FAQs

Q: What does HVAC signify?
A: HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.

Q: What kind of care do I have to do on my heating and cooling system?
A: The secret to HVAC routine service is efficient circulation. This implies that anything that limits airflow should be rapidly resolved. Things like dust, debris, or dirt should be removed. Your air filters should normally be clean for proper circulation. An annual tune-up on your A/C should be arranged in the springtime and an annual tune-up on your heating unit should be scheduled in the autumn.

Q: Why do I need to replace my air filter?
A: Replacing your air filter is one of the primary components to a properly working HVAC system. It enables your system to have air flow. An added advantage is that it also greatly improves indoor air quality by always keeping your home free from dust, allergens, and germs. The rate of changing your filter varies depending on the kind of filter that you buy. Some call for monthly replacement whereas, others may have to be replaced more often. Additionally, the environment in which you live also makes a big difference . A knowledgeable Mahwah HVAC service company will be able to inform you on what kind of filter works best for your style of system.

Q: How do I identify when to switch out my air filter?
A: The need to replace your filter changes from one home to another. Some homes are dustier or have furry household pets which will necessitate a filter change more often. It is suggested to inspect it on a monthly basis. Some residences must change their filter every month. Some homes will need to change it every 90 days. This holds true if the household is using a superior quality filter and certain variables that make a filter dirtier more frequently are not present. Regardless, check it once a calendar month and if it looks filthy, then be sure to change it out.

Q: What are the causes of indoor air pollution?
A: Indoor air pollution is an issue that should be addressed by all house owners. This is particularly the case for house owners who have a newly built house. These homes are constructed so tightly that they do not ventilate as well as older homes do. A tightly built home enables the highest energy efficiency. Having said that, it implies that house owners ought to have a whole house ventilation system to prevent being exposed. Contributors to indoor air pollution are:

  • Carpeting
  • Furniture
  • Drapes or draperies
  • Upholstery
  • Chemical cleaning products

These items release fumes and gases that accumulate. The build-up of these gases and fumes is the primary reason for indoor air pollution.

Q: Should I cover up my exterior unit through the winter months?
A: Your outside unit should not be covered during the cold season. Regardless of whether a blizzard is expected, your unit can handle it. These cooling and heating systems are built to stand up to even the coldest of weather. Covering it can bring about some unexpected complications. If someone were to unintentionally start up the air conditioner, it can ruin the condenser and its components.

Q: How can I make my system work even more efficiently without needing to exchange it?
A: When you don’t prefer to replace your system, you should properly maintain it. This means that you, as the homeowner, must do some preventative maintenance on your system and schedule a tune-up every 6 months. It is advisable to organize one in the spring season just before the heat hits and plan one in the autumn, just before the winter weather arrives. By accomplishing this, you can greatly improve the energy efficiency of your design by approximately 5% -10%. This makes a huge difference on your electricity bill. Another method to keep your unit energy efficient is by merely changing out dirty air filters. Be sure that you don’t select the least expensive filters. They normally get filthy quite frequently which has an effect on how much electricity your HVAC system uses. When you pay for top notch filters, it keeps your system clean which turns into big financial savings for the reason that it won’t have to run as hard. Make sure not to block off the registers or vents in your house. The answer to making your system run properly is sufficient air circulation. Do not forget about your outside unit. Be sure to allow for plenty of space around your outdoor unit for it to ‘breathe’.

Q: I understand that I ought to have my furnace looked at in the autumn and my A/C looked at in the spring. Why can’t I have the two tuned up at the same time?
A: Your equipment must be evaluated to make sure that it is running correctly. It also ensures that it is working properly and safely. It is best to test each system before you need them the most. The fall and the early spring will enable an HVAC company to completely work your system and will give your contractor a more detailed result of how your system is working.

Q: Will a new Mahwah HVAC system reduce my electrical bills?
A: New HVAC machines are even more energy efficient than their previous comparable versions . By requirement, they have to have a 13 SEER or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. This signifies that they are extremely energy efficient. There are even systems that have a much higher SEER rating than 13. The greater the rating, the more efficient that it is. With a 13 SEER, you can save as much as 50% on operating fees.

Q: I want to landscape my yard in the early spring. Can I plant near my exterior unit?
A: You can plant close to your unit but we suggest that you leave 18 inches around your unit clear from any vegetation. This permits adequate air circulation which your system needs to have for it to perform efficiently. Alternatively, your system could overheat which can result in an unnecessary service phone call.

Q: The temperature inside of my house 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’ setting. It is advisable to have it on the ‘auto’ setting. This setting will conserve more power. The other setting, or the ‘on’ setting, does create a good balanced temperature throughout your home but it uses a lot of electricity to accomplish this. It does this by making your fan blow constantly which equates into increased energy bills. The ‘auto’ position should be adequate if you want to keep your home comfortable.
