So you scheduled a routine maintenance appointment for your HVAC system…what now? MTB Mechanical wants you to feel informed and prepared, so we’ve outlined a few of the questions you may want to consider asking one of our highly-trained technicians during your appointment.Does my AC unit need to be replaced?
This is a very common question. Generally, HVAC systems last anywhere from about 10-12 years, but that number varies widely with use and proper care. There are a lot of good reasons to replace your AC system before it gives out; new units use up to 50% less energy to cool your home than those built in the 1990s which could actually save you hundreds of dollars in energy costs each year! Ask your technician the state of your AC unit and what your options are for replacement.
What can I do to make my AC function better?
Great question. Charlotte summers are hot, hot, hot, and there’s always something you could be doing to lessen the burden on your AC. Changing your filters monthly rather than seasonally is a great first-start, but other solutions like an energy audit, additional insulation, or an AC tune-up can help.
Is there anything I can do about my allergies?
Here in the Southeast, allergies can be a real problem. From pet dander to pollen, there’s no shortage of allergens waiting to make you sneeze and scratch. MTB Mechanical regularly installs air purification systems in Charlotte homes designed to kill mold, bacteria, and generally rid the air of pollutants.
How can I afford a new system?
We understand that the cost of a new air conditioner isn’t necessarily something anyone plans for. We offer a wide array of financing options through reputable lenders, and we’re always running specials on seasonal repairs and even rebates on entirely new systems. Ask us for the best deals you might be able to take advantage of.
