimes, your system may be so old or so broken that it’s simply no longer worth it to try and pay for repairs. An air conditioning unit or furnace that’s more than about 15 years old is already likely in this state. If the system is more than 20 years old, it almost certainly is.
As your system ages, its performance inevitably declines, even if you’ve made timely repairs and conducted regular maintenance over the course of its lifespan. One important sign that your system is old enough to replace is that it breaks down frequently and even the most extensive repairs are not enough to keep it functioning for long.
The other major reason to call for Real Time Bros Heating & Air Conditioning‘s installation services is that you’ve moved into a new building and require a new HVAC system. We can install both central ACs and ductless minisplits. Whether you need a central furnace or a heat pump, we can take care of you.
We Also Do Maintenance
Maintenance may not be as prominent in most people’s minds as repair and installation services are, but it is absolutely critical to keeping your system functioning. HVAC industry professionals regularly recommend that everyone schedule professional maintenance on their heating, AC and ventilation systems at least once per year.
There is good reason for this. Over time, little things can go wrong with your system. Debris may accumulate around vents, coils or other critical components. Parts may come loose or lose lubrication. Wiring may get tangled or frayed. Pipes may become leaky or clogged. The ultimate purpose of an HVAC system tune-up is to detect issues like this and handle them so that they don’t fester into bigger problems.
There’s one final practical reason why maintenance is important. Most HVAC system manufacturers do not let you take advantage of their product warranties until you can prove that you’ve paid for annual maintenance. If you make the mistake on trying to shirk on maintenance, you could end up paying much more in repair or installation costs.
