Getting an expert opinion means you will know exactly what you’re dealing with.  It means you know whether your furnace is safe to operate and have peach of mind it is not going to leave you without heat when you need it the most.  Seasonal maintenance helps extend the life of your furnace, if done from the get-go on new equipment.

We recommend checking and changing your furnace filter as needed every other month.  That is the extent of what’s expected of you as the homeowner, beyond that duty, you should call a professional to head off any other of the following warning signs it might be time to replace your furnace.

Top 10 Warning signs:

  1. Age of your furnace
  2. Operating cost

  4. Frequent repairs
  5. Dry or dusty house
  6. Smells from the furnace
  7. Burner flame yellow instead of blue (inside the furnace)
  8. How your family feels
  9. Sound of your furnace, is it loud?

A/C Installation – When to Consider an Air Conditioning Replacement

air conditioner installation DenverMost people probably only consider replacing their dated air conditioning system when it needs repair.  This is not really the best way to go about doing so though, because it will most likely be a busy time of the hot summer months when temperatures are the hottest and all HVAC companies are busier than usual servicing the demands.  Which means you will be uncomfortable in a hot home without air conditioning awaiting your replacement air conditioning installation.  Therefore, planning and budgeting your air conditioner replacement project ahead of a catastrophic system breakdown would be very beneficial and practical for any homeowner.

With the age of your air conditioning system in the back of your head and knowing its expected lifespan, you may want to consider a proactive replacement.  This can also save you money doing your project during a cooler time of the year and when HVAC contractors are between the busy no-heat service calls and hottest summer months.  Two other factors to persuade a homeowner to replace would be overall reliability and the cost of running that older system.

When your system is no longer reliable and constantly breaking down, then it makes financial sense to replace it with a newer, more efficient and more dependable system.

Choosing Your Replacement Air Conditioner

Once you’ve come to terms with it being time to replace your air conditioner, here’s what you need to do to get the project moving along.  Look into brands and types of air conditioning systems so you know your options, so you are comfortable with your choice.  Calling TOBIN Heating and Air Conditioning at the beginning of this process will help assist you in available options and financing options to consider, as well.  Like a 36-month 0% cost option, that way you get the system you really want and not just the bare minimum you can afford to put on a credit card.  TOBIN’s team will exceed your expectations for installation in all areas of the job.  We will replace your air conditioning system with a new optimally sized and expertly installed system.  You can count on TOBIN to get your installation job done right the first time and up and running and cooling you down as quickly and efficiently as possible.
