Heating and Air Questions
What happens if you don’t service your air conditioner?
AC maintenance not only helps extend the life of your AC system it also allows a licensed technician to diagnose small problems before they turn into major ones. Choosing to not service your air conditioner may result in decreased comfort in your home as well as more frequent repairs.
What does HVAC maintenance consist of?
During HVAC maintenance a licensed heating and air technician will look over your AC system. They will check the safety controls, drain line, filter, and also condensate pump to ensure they are operating correctly. They will also diagnose any signs of wear and tear, damage, or also electrical issues for your safety. At White Sands Cooling and Heating we recommend semi-annual maintenance to keep your AC system operating at maximum efficiency. Maintenance is performed once in the spring and also once again in the fall.
What is the average life span of a central air conditioning system?
An AC system’s average life span is 10-15 years. As air conditioning systems age they lose efficiency which in turn costs you more money in electric bills. If you are seeing a steady increase in your utility bills or your home is not as comfortable as it once was it may be time to consider an AC system replacement. At Whtie Sands Cooling and Heating we offer free system replacement estimates to help determine if a new system is right for your situation.
Should I turn off my AC if it’s leaking?
AC systems consist of electrical components that can become dangerous if water becomes involved. If your AC system is leaking it should be considered an HVAC emergency and your unit should be turned off. We recommend calling a licensed HVAC professional to diagnose the cause of the leak and also repair the problem.
How much does it cost to replace a central air conditioning unit?
The cost to replace a central air conditioning unit will differ based on several factors, the size of your home, the SEER of the new unit, and also the size of the AC system you are replacing. A free AC system replacement estimate can help determine the cost of a new HVAC system for your home. A licensed HVAC technician will walk you through size, SEER, and the level of comfort you desire to help decide which AC unit is right for you.
