How Long Will a New Commercial AC System Last?

Your new commercial cooling system will always benefit from proper care and routine tune-ups and maintenance. Typically, you can expect new equipment to operate normally for at least 10 years, and over 15 years for well-maintained units.

Our air conditioner installations are completed with the utmost attention to detail and designed to maximize each model’s lifespan. We’ll evaluate your commercial or industrial space and help you decide on the best cooling equipment.

How Do I Know My Water Heater Needs Repair?

Sometimes it’s obvious when your hot water tank needs a repair: there’s no hot water! But not all water heater malfunctions are so easy to spot. Small problems could be reducing your hot water supply slowly, which will eventually become a bigger issue.

The following signs mean it’s time to call a professional:

  • Your hot water tank is making strange or loud noises.
  • Leaks or moisture are coming from your tank-style water heater.
  • Your water heater pilot light constantly goes off.
  • Your hot water temperature is inconsistent.
  • Your hot water supply is discolored.

Do Heat Pumps Work in Cold Climates?

Heat pumps are the most eco-friendly and energy-efficient way to heat your home. For most climates, it’s lighter on your energy bill to heat with a pump as opposed to a furnace or boiler. But in extreme cold, a heat pump may struggle to keep up.

Many heat pumps are rated to a minimum temperature of 18 degrees. Luckily, the winters in the Central Valley are mild enough that a heat pump can operate effectively. So most residents in California can be assured that a heat pump will keep them warm and cozy all winter long!

What Rebates Are There for Heat Pumps?

Both local and state governments and manufacturers are making a push toward cleaner energy. This means there are incentives to upgrade your heating system to a heat pump.

The exact rebates that you qualify for depend on your address and other factors regarding your home and its heating. But our HVAC experts at Cencal will make sure to inform you of ANY rebate programs available for Californians.

Can a Heat Pump Cool My Home?

Yes! Contrary to the name, heat pumps can cool air, too. Rather than actually heating or cooling air, heat pumps use compressed refrigerant to redistribute heat either inside or outside your home.

All heat pumps can also act as air conditioners. When heating, a heat pump takes outside warmth and disperses it in your home. When cooling, heat is transferred from your home to the outdoors. That’s what air conditioning does!

So when you upgrade to a heat pump, you’re installing an all-inclusive heating and cooling system for your home.

How Does a Heat Pump Work?

Unlike traditional heating methods like a furnace or boiler, heat pumps use electricity to keep your home warm. Instead of heating air, heat pumps take heat from outside your home and transfer it to your living space.

Heat pumps consist of 2 units. An outdoor condenser unit and an indoor fan coil unit that disperses this air around your home. Coolant is circulated between these 2 units as the heat is transferred into your home.

Heat pumps do not operate using natural gas or by burning any other fossil fuel. The pump is powered by electricity. Heat pumps can be installed for central air or as a mini-split system.

Should I Repair or Replace My Company’s Air Conditioner?

Deciding to replace a commercial cooling system is a big decision. Consider these questions if you’re debating whether to repair or replace an AC system in your commercial space:

  • How old is your air conditioner? Cooling equipment over 10 years old should be considered for replacement.
  • What is the cost of repairs? Repairs over ⅓ the price of new AC equipment may not be worth it.
  • How often is your commercial AC system needing repair or service?
  • How efficient is your current cooling system? A new AC system may improve your cooling efficiency and cut down energy costs.

Cencal Mechanical is dedicated to helping businesses make the best decisions on keeping their spaces cool and comfortable. We’ll discuss all the AC options and help you save money in the long run.

How Long Does a Commercial AC Installation Take?

The size of your commercial space, your cooling demands, and the equipment you select will all have an impact on the duration of your install. Ease of access to utility rooms, rooftops, and other installation areas will help us get the job done quickly.

Cencal Mechanical diagnostic experts do their absolute best to give you an accurate quote on expected installation timing. But we’ll always communicate expectations during our first visit to your business. And our industrial and commercial AC pricing is upfront, always.

How Often Should We Service Our Commercial AC?

Annual maintenance on your commercial air conditioner has 2 major benefits for your business:

  • AC service keeps your commercial or industrial space reliably cool and comfortable when you need it.
  • Saves your business money by reducing AC repairs and making your system last longer.

We’re the contractors you can trust for servicing and maintaining your commercial air conditioning each year. We’ll identify potential problems and take care of them before a small AC issue becomes a major pain.

How Long Does a Tank Water Heater Last?

Tank-style water heaters are one of the most economic solutions for delivering warm water to your taps. A properly installed hot water tank should last 10 years or more with the right care and maintenance.

Hot water tanks wear down over the years as minerals and sediments in the water supply slowly erode the tank. A water filtration system can help extend the life of your new tank-style water heater.
