Due to the rising cost of metals and refrigerant.
Expected life expectancy is 10 to 15 years. Before recommending replacement, we take into consideration the cost to repair your system. If your system can be repaired at a reasonable cost, there is usually no need to replace.
Your home is what determines the size of a system. If you put too big of system in your home it will not cool optimally.
No, never. The outside unit needs to release heat out of a a coil by using the fan motor. Your system should have 1 foot clearance from your house and 2-3 feet of clearance from any bushes or plants.
All manufacturers warranties are standard 5 year parts and compressor unless it was registered with the manufacturer. Then it is 10 year parts and compressor.
Industry norm for labor warranty is 1 year. At Amtech Mechanical we warrant labor for 2 years and have options to extend to 10 years.
Yes and no. Allergen filters do collect smaller particles floating in the air, but they restrict air flow to the unit which may cause system to work harder and prematurely over exert the motor.
No. When duct cleaning, the brushes and vacuum often causes duct leaks throughout your system, plus they often do not clean it fully anyway.
Most people don't but it should be replaced every 15 - 25 years.
Twice a year would be optimal, but no less than once a year.
We have twice as many hot days than cold days in Georgetown and Round Rock, so your AC is running twice as much as your heat pump.
Depending on the environment of the home, it can be as frequently as once a week, but should never be over 30 days.
Filters are rated by M.E.R.V. We recommend the new equipment 7 MERV or lower.
Never. Your system is considered a sealed system. Freon is not consumable.
Freon is a refrigerant. Today we are using 2 types of refrigerant, one of which is called R-22 and will be phased out by the year 2020. The other refrigerant has many names, such as Puron or Prozone, but the true name is R-410
We use a product called Drain Care. However, you can use bleach or vinegar. Before using either, you should blow out the line.
Never turn your system off raise temp in the summer to keep a twenty degree difference between outside air and inside air. For example if we have temperature of one hundred degrees outside you should raise your thermostat to around eighty degrees during the day. During Winter months on a 50 degree day set thermostat around 65 degrees.
