Hvac Services Furnace

Your HVAC system works hard to keep you comfortable throughout the year. But nothing lasts forever, especially when it works as hard and as tirelessly as your HVAC system. So how long can you expect your furnace, air conditioner or heat pump to last? And what do you need to take into consideration when bringing a new HVAC system into your home? ABA HVAC and Home Solutions is here with answers.

The Lifespan of Your HVAC System

The length in which your heating or cooling system lasts depends on how often you use it and how well you take care of it. Assuming you keep up with regular maintenance, your HVAC system can last: 

  • 12-17 years for an air conditioner
  • 15-20 years for a furnace
  • 20-25 years for a heat pump

Once it gets on the later end of these estimates you may notice dips in performance, spikes in energy bills, or even repeated breakdowns. At this point it is cheaper to replace the system entirely, as opposed to paying for repairs over and over again.

Finding the Right HVAC Unit

There’s no shortage of HVAC options for homeowners in Washington. The best choice for your household depends on how large your home is and if there’s a heating and cooling system already in place. Here is an overview of the main types of HVAC units today: 

  • Ductless mini split air conditioners are an affordable option. One unit is installed outside your home and one indoors, and they’re connected via coolant lines.
  • Packaged systems where the furnace and A/C unit are one cabinet installed outside. This choice is good for those looking to save space or installation costs.
  • Variable-speed furnaces, which run for longer periods of time at slower speeds, increasing heating and cooling efficiency. 
  • Heat pumps that function as air conditioners and heat pumps. These are best used in climates that don’t see extreme winters. 

You don’t need to know exactly what kind of HVAC system would work best for your home. The right provider will ask all the right questions to narrow down the choice to the most appropriate options for you .

ABA HVAC and Home Solutions for New Installations

There’s a lot that goes into choosing and installing a new HVAC system. You might only be replacing one unit, or you may want to replace all your equipment at once to ensure the most energy efficiency. Any provider that promises quick service likely isn’t qualified to perform a quality job. You want a company that can balance the electrical, plumbing, and ductwork components that come into play with any HVAC installation.
