Q: How often should I change the filter in my HVAC to avoid the need for a furnace repair?
A: It depends on the type of filter you have. Most filters should be changed every 30 days and the life of the filter is usually stated on the package.
Q: What type of HVAC air filter is the best and most economical?
A: We usually recommend that you use either a basic blue or green fiberglass filter versus any pleated 3M filter. Pleated filters work well, but generally clog up easily and cause air restrictions on the system. Ultimately, replacing either filter type will help you avoid air conditioning repairs. If you have problems with allergies, we recommend upgrading to an electronic air cleaner.
Q: How long does a furnace or air conditioner generally last?
A: Needing emergency heating repair can be costly and inconvenient, so it is best to know how long to expect them to work. Furnaces last about 15 years on average and air conditioning units last about 10 years on average. We have seen systems last 20-30 years in some cases. The main factors that determine the life of a system is how well you maintain your furnace and air conditioner. The location is a factor as well, whether the furnace is located in a basement or a crawl space or attic can affect the lifespan. These averages can vary based on what region you are in and the type of climate.
Q: How often should I have my furnace and air conditioning serviced?
A: Most manufacturers recommend annual maintenance on their systems. This is usually stated in the owner’s manual and the manufacturer can void the warranty if there is neglect. Premier Heating and Air offers three affordable options for maintenance that range from $12-$24 a month. Contact us for details!
