Frequently Asked Questions

You have questions? We have answers!

Q. How do I know if my heating and airconditioning system needs replacing or just a repair?

A. Excellent question. Here are some factors to consider:

  • Age of your current system: A ban enacted in 2010 by the Environmental Protection Agency on the air conditioning system refrigerant R-22 is putting AC suppliers, technicians and customers like you in a precarious position.

Chlorodifluoromethane, also known as R-22, is a hydrochlorofluorocarbon gas used as a refrigerant in residential and commercial systems built before 2010. Because of its chemical structure, which contains chlorine, R-22 is considered a greenhouse gas with ozone-depleting and environmentally hazardous potential. Therefore, repair costs to systems still using R-22 can be quite expensive.

  • Type of system: Depending on whether you have the typically less expensive “builder’s model” or more expensive “consumer’s choice” system will determine the efficiency as well as the comfort and convenience.
  • Return on investment: Is the cost of repairing worth it? Total the cost you have spent so far in repairs. If your total constitutes 50% or more of the cost of a new system, you should consider investing in new equipment.

At Action Tech, we pride ourselves in preparing competitive cost analysis that agrees with your budget while maintaining the highest efficiency and quality. Often times, some replacement systems can cost less than the cost of repeated repairs, in many cases installing a new heating and cooling can actually pay for itself in energy savings with a relatively short time.

Another consideration to make when replacing a heater or air conditioner is whether it is best to replace both units at the same time. By doing so, you will save on installation costs and both units can be serviced on the same maintenance serviced plan reducing costs over the life span of the units.

Q. What should I look for when choosing a new heater, heat pump, or air conditioner unit?

A. Choose a manufacturer that has a good reputation for quality & durability. Our Action Tech technicians can assist you in choosing a model with a high efficiency rating to bring you a better comfort while lowering your seasonal energy bill.

Q. When should I replace my existing heating or air conditioning system?

A. All systems are different. Listed below are some rough estimates of life span guidelines to help you decide whether repairing or replacing is the right decision:

  • Average lifetime of an air conditioning system is 12-15 yrs
  • Average lifetime of a furnace/heating system is 12-15 yrs
  • Average lifetime of a boiler 12-15 yrs

Keep in mind, system life span widely varies based on regular maintenance and replacement of parts. If a unit has been repaired repeatedly or has been run excessively, it may require replacement sooner than normal. Continually paying for service calls or repairs to an old or inefficient system often simply prolongs the inevitable.

Q. With so many variations, how do I choose the right heating or air conditioning system?

A. Choose the correct equipment appropriate for the size and needs of your home.

  • Do not purchase a unit simply because it’s on sale and seems like a great deal at the time. Conduct your research on the product and/or ask the installation representative for more product information.
  • Finally, choose a reliable company with an excellent customer satisfaction and track record of services after the sale. Talk to your friends and neighbors.
