What Does HVAC Mean?

HVAC stands for "heating, ventilation, and air conditioning" and is a technology that works to create indoor comfort. The ultimate goal of this technology is to offer thermal comfort and indoor air quality that is acceptable and comfortable. For whatever the space the air is used for. HVAC units are an important aspect for both residential and commercial structures. Among some of the more prominent users includes homes, apartment buildings, senior living facilities and hotels.

HVAC units are typically centralized, which makes them a great option for climates that have very hot summers or very cold winters. Connecticut is an area that falls under both categories, which means many people in the state utilize the wonders of an HVAC unit.

Why HVAC Repair is Important

Getting professional HVAC repair for your unit is important for a few key reasons. Here are some of the more notable reasons why professional HVAC repair is important.

  1. HVAC repair improves the air quality in your home, since the unit, when working properly, removes pollutants and allergens.
  2. A working unit reduces the energy bills and costs by keeping the HVAC unit running optimally.
  3. Prevents costly breakdowns and repairs by detecting and fixing issues early before they become larger problems.
  4. Effective HVAC repair extends the life of the system.

Emergency HVAC Repair

Oftentimes, your HVAC system can operate when it needs repair. However, a complete system breakdown on one of the hottest or coldest days of the year will requires emergency repair for the HVAC system. You do not want to be stuck with a broken HVAC unit when it is very hot or very cold.

When an HVAC system suddenly stops working, it compromises the safety and comfort of your family and residents. Some of the more common examples of HVAC emergencies include the following:

  • gas leaks
  • electrical issues that pose fire hazards
  • refrigerator leaks
  • a complete system breakdown during extreme weather conditions

When to Repair Your HVAC System

Here are some of the common signs that indicate you should repair the HVAC system.

The Age

The age of the of the HVAC unit plays a crucial role when you are deciding whether to repair the system. In general, HVAC systems last about 15-20 years. A newer, more energy-efficient system is enticing if you are looking to improve the efficiency of the unit and reduce overall energy costs. However, if the system is under 10 years old, repairing the system is the best option over a replacement.


If the warranty is active on the HVAC unit, then a repair of the unit is the best option. The warranty of the HVAC unit will cover the cost of the repair, which allows you to put off the extra expense of buying a new system for a couple of more years.

Overall System Performance

If you have not noticed a decrease in the efficiency of the unit, then a repair is the way to go over replacement.

A History of Repairs

If this is the HVAC system's first or second repair in the past three years, then it likely has a few years of life left in it and there is no need to replace the unit.

Efficiency of the Unit

Newer HVAC units and systems are more efficient than their older predecessors. There are a few aspects to note to make sure the unit is still efficient enough for repairs, which includes the following:

  • air conditioner: over 10 SEER
  • furnaces: over 80% AFUE
  • heat pumps: over 10 SEER or 8 HSPF

Are You Moving?

If you plan on moving in the next few years, then it is wise to avoid the more costly replacement and simply go with a repair. However, if the unit is older, it may improve the sale of the home if you have a new unit. But either way, if you are moving there are factors to consider.
