HVAC FAQ

  • What is HVAC?
    HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. It refers to the systems used for maintaining indoor comfort by controlling temperature, humidity, and air quality.
  • How often should I replace my HVAC air filter?
    It's recommended to replace your HVAC air filter every 1-3 months, depending on factors like filter type, usage, and indoor air quality. Regular replacement improves system efficiency and air quality.
  • What is SEER, and why is it important?
    SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) measures the efficiency of an air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy-efficient the system. Upgrading to a higher SEER can lead to energy savings.
  • How can I improve indoor air quality?
    To enhance indoor air quality, consider regular HVAC maintenance, use high-quality air filters, keep the home clean, control humidity levels, and invest in air purifiers or filtration systems.
  • When should I schedule HVAC maintenance?
    Schedule HVAC maintenance at least twice a year, ideally in the spring and fall, to ensure peak performance. Regular maintenance prevents breakdowns, improves efficiency, and extends the system's lifespan.
  • What are the signs my HVAC system needs repairs?
    Common signs include strange noises, reduced airflow, uneven heating or cooling, frequent cycling, and increased energy bills. If you notice these, it's time to schedule professional HVAC repairs.
  • How can I make my HVAC system more energy-efficient?
    Upgrade to a programmable thermostat, seal duct leaks, ensure proper insulation, schedule regular maintenance, and consider upgrading to a higher SEER-rated system for increased efficiency.
  • Can I install an HVAC system myself?
    HVAC system installation requires professional expertise. DIY installation can lead to safety hazards, inefficiency, and warranty voidance. It's recommended to hire a licensed HVAC professional for installation.
  • What's the lifespan of an HVAC system?
    The average lifespan of an HVAC system is 15-20 years. Regular maintenance and proper usage contribute to longevity. Consider replacement if your system is older, inefficient, or experiencing frequent breakdowns.
  • How do I choose the right HVAC system for my home?
    Factors to consider include your home's size, insulation, climate, budget, and energy efficiency goals. Consulting with a professional HVAC technician can help you choose the system that best fits your needs.
