HVAC systems can seem mysterious. You may have questions about how yours works — or more importantly, how to make sure it keeps working. These are some of the most common questions we get. If you don’t find your question here, contact us to get answers from a Jacobs expert.
Most systems have a life expectancy of 10-20 years, but you can help your system run for as long as possible by scheduling regular maintenance. If you start noticing your energy bills rising or you need constant repairs, it’s time to call an expert for an evaluation — especially if your system is more than 10 years old.
Our installation process is unique. We assess your space’s specific heating and cooling needs and then custom-fit your system to match. Our consultant examines your insulation, ceiling heights, sun exposure, window locations, and electrical panels. They also ask you about potential allergy concerns and the number of people and pets in your home. Before installation day we send a supervisor to double-check our plan for your system. This extra step is unique to Jacobs and helps ensure a seamless, stress-free installation every time. When our installer arrives we have everything we need to get the job done right.
