How Can I Prevent Air Conditioner Repairs?
The number one way to avoid an unexpected repair is by catching problems before they lead to breakdowns. This is why we always recommend routine annual maintenance to our customers, whether by Heritage or another licensed provider. During your maintenance, Heritage inspects every inch of your system (indoor and outdoor) for all of the common issues listed above, as well as uncommon problems that are harder to detect without training and specialized equipment, such as refrigerant leaks.
When Is It Time for a New Air Conditioner?
A well-maintained AC system can last anywhere from ten to 15 years and sometimes more. What really determines the lifespan of your system is crucial components such as the condenser coil and evaporator coil. Over time, leaks can compromise these components and lead to costly replacements. Eventually, it becomes a better investment to replace the system completely. If your system is having a hard time cooling or doesn’t cool at all, these may be indicators of a larger problem that could lead to a replacement being an option.
There’s never a good time to have to replace your AC system, but when it happens, Heritage is here to make the process simple so you can be cool again in no time. Our dedicated install team will provide you with a customized solution for your home and needs, and in most cases can be at your door to install your new system the very next day. We’ll also handle any permitting required by your town so you can be sure you’ve received a quality installation.
