Should I Repair or Replace My Heating & Cooling System?

Should I Repair or Replace My Existing Heating and Cooling System?

heating system replacement Vancouver WAA question that most homeowners will have to ask at some point in the life of their home is “should I repair or replace my heating/cooling system?”  The answer isn’t always simple, but there are some things that can help you decide what to do.  Below are some things to consider when deciding to replace or repair a heating and cooling system:

  • The age of your heating or cooling system is the first factor to consider. If your current system is ten years old or more, it may still run well, but become less efficient.  It could become economically obsolete long before you know it needs to be replaced. It’s likely that a new unit could end up paying for itself within a few years because of the money you save on your monthly electric bills.
  • Another important reason to replace your HVAC equipment is that older units are more likely to continue to have problems in the future.
  • The most important factor to consider is if your existing heating and cooling system keeps you and your family comfortable during all months of the year.

Our experienced HVAC technicians can provide an in-home consultation about the pro’s and con’s of repairing or replacing your homes existing heating and cooling system.  Contact our heating and cooling company today to learn more about today’s high efficient HVAC systems and if it is time to update your home’s system.  Our company can provide more information about HVAC financing options as well!

Ductless Air conditioning in Vancouver WA – who cares when it’s raining and cold?

We do!

Ductless air conditioning in Vancouver WA brings the comfort of air conditioning to homes that previously had to have “window” air conditioners or suffer through those hot summer nights.

With today’s technology, you can get rid of that ugly mess, the boards and hoses that come along with window air conditioning solutions! Ductless air conditioning in Vancouver WA will also improve the value of your home for resale. While on days like today, when it feels like a return to winter, it might be hard to remember that just last week we were enjoying a taste of summer and 80 degree weather, you might think “who needs air conditioning anyway”, it’s really a great time to research ductless air conditioning in Vancouver WA.

How does it work?

Ductless air conditioning systems are based on two major parts:  a small, unobtrusive, indoor air delivery unit and a larger outdoor compressor unit. The indoor unit is installed near the ceiling on an exterior wall. Holes created through the wall to the outside, and refrigerant lines are fed through them. The refrigerant lines connect to the outdoor compressor, which typically sits on a level concrete slab on the ground. The outdoor compressor is connected to a source of electricity.

When adding a vent system to your home is cost prohibitive or simply not a feasible option, choosing ductless air conditioning is the most efficient and cost effective way to gain the benefits of central air at a much lower cost of entry.

Give us a call to learn how ductless air conditioning in Vancouver WA can improve your indoor air quality!

Cold weather is a great time to think about air conditioning!

Well, maybe not really think about turning on the air conditioning – but it is a good time to consider the condition your air conditioning unit is in.

This time of year we are often called out on an emergency basis to service furnaces and fireplaces. But why not be proactive and turn an emergency furnace repair call into a consultation and evaluation about your long term heating and cooling needs?

We, of course, want to get your furnace up and running as soon as possible to insure you are comfortable and warm during these winter months. However, when the weather is cold it is also often dry and clear here in the Vancouver and Portland metro area.

As long as we can get to you air conditioning unit we can clean it and service it too.

If you don’t already have forced air cooling, the time to get it is if / when you are replacing your furnace. In many cases, purchasing both solutions at the same time can save thousands of dollars when compared to purchasing and installing air conditioning and furnace solutions at different times.
