No one wants to be without heat in the middle of a Green Bay winter or air conditioning during a humid summer. While these are the most urgent repairs for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, regular maintenance can also keep your HVAC system working efficiently. Our partners at ConsumerAffairs researched the best HVAC repair in Green Bay to keep you comfortable year-round no matter the temperature.
HVAC systems are critical to your home, protecting you from the warm, humid summers and frigid, snowy winters in Green Bay. When your air conditioner or furnace goes out, you want to ensure the person working on it is qualified.
HVAC repair companies do more than fix broken equipment—they also offer many routine maintenance services. Furnaces and air conditioning units need to be cleaned in order to work efficiently. Even with Wisconsin’s typically good air quality, filters get dirty and need to be replaced to keep functioning properly.
Among other things, air filters help catch:
Pet hair and dander
Dust and dirt
Checking and replacing air filters and performing other regular maintenance tasks can improve machine efficiency, lower your energy bill and increase the life of your furnace and air conditioning unit by several years. Regular HVAC maintenance can also lower your repair bills by catching small issues before they turn into bigger problems and reducing the likelihood of needing expensive emergency services.
While maintaining existing HVAC systems does not require any permits, you need to file for a permit with the City of Green Bay if you are installing a new system. If your current equipment is more than 10 years old, it could be worth replacing. Energy efficiency has come a long way, and local energy companies provide incentives to upgrade to a more efficient unit.
Many companies in Green Bay provide free estimates, but some might charge a service fee for each appointment. Other charges can depend on the service provided but will increase if it’s an emergency repair that requires an evening, weekend or holiday visit. If parts are required for the repair, expect to pay for those as well.
Customers in Green Bay can usually get their air conditioning unit and furnace checked for less than $200. Most companies will offer benefits for being enrolled in an annual maintenance plan.
