Are you looking for some answers to your heating and cooling questions?
Buying a new air conditioner, heat pump or gas furnace is not something you are going to have to do often. In fact, air conditioners and heat pumps last around 15 years, while a gas furnace may last up to 20 years! During that time, there are many technological advancements, regulation changes, etc.
That’s why so many questions arise when replacement time does roll around. Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked HVAC questions.
Who can I call to work on my heating and cooling equipment?
When it comes to an air conditioner, gas furnace, heat pump, or any other type of HVAC system, you should ALWAYS call a professional for service, maintenance or installation. Heating and air conditioning equipment requires training, skill and knowledge in order to properly service. It isn’t ajob for the average “Mr. Fix-It.”
Who is responsible for registering my unit?
Most heating and air conditioning manufacturers require product registration for full warranty coverage. A lot of the times, a contractor will register your unit for you. But, ultimately it is up to you to make sure your system is registered. Make sure you ask your contractor whether you are responsible for registering your new HVAC system.
I am looking for technical support, who should I call?
If you think something is wrong with your system, and you are tempted to fix it yourself…stop right there! Heating and air conditioning equipment isn’t something that just anyone can fix. They are complicated pieces of equipment that require skill in order to repair and service. Drop the wrench, pick up the phone and call your local contractor.
Do companies sell HVAC parts directly to homeowners?
While policies may differ from manufacturer to manufacturer, Maytag HVAC does not supply parts directly to homeowners.
How much is an air conditioner?
Each air conditioner installation is unique. Therefore, there is no way to give an accurate price for your specific cooling system needs. A lot will depend on the state of your current central air system, which system you choose, how efficient the unit is, etc. To get an accurate picture of the price of your new air conditioner, contact your local heating and air conditioning contractor.
Do I need preventative maintenance?
Preventative maintenance is crucial for continued optimal HVAC performance. It is a good idea to schedule preventative maintenance twice a year – once before the cooling season and again before the heating season. Maintenance may even be a part of your warranty agreement!
