If you think your HVAC system needs to be replaced, knowing which questions to ask is crucial. Below are a few questions to consider:
What is the life expectancy of my heating and cooling system?
ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) is the industry organization that sets the standards and guidelines for most HVAC-R equipment. For additional info about ASHRAE visit their website.
How do I determine the age of my system?
Locate the Manufacturer’s Rating plate on your unit. It contains the Model and Serial number and possibly the date of manufacture. If not, you can look up your unit’s serial number under your specific unit’s manufacturer on the Internet. Simply type in serial number nomenclature, i.e. Lennox, Trane, Carrier, etc. into a search bar, and you will find a site that converts the serial number to a manufacture date. There, they’ll tell you how to interpret the series of numbers and letters imbedded in your serial number.
What is the estimated cost and does Goettl’s offer financing?
Each home is unique and the system investment is based on your home and family’s needs. If you require additional ductwork to ensure that you have proper airflow to all rooms or if you are adding zoning or indoor air quality components, your investment will be greater. Since newer systems last 18 to 20 years with proper maintenance, you’ll want to take the time to evaluate all of your options to ensure you are making the wisest decision. Financing plans can run as low as $54/month, and we offer very competitive financing. After a thorough evaluation of your home and family’s needs, our comfort specialists will be able to provide you with the cost of your investment while at your home.
I get my 18-year-old system maintained every year and your technician tells me it’s running just fine. Why should I consider replacing it?
We hear this often and know that regular maintenance extends the life of any system. Over time, however, the efficiency of your system degrades, and you are more likely to experience a breakdown during extreme temperatures. This breakdown can lead to a costly repair or possibly an emergency replacement. With our competitive financing offers, the savings in energy consumption and reduction in maintenance costs may offset the monthly payment of a new system. Additionally, you won’t need to worry about a system replacement on a cold January morning. Call our office today to schedule an appointment with one of our comfort advisors.
