The Heating and Cooling system is the most expensive appliance in your home. It’s also the most neglected and definitely the most expensive appliance in your house to repair. Most home owners do not properly maintain their equipment on a bi-annual basis. Heating and Cooling equipment, even if properly maintain, will fail at some point. This is because the mechanical parts are prone to fail. It’s not a matter of if your heating and cooling system is going to fail but sadly it’s a matter of when.
In my experience repairing and maintaining these systems is that they most commonly fail at the most inconvenient times like when your family is coming into town for the holidays. Also the hottest or coldest days of the seasons seems to be a good time that these heating systems decide to inconvenience you not only socially but financially as well. You should check your system twice a year spring and fall. At least once a year at the very minimum.
Exposure to the Elements
Your air conditioning system sits outside all the time. Rain, sleet, snow, sunshine and runs for a majority of the day. The rising cost of repairs and the refrigerant these systems use isn't going to get cheaper. Much like everything else it will get more and more expensive as time goes by. For example a compressor, which is the pump that circulates the refrigerant, if it fails on average the cost to replace is $1,350 - $1,800.
Refrigerant is the main source of headaches for most customers. Heating and cooling units are prone to leak refrigerant and when a system is low on refrigerant it can cause a number of problems.
Extended Hours of Use
Let's say your unit runs just one extra hour per day, for30 days. That’s 30 hours per month and 360 hours per year. How much do you think your bill would be from the power company to run your unit for 360 hours? Times that by the amount of time you lived in your home or plan to live in your home. Proper maintenance and regular checkup are vital for the proper efficiency and longevity of your system.
The average life span of many air condition systems is 8-15 years depending on where you house is located and the level of maintenance. If you live on or near the water then your unit is under harsher conditions because of the salt and sand spray which will shorten its life expectancy. Also this can lead to black mold build up in your HVAC system, your air ducts and finally your home.
