Take a look at a few of the questions below, and reach out to us for more information.
1. Why do I need to invest in routine maintenance for my HVAC system?
There are several reasons why you need to make sure you stay on top of routine maintenance when it comes to your HVAC system. First, you want to keep your utility bills as low as possible, and if you invest in routine maintenance, your HVAC system will be more efficient, which means your utility bills will be lower. Second, you should also invest in routine maintenance because it could extend the life of your HVAC system, meaning that you could get extra years of life out of your system before you have to replace it.
2. How often do I need to replace the air filters in my HVAC system?
The answer is that it depends on the type of HVAC system you have and on the type of filters that you use. If you have relatively inexpensive, disposable filters, then you should try to change them once every 30 days. If you reach for filters that are of higher quality, then you may be able to go up to 90 days before you replace the filters. If you have questions about the specific type of filters you have, reach out to us to speak to our team.
3. Is a bigger HVAC system always better for my home?
That is not necessarily the case. You need to purchase an HVAC unit that is the right size for your home. Of course, if you purchase a system that is too small, you will have a difficult time keeping your home at the right temperature. On the other hand, you do not want to purchase a system that is too big for your home because it will be less efficient. If the system is too large, you will also have a difficult time controlling the humidity because the system will short cycle.
4. What is the best way for me to save money on my HVAC system?
The best way for you to save money on your HVAC system is to take care of it. The biggest expense related to the HVAC system is the initial purchase. That means that if you can get extra years of life out of your HVAC system, you could save hundreds or even thousands of dollars over the life of the system itself.
5. How many years of use should I expect to get out of my HVAC system?
In general, you should expect your HVAC system to last approximately 15 years. The newer your system is, the longer your system will last, as technology has improved significantly during the past few years; however, you may be able to get some extra years of use out of your HVAC system if you invest in routine maintenance.
6. How often do I need to call a technician to service my HVAC system?
You need to call a mechanic to service your HVAC system at least once per year. If you believe it is time for your next HVAC visit, contact us today to schedule an appointment.
