Flexible Duct Piping has been commonly used for over 30 years in residential and commercial HVAC applications and in ductwork setups. However, just like most man made things – they wear out and break down and are no longer doing what they were originally designed to do!
If you see duct work piping in your home or business, that looks like the attached pictures. You are wasting money in heating or cooling the space the duct work is set-up in.
When you have your Heating and Cooling System serviced and or replaced, make a point to ask your HVAC Contractor what the condition of your duct work is and to provide pictures. You maybe surprised at the condition, especially if its over 20 years old!
Call 405-618-2247 and allow us to give you an evaluation of your Duct Work System. We will give you information, feedback and suggestions for resolution of your comfort concerns and energy efficiency. Or go to airokc.com for additional information.
The attached pictures are of Trane equipment. The outdoor A/C unit was in installed in 1984 and has been in service for 31 years. The thermostat was installed 1977 and has been in service for over 38 years. Is this typical?
How long can I expect my A/C – HVAC Equipment to last? That is a very good question and can be challenging to answer.
But, here are some averages:
Condensing Unit – Outdoor A/C Unit = 15 years. (How much it is used and the environment it is in makes all the difference!)
Heat Pump – A/C Outdoor Unit = 12 years. (Double duty for heating and cooling your home.)
Thermostat = 5 years. (Who uses it? Home Owners, Children, Employees, the general public? They all make the difference!)
Gas Furnace = 18 years. ( Once again is determined by usage, environment and how it’s configured with the overall heating needs of the structure it is heating.)
Air Handler w/Electric Heat = 10 years for the electric heat strips and 18 years for the air handler it’s self. (How and where is it used, environment, set-up with heat pump or whether it is used with regular a/c unit all determine its life span.)
Manufactures typically give a life span of 12 to 15 years to most HVAC Equipment. The key to system longevity is regular maintenance by experienced HVAC professionals like A.I.R. llc. With proper care, your air conditioning system can last from 15 to 20 years; a gas furnace can run for up to 25 years.
