This is dependent on the type of filter used, it's efficiency and the quality of the air in the home. Some filters can be used for over a year before requiring replacement but others should be changed quarterly. We are always happy to provide you with information on how to determine the change interval that's right for your furnace and for your indoor air quality so don't hesitate to ask us about what makes sense for your system's needs.
This is a function of the specific model and brand of the equipment. Some units are more prone to failure and require more frequent maintenance but some do not. Annual maintenance is what most contractors and manufacturers recommend but it isn't always necessary. Maintenance intervals should be prescribed based on a specific appliance, it's history and it's known reliability issues.
These types of service agreements also known as maintenance contracts, do offer the customer value with some peace of mind, but it should be taken with a grain of salt. Once a customer has been paying a contractor over a period of time it reduces their likely-hood to reach out to another when a failure has occurred or replacement is needed. The issue with this is that most customers tend to buy from that specific contractor rather than comparing quotes from others. What can result is overpaying for a replacement appliance during a time of need or even possibly getting unreliable information regarding the urgency of that replacement. Competition from other contractors works in the customer's favor to ensure fair and honest pricing and maximize the quality of the installation. As the saying goes "You don't know what you don't know" so without hearing someone else's opinion it's difficult to guarantee that what you're getting is a quality installation at a fair price. We typically don't offer these types of agreements unless it is specifically asked for to remain fully transparent with our customers.
The easiest way to reduce cooling cost in the summer months is to use shades or drapes to cover your windows. This reduces solar gain and can drop the home's cooling needs by up to 30%!
No it is not. Air conditioners that are leaking refrigerant and require a 'top-off' on a yearly or seasonal basis typically just need a new evaporator coil installed. All refrigerants that have been used in the last 60 years are either still available or have environmentally friendly replacements also available. The evaporator coil is a common part to fail and typically does so due to corrosion from small amounts of airborne chemicals in the home. We offer an overhaul service that specifically addresses this problem to rejuvenate your older AC and restore it to 'Like-New' performance while eliminating the need to replace the entire system. This service includes a 2 Year No-Fault-Warranty to give our customers peace of mind should another minor or major failure occur after these repairs are made. Should anything else fail on your old AC within a time period of 2 years from the date of this service we will repair it for Free.*

It can be, but we recommend getting at least 1 additional opinion from another reputable contractor to verify this diagnosis. Furnace heat exchangers almost always fail for a reason with most failures occurring due to poor installation or restricted airflow. A complete evaluation of the existing ductwork, air filtration and AC evaporator coil(if applicable) should be performed to ensure the new appliance doesn't suffer the same fate as the old one. Carbon monoxide poisoning is a serious risk with these types of failures but having good information is also very important. Do not use a furnace with suspected heat exchanger failure until it can be surely determined that it is still safe to operate. We are happy to do provide a second opinion on a failed heat exchanger diagnosis from another licensed contractor for Free.
