Many homeowners often wonder just how long their HVAC system is going to last before it quits on them. Although the typical answer is that heaters and coolers can last anywhere between 15 and 20 years, this depends on several factors. For example, scheduling thorough maintenance can extend your system’s lifespan by several years, whereas a lack of professional tune-ups can greatly decrease your unit’s efficiency.
If your HVAC unit keeps short cycling or has had multiple repairs within the last few months, it is likely going to need a total replacement from expert contractors.

Learning the Signs that Your HVAC System Is in Trouble
Understandably, no one enjoys having their AC or furnace break down, but when the inevitable comes, it is much better to be prepared. In fact, by looking out for the warning signs that your HVAC system is on the fritz, you may even be able to avoid a total collapse by proactively contacting heating and cooling specialists to troubleshoot the problem.
Some signals that should put you on the alert include:
- A heater that releases cold air or an air conditioner that blows hot air
- Vents that are very dirty and clogged
- The inability to feel any air blowing out at all
- Uneven heating or cooling in different parts of the house
- Growth of mold and mildew on the unit
- Leakage coming from under the system
- A thermostat reading that does not match the actual feel of the room
Professional Maintenance and Installations
It is never a good idea to have anyone less than a true professional install your HVAC equipment because they contain many delicate components that could easily become disconnected or damaged if handled improperly. You do not want your costly investment to be ruined simply because it was not installed correctly.
Similarly, maintenance is essential when it comes to keeping your system in top working order. Regular checkups will help reduce wear and tear and keep efficiency high, saving you money on your monthly utility bills and the cost of unexpected breakdowns. Whether you've noticed an issue or you would like to prevent one before it develops, our professionals will prioritize your comfort by thoroughly inspecting your HVAC system and ensuring everything is working as it should. In short, maintenance is essential for your budget and peace of mind.
The technician arrived with the diagnostic tools to determine the problem as well as the tools for repair. Obvious the tech knew what he was doing. The furnace required a new Capacitor which required the Tech to go up on the roof. The job was done in less than an hour.Mark Y.
This company came immediately this fall when my A/C shorted when the roofers moved it, and got it running again. When my heater went out before Xmas they came out the same day, diagnosed the problem, and had the part ordered. It took less than 20 minutes for them to install the part, and yay, the heater is working!Lisa H.
We had a great experience with comfort one! The technician was prompt, friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable. He addressed the issue quickly and the price was reasonable. We plan to get their maintenance package because they were so pleasant to work with! Thanks comfort one!Kim B.
This company is a real gem in the industry. They are very responsive, explain everything you need and want to know, went over the options, and got the job done! They replaced two aging heat pump a/c rooftop units and were flexible enough to work with the roofer to do what was needed to seal underneath before completion. The price was very fair and competitive, and every one of their staff was pleasant and professional. I highly recommend them!Ben S.
Our AC started blowing warm air. We called Comfort One and they came out so quickly and had it fixed in no time. Our tech was so kind, answered ALL of our questions, and explained things so well!Rebecca D.
Comfort One Air Conditioning Came out the Same-Day to Repair our AC Unit. They were prompt, we're pushy, propped up our system and gave us advice on the next steps. The honest company would highly recommend them!Tom W.
I have used Comfort One since 2018 and love them and their service! They are honest, integrity-based, and service-oriented. It is like dealing with a friend who is taking care of you. Also, 2 of my friends have used them and one even said I saved her life with them they loved them so much. I have dealt mainly with Taps and Jessica (owners) and also John. The last few visits John has come. Recently he replaced the motor on my air conditioner. He found that it was under warranty and handled everything. Thank you for being the type of company I know I can completely rely on. I appreciate you.Amy S.
This company has been top-notch. I’ve worked with Taps and Jon at my work and now use them for my home. They are wonderful to work with and prices are fair and transparent. They are very responsive and communicate well. the comfort zone is my go-to HVAC company.Matt S.
I have been looking to find a reliable HVAC company for several years now. After trying several companies, Comfort One AC is the one. Today was my first experience with them and Jonathan was a Superstar! He discovered that my AC had been overcharged with refrigerant. He took the time to explain what that meant and how it could impact my system. He, of course, but the refrigerant to the level it should be. Excellent customer service can be hard to find, but that's exactly what Jonathan provided today. If you are looking for a new AC company, go with Comfort One AC. They are the BEST!W T.
