Installing a furnace on your own is never something we’d recommend. Not only does DIY work disqualify you from most manufacturer warranties, but it severely limits the range of furnace options you can install for your property. The best way to approach a furnace installation is to trust the professionals for the job – it will save you more money in the long run!

Despite each system having its similarities, HVAC is different from the other two types of energy systems! HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning, referring to all of the different components that keep your property comfortable. Heating systems and AC units are more specific in their functionality, only able to provide heating or cooling to a property.

The best heating systems for your property will largely depend on personal needs, such as budgetary concerns and how much surface area you need to heat. Heat pumps are more expensive upfront, but their cooling capabilities make them usable all year long. Gas furnaces aren’t as expensive but require an additional air conditioning unit as they can’t be used for cooling purposes.

As with heating systems, the best water heaters may come down to personal preference. However, there are significant benefits to using a tankless water heater. The US Department of Energy states that tankless water heaters can be up to 34% more energy-efficient than their counterparts. Upfront installation costs are more expensive, but come with an increased benefit of having a longer lifespan!

A lack of maintenance work, flushing, and excessively high temperatures can all contribute to a shortened lifespan for your water heater. A lack of appropriate water filtration can also play a role here – and even shorten the lifespan of your plumbing pipes!

Getting a whole home water filtration system installed isn’t just beneficial for your drinking water! The chemicals and contaminants in unfiltered water have been linked to corrosion within your plumbing pipes. If you regularly use unfiltered water, your plumbing system’s lifespan could be significantly shortened. Whole home water filtration systems help extend the lifespan of your pipes and prevent costly water damage issues.

When it comes to getting your AC units replaced, a common question is whether a homeowner can get away with just replacing the outdoor unit. You should replace the entire AC unit when it reaches the end of its lifespan, including both indoor and outdoor units. Replacing just one or none of them can lead to inefficiencies with the whole system, which could cost you even more money than a simple replacement.

As your plumbing pipes age, they can suffer from general wear and tear or corrosion (depending on how pure your water is). If you notice frequent leaks under sinks or stains on your walls, they are both telling signs of needing expert repiping work.

The team at Personal Plumbing Heating and Cooling is available 24/7 to assist with emergency plumbing concerns. Give us a call if you’re dealing with burst pipes, stubborn clogging, signs of serious leaks, and water heater emergencies!

It’s a good practice to get your furnace inspected and maintained at least once a year. Personal Plumbing can change out filters, inspect furnaces and ventilation systems, and even provide maintenance and repairs to central heating units!

As is the case with your heating systems, AC or HVAC units should be serviced annually. They can help you extend the lifespan of your units and even save you money on energy bills!
