Does your air conditioning unit need repair or replacement?

It is one of the most common questions asked daily. There is no “one size fits all” answer. If your air conditioner or heat pump is ten years or older, and it needs a significant repair. Then you might consider replacing the HVAC system. Significant factors when deciding to replace your AC system or heat pump are:

  • Age and warranty status of the air conditioner

What is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is an air conditioning system that can be reversed to either heat or cool your home. It functions just like an air conditioner but can also reverse the refrigeration cycle to heat air. Heat pumps are very efficient heating and cooling systems. They are common in the Richmond area. Usually, they’re matched with an electric air handler and often paired with a gas furnace. The electric heater or the gas furnace assist the heat pump in heating when it gets frigid. They are the most efficient way to heat the home in milder winter weather.

Crucial factors in the buying process are:
