  • How long will my HVAC system last?

    The life of a heating or cooling system can vary greatly depending on its use and how often it is maintained. However, a furnace or A/C unit will typically last between 10 and 15 years. Older systems generally require more costly repairs, especially if they have not been maintained, and it may be time for an upgrade. A new system can be more efficient, quieter, and can save you money on your utility bills long into the future.

  • What issues can affect my heating or cooling unit?

    Maintenance is a key factor in prolonging the life of your unit. When a system is left to run without being thoroughly cleaned or checked, it can require expensive repairs or break down entirely. Our team will be on the lookout for dirty coils, debris, and tune up issues that can be easily addressed in order to save you money.

  • How often should my HVAC unit be checked?

    The Manchester technicians at Proactive Comfort recommend that your system be fully inspected twice a year. This usually occurs in the spring and in the fall before the heat of summer and cold of winter when your unit works overtime. During a routine inspection, the unit will be cleaned, faulty parts replaced, and issues resolved before they can turn into a costly nightmare.

  • What can I do to protect against leaks?

    A leak from your air conditioner is usually prevented by routine maintenance checks. During a service with our team, our Manchester heating and cooling team makes sure drains are clear, the unit’s condensate pan is clean, and the condensate drain system is free of issues.

    In your plumbing system, we will check your drains to keep them clear, fix and valves in your faucets, fully inspect your water heater, and more! This means that you are not wasting water and money on leaks in the future.

  • I’m noticing a foul odor, what can it be?

    Often, sewage smells come from your septic tank or sewer pipe, but can often come from a backed up toilet or drain. While these issues are generally very noticeable, preventing the problem from happening in the first place is always your best bet. After all, sewage backing up in your shower or your yard is never pleasant. If this has happened, call the team at Proactive Comfort now to schedule a service.
