Here is a list of common questions that our clients ask us. If you need more information don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

How Long Does a Furnace Last and When Should You Replace It?

The average life expectancy of a furnace is 15 - 20 years, however, furnace life expectancy will greatly vary depending on many variables such as quality of equipment and proper installation, climate and thermostat settings, fuel source, and maintenance. When making a decision to repair or replace your furnace a few things you should consider is cost of the repair, overall condition of the furnace, and energy efficiency. While our goal at Airbender Mechanical is to repair your furnace and keep it operating for you, you'll eventually come to a point where it doesn't make sense economically to repair the furnace or you may even want to upgrade your HVAC equipment to a more energy efficient system. Airbender Mechanical can inspect and evaluate your furnace or entire HVAC system and assist you in making an informed decision on furnace replacement. We offer free estimates for installations.

How Often Should I Clean Or Replace My Air Filters?

To achieve the best system efficiency, filtration and avoid some common heating and cooling problems, most HVAC air filters should be replaced or cleaned monthly. While there are some high performance media air filters that are designed to be replaced every 3 to 6 months, the actual replacement intervals can very depending on how often the HVAC system cycles and the indoor air quality, so it's recommended to get in the habit to at least check your air filter monthly and don't wait until the air filter is very dirty to clean or replace.
