Q: What does HVAC stand for?
A: HVAC means heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Q: What type of care do I want to do on my heating and air conditioning unit?
A: The best means to always keep your equipment working properly is by making sure that it has proper air circulation. When you have dirty air filters, obstructed registers or air vents, or debris around your outside unit, then you are not effectively maintaining your system. Be sure that, as a homeowner , that you are very aware of this and keep your system clean. Make sure to schedule a tune-up in the preseason. One should be arranged in the springtime for your cooling system and another ought to be scheduled in the autumn for your heating system.
Q: I have heard of the dangers of carbon monoxide. Is this something I might be concerned about?
A: When you have a carbon monoxide gas leak at home, it is a detrimental scenario. It can cause serious health risks, including fatalities. Carbon monoxide gas is not something that you can observe or detect. Don’t forget to get a CO sensor at home. On top of that, you can reduce the chances of a risky circumstance similar to this by having an HVAC contractor conduct proper upkeep and care on your unit.
Q: What does IAQ imply?
A: IAQ is a term that house owners should be aware of. It is a term that represents Indoor Air Quality. In the news reports and media, outdoor air pollution is a prevalent theme. However, indoor air pollution poses more of a hazard to property owners than outdoor air pollution. Indoor air pollution is determined as the level of pollution that exists within a structure including your home. Being exposed to these pollutants is more common than you might realize. Newly constructed houses are built so that there is an insufficient amount airflow or exchange between outdoor and indoor air. This is good for energy efficiency but it does pose a problem for air quality. A house owner can prevent this complication by having a system that is designed to make improvements to air quality.
Q: Should I cover up my outside unit over the winter months?
A: Your outside machine should not be covered during the winter season. Regardless of whether a blizzard is expected, your machine can handle it. These systems are designed to endure even the coldest of weather conditions. Covering it can result in some unexpected problems. If anybody were to unintentionally switch on the air conditioning system, it can damage the condenser and its parts.
Q: What should I set my thermostat to: on or auto?
A: You ought to use the ‘auto setting’. This means that air will be distributed throughout your home on an ‘as need’ basis. It is the more energy efficient setting of the two. When you set your thermostat to the ‘on’ position, it runs consistently. Although this generates a balanced temperature within your home, it also uses a lot more power. It is a good idea to use the ‘auto’ setting so that you don’t have expensive home heating and cooling fees.
Q: How can I make my HVAC system work even more efficiently without needing to exchange it?
A: The most ideal approach to try to keep your system running adequately is by just simply taking care of it. You need to AC your cooling system serviced in the spring season before you begin to use it often in the summer. Additionally, you will want to have your heating system serviced in the autumn before the cold winter months comes. Studies prove that property owners who do not maintain their system two times a year, have less efficient systems by almost 5% -10%. Also, as a property owner , you have to replace your filters as frequently as needed. Make sure to work with filters that have high efficiency ratings for you to keep your system clean. Your system must breathe so do not shut your register or vents. Keep debris away from your outdoor unit. You need to allow for proper circulation.
Q: I just invested in a new heating and cooling unit. Should I have a programmable thermostat put in as well?
A: Property owners who have installed programmable thermostats are glad that they did. The main reason is simply because they are saving money. You can set this kind of thermostat to raise or reduce the temp at home based on your agenda. This genuinely works when you have a regular schedule. Outside of saving you money on your electrical costs, a programmable thermostat can also provide much more comfort. It can heat up your house before you get out of bed in the morning!
Q: I know that I will need to have my furnace tuned up in the fall and my AC tested in the early spring. Why can’t I have the two inspected together?
A: You use your HVAC system the most in the summer season and in the winter. For that reason, you will want to have your AC tuned up the early spring and your heater tested in the fall. A Franklin Lakes HVAC contractor will get more of a proper analysis when each system will be utilized the most. This helps prevent really expensive repairs and it makes sure that your system is operating at peak efficiency.
Q: Will a brand-new Franklin Lakes HVAC system decrease my power bills?
A: New HVAC machines are even more energy efficient than their prior counterparts were. By requirement, they must have a 13 SEER or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. This indicates that they are incredibly energy efficient. There are also units that have a much higher SEER rating than 13. The greater the rating, the more energy efficient that it is. With a 13 SEER, you can save as much as 50% on operating charges.
Q: My furnace/air conditioner functions even if it is outdated. Why should I change it?
A: There are a couple of reasons to replace your system. In your instance, when your system is over 12 years old, then it does not get the job done as efficiently. This is simply because systems lose their efficiency as they age. This equates into higher electrical bills simply because it has to work more to try to keep your home comfortable. An updated unit can absolutely make a difference on your electricity statements and your home’s comfort levels. By keeping your older unit, you are paying much more each month than you ought to be. You can save as high as 50% of your operating expenses. This means that you will get your return on your investment quickly. You might not really want to pay for a new unit but you will be glad that you did when you see that it pays itself off quickly and after that, you will have the ability to spend your money on other things outside of home cooling and heating costs.
Q: I want to landscape my property in the summer. Can I plant near my outside unit?
A: You can plant close to your unit but we suggest that you leave 18 inches around your unit clear from any plants. This allows for sufficient air airflow which your unit requires in order to operate without problems. Alternatively, your system could get too hot which causes an avoidable service phone call.
Q: Can I close off doorways and air vents to areas that aren’t ordinarily used?
A: Do not close off areas or vents. Even though it might feel like common sense, it is a waste of your money. Your unit is matched to the duct system on your property. When you shut off areas, it generates a lot of pressure and ramps up your blower, the center of your HVAC system. This will make it less efficient and increases your home energy invoices.
