What is the average cost of a new heating and cooling system near Waukesha?

If you're upgrading your complete HVAC system, you should budget between $5,000 and $10,000 for a replacement system. Keep in mind that, depending on the state of your present HVAC system, further repairs or upgrades may be necessary to ensure that the new system functions correctly. Extra work, such as ductwork rehabilitation, can have a substantial influence on the overall cost. Have an HVAC professional evaluate your home to get an accurate cost estimate.

What can cause a HVAC system to stop working near Waukesha?

There are a number possible causes for your central air unit to abruptly quit operating. Here are some fixes you can check on your own:

The Temperature Control - This may sound obvious, but if your central air isn't working, check the thermostat. The thermostat instructs the system, and if it is turned off, it has no effect on anything.

A Blown Fuse Or Tripped Circuit - The cause of a central air unit not working can sometimes be traced back to its power supply. Check your circuit breaker box to check there is no tripped circuit or fuse that is blown. 

The Condensate Pan Switch - The more humid the environment, the more condensate your air conditioner will generate. All of this water drains down the pipes, and the unit's water detection switch keeps the runoff from causing water damage to your home's structure. If your central air conditioner isn't operating, the water detection switch may have been engaged owing to excess moisture someplace.

If basic troubleshooting doesn’t uncover the cause, have a professional HVAC technician run a diagnostic test to determine why your system has stopped working.

Should ductwork be replaced after 20 years?

The quick and dirty answer is yes. In general, if your HVAC ductwork is more than 15 years old, it should probably be replaced. After 15 years, it begins to deteriorate, drastically lowering the effectiveness of your HVAC system, so replacement is the smart alternative. So if your ductwork is 20 years or older, you should have it replaced by an HVAC expert as soon as you’re able.

Review of Burkhardt Heating & Cooling

My elderly mother had her AC go out in 90 degree weather - Kelly (our expert technician) and Leslie (our amazing coordinator) responded and corrected our problem within hours! They were kind and helpful — Kelly actually spent a few moments to calm my mother, and then contacted us with an update. Within an hour or so, mom reported she was feeling much better and so glad for Kelly. We’re so grateful to Kelly and Leslie and encourage you to use their expertise!
