What does HVAC mean?
HVAC is an abbreviation that stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. An HVAC specialist’s job involves the installation, repair and maintenance of a commercial or residential HVAC system such as an air conditioner, heater or refrigerator.
How long does the average furnace last?
With the proper installation, maintenance, and care, a home furnace can last approximately up to 20 years. Similarly as with an air conditioner, a furnace can be made to last longer with regular inspections and extra care.
Factors to consider in choosing the right HVAC system:
- Your budget
- Your climate
- How many rooms you need heated or cooled
- If you enjoy using an air conditioner versus a fan
- If you have space for air ducts
- If you have allergies or sensitivities to dust
