Heating and Air Questions
How do you know if your AC needs to be replaced?
Most AC systems last 10-12 years when regular maintenance is performed. If your AC system is over 10 years old or the comfort of your home has decreased we recommend calling a licensed technician for a free system replacement estimate. Sam Hewitt Services is your local choice for HVAC installation and your comfort is our #1 concern.
Does HVAC need yearly maintenance?
The simple answer to this question is yes. At Sam Hewitt Services we recommend semi-annual HVAC maintenance to ensure your comfort in all seasons. Having one of our licensed technicians perform maintenance on your air conditioning system will help ensure its life as well as increase your comfort. A planned maintenance agreement from Sam Hewitt Services can help you save money on your semi-annual maintenance as well as offer you other discounts on HVAC services.
What is considered an AC emergency?
AC emergencies range from water leaking from your system to complete electrical failure. Any time your AC system stops cooling it should be considered an emergency, especially if you have young children or elderly adults living in your home. If your AC system is not operating as it should we recommend calling a licensed HVAC professional to review the issue as well as repair it.
