FAQs

Q: What does HVAC imply?
A: You may have heard this term before. It is often used in the field to refer to your heating and cooling system. It literally stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.

Q: What kind of maintenance do I have to do on my heating and air conditioning unit?
A: The key to HVAC routine service is ideal air movement. This indicates that anything that restrains airflow should be quickly fixed. Things like dust, debris, or dirt should be cleared away. Your air filters should always be clean for proper circulation. An annual tune-up on your A/C should be scheduled in the spring season and an annual tune-up on your heating unit should be set up in the autumn.

Q: How do I figure out when to replace my air filter?
A: We suggest that you replace your air filter on a month-to-month basis. Nevertheless, it is better to change your filters as frequently as necessary so that your system works with highest possible efficiency. Examine them more regularly if you live in a dusty environment or have pets. If your filter appears dirty, then make sure to remove and replace it immediately.

Q: What does IAQ imply?
A: IAQ is a term that is used in the niche that stands for Indoor Air Quality. Although the majority of people have commonly heard of outdoor air pollution, indoor air pollution is a concern. This term denotes that the level of air pollution that exists in a home or even a building. According to the American Lung Association, exposure to pollutants happens more often indoors than outside the house by a considerable amount. This is why it is very important to have an HVAC system that greatly improves IAQ and really aids property owners who deal with respiratory issues and allergies.

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 driven to your air handler. Once it has warmed or cooled down the air, then it pushes it back through your ductwork and out of your vents. Vents or registers are typically positioned on your walls, ceilings, or floors.

Q: What should I set my thermostat to: on or auto?
A: You should set your thermostat to the auto setting. This enables the fan to run only when it is needed. Most property owners prefer this setting because it is more energy efficient. The on setting may be used when you desire to have air continually filtered all through your property. The air is distributed and it can give a more even temperature throughout your house. However, it does use more energy to do this. Modern furnaces have fan motors that have this function.

Q: I will need to get a new heating/cooling system. How do I pick the appropriate one for me?
A: The principal element that you ought to take into consideration is size. The unit will need to be the best size for your home. Many property owners make the miscalculation of buying units that are too large, thinking that the system will heat up or cool down their home more quickly. Other homeowners buy units that are too small, thinking that their units will use a lot less power and consequently, save money. This is a big no-no. Your unit has to complement the size of your home so that it can properly heat or cool it. A Harrington, New Jersey HVAC pro, like SOS XTREME Comfort®, has the proficiency to match your unit. Also, make sure to explore operating charges of your system with your contractor. You want a system that, ultimately, pays you back. Make sure to purchase a system that, on a monthly basis, balances out the cost of the unit with the help of your power bill.

Q: I just invested in a new heating and cooling unit. Should I have a programmable thermostat put in also?
A: A programmable thermostat can work wonders on your home heating and cooling expenses. Unless you have the memory of an elephant, it turns your temperature up or down based on your set schedule. This indicates that you don’t have the chore of going out for the whole day and always remembering to adjust the thermostat. Let’s be real. In the craziness of life, many people are running out the door and simply don’t have enough time to recall things like that. Your programmable thermostat remembers for you. This saves money on heating and air conditioning charges by turning the thermostat up or down when you are away. You will not pay to heat or cool an empty house. It also keeps your home at a more comfortable temp given that you can get out of bed to a warm house in the winter and in the summer, you can return from work to a perfectly cooled house.

Q: Will a new Harrington HVAC system reduce my power bills?
A: New HVAC systems are much more energy-efficient than their prior comparable versions were. By regulation, they need to have a 13 SEER or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. This indicates that they are very energy efficient. There are even models that have a greater 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 fees.

Q: The temperature inside of my house is fine but my unit’s fan seems to be working all of the time. What should I do?
A: More than likely, your thermostat is set to the ‘on’ position. It is recommended to have it on the ‘auto’ setting. This setting will conserve electricity. The other setting, or the ‘on’ setting, does create a pleasant uniform temperature throughout your home but it takes a lot of energy to do so. It does this by making your fan blow non-stop which translates into higher electrical power statements. The ‘auto’ position should be sufficient to keep your home comfortable.

Q: Can I close off doorways and air vents to areas that aren’t commonly used?
A: There is a common opinion among house owners that if you shut doors or vents to spaces that are not regularly used, then you will reduce your utility charges. This is absolutely not true. Your unit is installed to match the ductwork on your property. When you shut an air vent or door, then the air needs to go somewhere. It generates a great deal of pressure which then your blower, or the heart of your HVAC system, will need to compensate for. It runs harder and spikes up your electric costs.
