Most people are aware of the benefits that an HVAC unit provides, however,
how it works is a mystery to them. Your HVAC unit is one of the most important
systems in the home, and it would be helpful if you understood what it
takes to keep it in working order. It is alright to ask questions about
the unit that you have, and at Phoenix Air Conditioning we are more than
happy to provide you with the answers that you need to help you take better
care of your unit. Keep reading for answers to a few of the most common
Q: What is the life expectancy of my unit?
Usually, the lifespan for an HVAC unit is anywhere between 10-25 years.
However, the longer you want your HVAC unit to last, the more regular
your maintenance should be. The unit should be cleaned and serviced at
least twice per year to ensure that it provides peak performance, and
will last long as long as possible.
Q: What Carrier HVAC equipment will I need?
This will depend on a number of factors, the number of people in the household,
the size of the home itself, and the type of fuel source you have chosen.
One of our trusted technicians will be glad to assist you in choosing
the best option for you and your household's needs.
Q: Can you run the air conditioning unit without a filter?
You should never run your air conditioning unit without a filter. If you
do not have a filter, the unit is open to all types of materials and particles
that could cause it to perform poorly. Dust particles and other materials
could enter into the unit and prevent it from working, and could also
affect you and the other residents' health. You should also make sure
that your filter is changed regularly so that it can trap as many particles
as possible. If you feel that you need a new air filter, or that your
existing air filter needs to be cleaned, then don’t hesitate to
call Phoenix Air Conditioning! We check on your air filters as a part
of our regular AC maintenance services.
