Is your AC on the fritz in White House, Cottontown, New Deal, Johnson’s Crossroads, Ridgetop, Millersville, or somewhere else nearby? Our expert crew is here to help.

One of the first things you might want to ask yourself if your AC stops working is… How old is it?

On average, an AC unit can last between 10-15 years – however, if properly maintained, some can last up to 20. If you think your system is getting close to the end of its lifespan, it might be time to consider replacing the unit.

Now, if that’s not the case, and you’ve invested regular maintenance every year, then it might be something as simple as changing out the air filters or keeping the outside unit clean and clear of debris – easy fixes for any homeowner to complete.

If you look at all of those things and still don’t know the problem, then it’s time to schedule an appointment with a local company, like Petitt Heating and Cooling, to come to take a look and diagnose the problem. Having a professional HVAC company you can count on is important when there’s a problem you can’t figure out, and we’d love to be the team you trust for it all.

How Do I Know When My AC Is Too Old to Repair?

A big thing to consider when deciding if it’s time to upgrade is that many new technologies and improved Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements have come out in the last few years. Older units are not as efficient as the newer models, and you may be paying through the nose for energy bills and not even realize it. If your AC unit is more than 12 to 15 years old, it’s likely nearing the end of its lifespan and it may be more cost-effective in the long run to replace it.

With that said, don’t feel that you need to replace it merely because of age. Consider the frequency of breakdowns and the cost of repair parts and labor. If you find yourself constantly repairing your unit, or if the cost of repairs and labor exceeds half the cost of a new unit, it’s probably time to start researching replacement options.

Whey Are HVAC Technicians So Expensive?

Repairs are the logical solution to keep your AC chugging along. However, ongoing maintenance and repair costs can quickly add up.

In the last few years, the heating and air conditioning industry, as a whole, has really changed. This industry is much like any other in the sense that we have to keep up. It’s important for us to stay updated on the changes in technology through training, so we can serve you better – but that takes time and expense. And all that doesn’t even include the new laws that have come down around the industry.

Not every technician out there has kept up with it all either so always remember that the “cheapest” isn’t usually the best.

We want you to have the best experience with the best technician in White House. That’s why our crew is highly trained and has up-to-date experience in the latest technology for heating, air, and air quality for your home – and we do it all with the best customer experience in mind for you.

Long story short – we don’t take shortcuts when it comes to your comfort or your safety. Because of this, many find working with trained professional HVAC technicians, like us, as fairly expensive. We would argue that we really aren’t when we come out and fix the problem the first time – and not just patch the problem with a unreliable quick fix. It’s also why we have worked really hard to put in place some really great financing options for our customers.

Don’t put a strain on your bank account to stay cool this summer. We’re here to help with great financing options. We have 0% interest plans and low monthly payment options. Get with us to find out more.

You can also save money with a maintenance plan.

Another great way to leave more money in your pocket is to sign up for one of our maintenance plans. We have plans that start as low as $12 per month. The plan includes two visits per year (one in the spring and one in the fall) and you get discounts on needed parts and new systems. What’s all included?

  • 10% off any needed part
  • 5% off new systems
  • Priority emergency service
  • No overtime service charges

Not only do we make it easy to pay a low amount each month, but we also make it easy to remember and keep. You tell us how you want us to contact you and we will call, email, or text you accordingly with helpful reminders when it’s time to make your appointment.

We’ll be out in the spring and conduct a 16-point air conditioner checklist, then again in the fall for your 15-point furnace or heat pump checklist. We want to do this for you because we know that a system that is maintained will last longer and lower your energy bills. It makes getting a maintenance plan an easy decision to make.
