When it comes to a major maintenance or replacement service, you want to make sure that the technicians assigned to your home are highly qualified. The best way to ensure this is to contact an accredited HVAC company in your local area. Doing the repairs yourself may cause more damage to the air conditioning unit, so it's best to leave it to the experts. When choosing a service provider, there are several factors you should consider. First, find out how long the company has been in business.
This will give you an idea of their reliability and reputation. Additionally, make sure that their employees have the necessary qualifications and experience. If they don't have the right credentials, they may not be able to carry out the repairs correctly. One of the most important qualifications for HVAC technicians is NATE certification. This certification requires technicians to pass a test of general HVAC knowledge and at least one specialized installation or service exam.
NATE certifications are awarded in areas such as air conditioning, gas or oil heating, air distribution, air-to-air heat pumps, geothermal (geothermal) heat pumps, and the efficiency of air conditioning systems. The average lifespan of an air conditioning system in the United States is 15 to 20 years. However, in Florida, where air conditioners are used almost year-round and are exposed to high levels of humidity, salt water and sulfur, this lifespan can be much lower - between 10 and 12 years. If you replace your 15-year-old 12 SEER unit with a 16 SEER2 unit, you could potentially save up to 40% on cooling costs each year*. An older system may be operating close to a 10 SEER level due to decreased efficiency over time or poor maintenance. By upgrading to a system with an even higher SEER2 rating, your potential savings will increase. If you're looking for a qualified air conditioning company that you can trust, don't hesitate to contact us.
