FAQs

Q: What does HVAC stand for?
A: HVAC is an acronym that stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Q: What kind of routine maintenance do I have to do on my heating and air conditioning system?
A: The key to HVAC routine service is proper circulation. This suggests that everything that impedes airflow should be instantly remedied. Things like dust, debris, or dirt should be cleared away. Your air filters should normally be clean for proper circulation. An annual tune-up on your AC should be arranged in the spring season and a yearly tune-up on your heating system should be planned in the autumn.
Q: Should a loud noise coming out of my AC and heater be something that worries me?
A: A noisy cooling and heating unit can be annoying to you and your next-door neighbors. Even if your system seems to be operating decently, no one wants to know when your system is kicking on or off. This is commonly the case when your unit is in close vicinity to a bedroom window. Also, sound pollution is a real issue and a loud HVAC system definitely adds to it. The reason that your system is so noisy is commonly because of the following:

  • Your unit is older
  • The type of unit you have
  • Your compressor-insulted or not

Fortunately, new systems have sound ratings that you can compare. Most present day units are manufactured to be quieter than their earlier counterparts. Sound ratings will direct you as to which model might work better for you. A quieter model will be more suitable if there is a bedroom close by.
Q: I have become aware of the real dangers of carbon monoxide gas. Is this something I really should be concerned about?
A: When you have a carbon monoxide gas leak at home, it is a dangerous predicament. It can produce serious health risks, including casualties. CO is not something that you can observe or detect. Don’t forget to get a CO detector in your home. Additionally, you can reduce the chances of a risky problem like this by having an HVAC company perform adequate maintenance and care on your unit.
Q: How does my HVAC system push air through my home?
A: An HVAC system uses a fan to pull air in. The air that is pulled in is then pushed to your air handler. Once it has heated up or cooled down the air, then it pushes it back through your ducts and through your vents. Vents or registers are traditionally positioned on your walls, ceilings, or floors.
Q: I have bought a new furnace and air conditioning system. For how long should I presume it to last?
A: Commonly, a new furnace or air conditioning system should last around 10-20 years when it is adequately taken care of. However, some homeowners decide to remove and replace them faster than that considering that as a system grows older, it is less efficient. Life spans of HVAC systems are different. Proper installation and maintenance are the leading factors that have an effect on the life expectancy of an unit. By carefully caring for it, you will guarantee that your system runs more efficiently. Be sure to hire a Glenwood HVAC company, like SOS XTREME Comfort®, to service your heating and cooling system.
Q: How can I make my heating and cooling system work a bit more efficiently without needing to upgrade it?
A: Even though you don’t want to change out your model, there are a number of things that you can possibly do to your existing HVAC system that will help it run more effectively. A couple of them are listed below:

  • Don’t forget to plan a tune-up in the springtime and in the fall. Studies show that people who do this save roughly 5%-10% on their utility charges.
  • Change out your filthy air filters. A dirty air filter dramatically affects the quantity of electrical power that your system requires to function. A dirty air filter will make your system operate harder which costs you even more. You should get high quality energy efficient filters. They keep your system cleaner while enhancing energy efficiency and improving indoor air quality.
  • Don’t shut or close your air vents. The key to a more energy efficient system is proper air flow. Your unit will need to breathe in order for it to carry out its job.
  • Keep your outside unit clear and clutter-free. Clear away anything that might prevent air circulation around your system.

Q: I need to invest in a new heating/cooling system. How do I purchase the appropriate one for me?
A: Most importantly, you want to think about the size of the unit. Don’t be tempted to buy an over-sized unit, thinking that it will heat up or cool down your house a lot faster than a smaller one. Some house owners expect that a smaller unit will decrease their home heating and cooling expenses. A unit that is too little will not save money on your power bill. Some individuals have the mistaken belief that size is a choice. In fact, it is not. The size of your unit has to match the size of your ductwork. Otherwise, your home will not feel comfortable and your electric charges will skyrocket. A Glenwood, New Jersey HVAC company will be able to help you figure out what size your home needs in order to do its job effectively. A successfully sized unit will keep your home comfortable and in an energy efficient manner. Be sure to ask your HVAC service provider about operating expenses for the brand-new system that you are interested in. Make sure to go for one that pays itself off. New systems are so energy efficient that you will certainly see a difference on your electrical power statements and that is how you get a return from your financial investment.
Q: I comprehend that I need to have my furnace inspected in the fall and my air conditioning system examined in the spring. Why can’t I have both of these examined at the exact same time?
A: The entire aim of having your system examined is to make sure that it is performing correctly. This implies it is capable of keeping your home comfortable while being energy efficient. By tuning up your system both in the fall and in the spring, a Glenwood HVAC contractor will be able to analyze them right before they are going to be put to use the most. It will give them more of a proper result of how your system is doing during that time of season.
Q: The temperature inside of my home is fine but my unit’s fan seems to be running all of the time. What should I do?
A: More than likely, your thermostat is set to the ‘on’ position. It is advisable to have it on the ‘auto’ setting. This setting will save electricity. The other setting, or the ‘on’ setting, does create a pleasant balanced temperature throughout your house but it uses a lot of power to perform this. It carries this out by making your fan blow constantly which translates into higher power charges. The ‘auto’ setting should be sufficient just to keep your home comfortable.
