Preventative Maintenance

Purchasing a heating and cooling system is an investment. Just like a vehicle, it needs proper care to ensure it continues to run in a tip-top shape. Plus, most HVAC equipment manufacturers require regular maintenance for their warranties to remain valid. That’s why we created an affordable residential maintenance program.

Sometimes, it becomes more cost-efficient to replace your heating and cooling system than continuously repairing it. But how exactly do you know when it’s time for you to replace your system?

Here are 5 questions to ask when deciding whether or not to replace your HVAC system:

  • Are you constantly having to adjust your thermostat’s temperature?
  • Do your electric bills seem high?
  • Does your air conditioning system still use R22 refrigerant instead of R410?
  • Are you constantly scheduling repairs for your heating and cooling system?
  • Is your system more than 7 years old?


If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, it may be time to replace your system.
