Frequently asked questions
How can I be sure my Unit is the right size?
An air conditioner that’s too small won’t keep your home sufficiently cool. However, an oversized system will cycle (turn on and off) more than necessary, wasting expensive energy and possibly putting undue strain on the compressor.
Our service professional will determine the optimum size for your home by making a careful study of your cooling requirements and will specify the cooling capacity of the system in either Btu/h (British thermal units of heat removed per hour) or refrigeration tons (one ton being equal to 12,000 Btu/h).
Why should I perform preventative maintenance?
HVAC maintenance is not just for when problems occur.
HVAC preventative maintenance should be performed so homeowners do not have to worry about a unit breaking down at an inopportune time. Preventative maintenance will not only give homeowners peace of mind but will also keep a home comfortable all year long.
Does My Heating and Cooling Unit Need Repair?
You don’t have to wait until your HVAC unit doesn’t kick on to know that it needs a repair. In fact, there are several signs to watch and listen for to know whether or not your Heating and Air system requires repair.
Some of these signs and symptoms include:
Your system is making strange sounds
Your home is not Heating or cooling effectively
Your system is running non-stop
Your energy bills have significantly increased
What can I do to lower the cost of my monthly utility bill?
There are many things you can do to help your furnace or heat pump perform better. First, make sure that you change the filter in your heating and cooling unit on a regular basis. Some homeowners do this on a monthly basis. Also, make sure to have your heat pump, furnace, or air conditioner serviced on a regular basis. The addition of a programmable thermostat will not only allow you to determine your comfort level, but is also a big contributor to taking control of your heating costs.
