When is replacement better than repair?

If repairs are becoming increasingly frequent and costly, replacement is generally the better option. This applies to faucets, fixtures, water heaters, and garbage disposals. We’ll give you an honest opinion so you can decide for yourself what’s best for your needs.

What Is the Cost of Central AC Installation?

The cost range for central AC installation runs from $5,000 to $12,000. The size of the unit plays a big role in the cost, as well as if the unit is replacing another central AC system of similar size. If you’re installing a central AC for the first time in your home, the parts and labor costs will be higher.

How do I make sure a new heating installation will meet my comfort needs in the winter?

Correct sizing is what largely determines efficiency. Trust 1 Services will gladly go over your options to help you choose based on factors such as comfort preferences, home size, and budget.

How Long Does Installation Take?

The job of installing a central air conditioning system depends on the home. Are you installing a brand new system or replacing one that’s similar in size to your current unit? If your home has never had central AC, the project could take a few days, as the installers will need to run ductwork through your entire home. If you are replacing a similar unit, the project could take just one day.

How often should I schedule an inspection?

For most homeowners, an annual plumbing inspection is sufficient. Even if nothing significant is found, you’ll have a better idea of the overall condition of your plumbing system and its main parts.

How can I get more useful life out of my heating system?

Whether you’re keeping what you have or contacting us about a replacement, regular maintenance is what maintains optimal efficiency. We recommend changing your filter every 3 months and having your heating system inspected at least annually before winter arrives.

What’s considered a plumbing emergency?

Leaks, backups, overflows, a lack of hot water, and frozen pipes are among the many urgent issues that should be reason enough to call us for emergency service. When in doubt, give us a call.

What’s the average lifespan of a furnace or boiler?
