Appliance Repair & Service FAQs
Is appliance repair service worth it?
When comparing the cost of appliance repair to full replacement, it’s important to consider the quality of the replacement product you’re able to afford versus the quality of your existing unit. While a replacement might appear more cost-effective, that new appliance might not be able to satisfy your long-term performance expectations. By contrast, repairing your existing appliance may be the better option — especially if it happens to be one made by a reputable manufacturer. Our team can help evaluate your system to help you determine the best steps to take to ensure your home appliances are in the best working condition possible. Contact us to find out if appliance repair services are right for your needs!
Should I repair or replace my existing appliance?
The price you paid for your appliance 10 years ago won’t earn you the same quality appliance in today’s market. Replacing the unit with one that’s similar in price to what you paid way back when will only cause you more headaches as the poorer quality system will require more frequent repairs. You may even end up in a vicious cycle of appliance replacement once every three to four years — yikes! Our appliance repair team has more than 90 years of experience providing the long-lasting system solutions needed to keep your devices operating smoothly.

Heating & Air Conditioning FAQs
How long do furnaces and air conditioners usually last?
The average furnace is designed to last between 15 and 30 years while modern air conditioning systems should last between 10 and 15 years. Keep in mind, your system life span is only as good as the continued care it receives. Systems that do not undergo routine maintenance will fail sooner than their well-maintained counterparts.
Should I repair or replace my HVAC system?
Most HVAC system malfunctions can be resolved through expert repair services. However, there are some scenarios in which a full replacement might be the better option. Particularly, if your HVAC equipment is older than its indicated manufacturer life span, it’s probably better to replace the system rather than continuing to repair a unit that has reached the end of its life cycle.
How often does HVAC equipment require service?
Our heating and cooling specialists recommend scheduling annual HVAC maintenance for your furnace or air conditioner at the beginning of each heating and cooling season. Not only does this ensure your manufacturer warranty remains active, but it also allows you to enjoy a long system life span, improved performance, and increased energy efficiency.
