Spoiler title


Q: What does HVAC signify?
A: You may have heard this phrase before. It is generally used in the niche to refer to your heating and cooling system. It literally stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Q: What type of preventative maintenance do I need to do on my heating and air conditioning unit?
A: As a house owner, taking care of your system is certainly not rocket science. There are a couple of details that you need to always remember. The main feature to bear in mind is adequate airflow. This suggests that you have to examine your air filters often and replace them out when they are dirty. It also means that you need to make sure that your air vents aren’t hindered by objects such as home furniture. As a matter of fact, don’t even close up air vents to spaces that are less regularly used. You are making your system run harder than need be, using more power to do so, and throwing away money. Lastly, don’t forget to set up an annual tune-up on your air conditioning system. This should be carried out in the early spring. Arrange an annual tune-up on your heater in the autumn season.
Q: Why do I have to change my air filter?
A: Changing your air filter is one of the essential components to a properly working HVAC system. It allows your system to have air flow. An added benefit is that it also enhances interior air quality by keeping your home free from dirt, allergens, and germs. The regularity of changing your filter varies depending on the kind of filter that you buy. Some necessitate monthly replacement whereas, others may need to be replaced more frequently. Also, the climate in which you live also makes a difference . A skilled Arden HVAC company will be able to advise you on what type of filter works best for your style of system.
Q: How do I comprehend when my AC, furnace, or HVAC system is still under warranty?
A: All these types of systems have a manufacturer’s label on it. Take a look at your unit and search for the label. Typically, warranties last about 5 years. This can be different from one brand name to another but this is generally standard. It also changes according to the service provider that installed it. A trusted Arden heating & cooling company, like SOS XTREME Comfort®, will be able to give you more related information on your equipment and let you know if the manufacturer’s warranty for your unit is still legitimate.
Q: Should a loud noise coming out of my cooling system and heating system be something that concerns me?
A: You should definitely do something about a loud sound coming out of your HVAC system. First and foremost, you do not need to be a contributor to sound pollution. Although your system may be running well, your next-door neighbors will welcome not needing to listen to your system each time it starts up. There are many factors that result in a loud system. They involve:

  • Age
  • Make of the unit
  • Whether or not the compressor is insulated

Most contemporary systems are a whole lot more quieter than their earlier comparable versions. That being said, make sure to review makes and models and analyze the sound ratings for each. You do not want to install one that is a little louder than another option specifically if it is located right next to your bedroom window.
Q: What does IAQ represent?
A: IAQ is a term that is used in the trade that represents Indoor Air Quality. Although most people have commonly heard of outdoor air pollution, indoor air pollution is a concern. This term denotes that the quantity of air pollution that exists in a home or even a building. According to the American Lung Association, being exposed to pollutants happens more often inside your home than out of the house by a significant amount. This is why it is very important to have an HVAC system that improves IAQ and really aids homeowners who deal with respiratory issues and allergies.
Q: How does my HVAC system force air throughout my home?
A: Your HVAC system basically operates by drawing air through your air vents. This air, then moves to your system’s air handler. The conditioned air is then pushed back into your home through your air vents or registers. These vents are typically found on your walls. In many cases, they are located on your ceilings or floor surfaces.
Q: Should I cover my outdoor unit over the wintertime?
A: Your exterior unit is constructed to handle the harshest of winters so it is not advisable to cover your unit. If someone were to accidentally switch on the air conditioning unit when your unit is covered, it can wreck the condenser and all of its components.
Q: What should I set my thermostat to: on or auto?
A: If you wish to make your house as energy efficient as possible, then don’t forget to set your thermostat to the ‘auto’ setting as an option. This setting makes the fan operate only when it is necessary. The ‘on’ option makes your fan work constantly. Although this is pleasant when you prefer to have air consistently filtered through your home, it uses significantly even more power. This, is turn, will spike your electric statements.
Q: I have installed a new furnace and air conditioner. How long should I expect it to last?
A: This all is based on a couple of factors. When you get a brand-new furnace or air conditioner, they are fabricated to last approximately 15-20 years. It should really be noted that most HVAC systems eventually are less energy efficient as they age. For that reason, a 12 year old machine will not be as energy efficient as a brand-new one. You can really help your current system last and run more efficiently by properly maintaining it. Good installation also contributes to the service life of an HVAC system. Make sure that it is installed correctly by choosing a reputable Arden HVAC company, like SOS XTREME Comfort®.
Q: I need to invest in a new heating/cooling system. How do I purchase the best one for me?
A: First and foremost, you need to think of the size of the unit. Don’t be drawn to buy an over-sized unit, assuming that it will heat or cool your house a lot quicker than a smaller sized one. Some homeowners think that a small unit will lower their home heating and cooling expenses. A unit that is too small will not save money on your electricity bill. Some individuals have the misconception that size is an option. In truth, it is not. The size of your machine should match the size of your ductwork. Otherwise, your home will not feel comfortable and your power bills will escalate. A Arden, New York HVAC specialist will be able to help you identify what size your home needs for it to do its job well. A properly sized unit will keep your home comfortable and in an energy efficient manner. Be sure to ask your HVAC expert about operating expenses for the brand new system that you are interested in. Make sure to choose one that pays itself off. New systems are so energy efficient that you will surely see a difference on your electrical power charges and that is how you get a return from your investment decision.
Q: My furnace/air conditioner does the job even though it is outdated. Why should I change it?
A: Regardless of whether your heating and air conditioning system is getting the job done, when it is more than 12 years old, it quits working as properly. Consequently, you are paying more on your monthly electrical bill in order for it to try to keep your house comfortable. New systems can save as much as 50% on operating charges so they pay themselves off in a very short time. It may not be an investment decision that you planned on but you will be pleased that you did. An additional feature of a new unit is that it will keep your home more comfortable.
Q: Can I shut doors and vents to areas that aren’t regularly used?
A: Do not close off areas or air vents. Although it might feel like common sense, it is a waste of your resources. Your unit is matched to the duct system in your home. When you shut off rooms and air vents, it generates a lot of pressure and ramps up your blower, the heart of your HVAC system. This causes it to be less efficient and increases your home energy expenses.
