FAQs

Q: What does HVAC mean?
A: HVAC is an acronym that means heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.

Q: What type of routine maintenance do I have to do on my heating and cooling system?
A: The solution to HVAC upkeep is proper circulation. This suggests that everything that minimizes airflow should be rapidly addressed. Things like dust, debris, or dirt should be cleared away. Your air filters should typically be clean for proper circulation. A yearly tune-up on your A/C should be set up in the early spring and an annual tune-up on your furnace should be arranged in the autumn.

Q: How do I have an idea of when my AC system, furnace, or HVAC system is still under warranty?
A: All these types of systems have a manufacturer’s label on it. Look at your unit and locate the label. Usually, warranties last about 5 years. This can fluctuate from one manufacturer to another but this is mostly standard. It also fluctuates based on the company that installed it. A respectable Johnson cooling and heating company, like SOS XTREME Comfort®, will be able to give you more info on your system and let you know if the warranty for your unit is still valid.

Q: What are the reasons for indoor air pollution?
A: Factors to indoor air pollution can vary. Some might actually surprise you. Certain items in your house have materials that release fumes or gases. These include:

  • Carpeting
  • Furniture
  • Drapes or curtains
  • Upholstery
  • Cleaning products

Since newer homes are constructed so tightly, they do not breathe as well as older houses do. While this may make for an incredibly energy efficient home, it also promotes to indoor air pollution. The accumulation of gases and fumes result in indoor air pollution. This can be prevented by having an HVAC system that allows proper ventilation. With a whole house ventilation system, a property owner can experience an exceptionally energy efficient house without the concern of indoor air pollution.

Q: Should I cover my outdoor unit through the winter season?
A: Do not cover your system. These systems are fabricated to withstand the coldest of winter times. If a scenario were to arise where somebody in your home starts up the AC system when it is covered, then a lot of problems can occur. Principally, your condenser and its parts are majorly damaged.

Q: How can I make my HVAC system work a bit more efficiently without having to replace it?
A: When you don’t prefer to replace your unit, you should properly maintain it. This means that you, as the house owner, should do some preventative care on your system and arrange a tune-up every 6 months. It is a good idea to schedule one in the springtime just before the heat hits and organize one in the autumn, before the wintertime rolls in. By carrying this out, you can improve the energy efficiency of your system by approximately 5% -10%. This makes a huge difference on your electricity bill. Another strategy to keep your HVAC system energy efficient is by simply changing out dirty air filters. Be sure that you don’t go with the least expensive filters. They usually get dirty quite frequently which has an effect on the amount of energy your system uses. When you use high quality filters, it keeps your system clean which means into big financial savings simply because it won’t need to operate as hard. Be sure not to shut the registers or air vents in your house. The key to making your system run properly is adequate air circulation. Don’t forget about your outside unit. Don’t forget to enable plenty of space all around your outdoor unit for it to ‘breathe’.

Q: I just bought a new heating and air conditioning system. Should I have a programmable thermostat installed too?
A: A programmable thermostat can work wonders on your home cooling and heating expenses. Unless you have the memory of an elephant, it turns your thermostat up or down based on your set schedule. This indicates that you don’t have the duty of leaving for the day and always remembering to change the temperature. Let’s be real. In the stress of life, many people are rushing out the door and just don’t have the time to remember things like that. Your programmable thermostat remembers for you. This saves money on heating and air conditioning expenses by turning the temperature level up or down when you are not home. You will not pay to heat or cool an empty house. It also keeps your home at a more comfortable temperature because you can get out of bed to a warmer house in the winter and in the summer, you can come home from work to a pleasingly cooled home.

Q: My furnace/air conditioner works although it is outdated. Why should I upgrade it?
A: Your heating and cooling system might run but it definitely won’t work as well when it is 12 years old. As they get older, they lose their efficiency and this is reflected on your power bill every month. When a unit reduces its efficiency, it is a gradual process so you may not notice it right away. When you upgrade to a brand-new unit, you will get the return from your investment fairly rapidly. You can save as much as 50% on operating expenditures. One of the main reasons that property owners upgrade their systems with a new one is to decrease their home heating and cooling expenses.

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 ideal to have it on the ‘auto’ setting. This setting will conserve power. The other setting, or the ‘on’ setting, does create a pleasant even temperature in your house but it takes a lot of electricity to perform this. It accomplishes this by making your fan blow constantly which translates into much higher electricity charges. The ‘auto’ setting should be sufficient for you to keep your home comfortable.
