Q: What does HVAC imply?
A: You may have heard this term before. It is commonly 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 preventative maintenance do I want to do on my heating and cooling system?
A: As a house owner, taking care of your system is definitely not rocket science. There are a few details that you have to always remember. The key feature to be aware of is suitable airflow. This means that you must check your air filters often and change them out when they are dirty. It also means that you need to make sure that your air vents aren’t obstructed by items such as household furniture. As a matter of fact, don’t even close up air vents to rooms that are less frequently used. You are making your system run harder than need be, using more energy to do so, and throwing away money. Lastly, don’t forget to schedule an annual tune-up on your AC system. This should really be carried out in the early spring. Arrange an annual tune-up on your heating unit in the autumn season.
Q: How do I know when to change out my air filter?
A: We recommend that you change your air filter on a once a month basis. Nevertheless, it is ideal to change your filters as frequently as necessary so that your system works with most effective efficiency. Examine them more consistently if you reside in a dusty environment or have family pets. If your filter appears dirty, then be sure to replace it immediately.
Q: How do I find out when my AC, furnace, or HVAC system is still under warranty?
A: Your equipment should have a label on it. Locate the label and find the manufacture date. Generally, if it is no more than 5 years old, then it is still under warranty. This tends to change by manufacturer and installation company. Your HVAC service company, like SOS XTREME Comfort®, should be able to tell you and confirm the status of your warranty.
Q: What does IAQ mean?
A: IAQ is a phrase that is used in the trade that means Indoor Air Quality. Although most people have regularly heard of outdoor air pollution, indoor air pollution is a problem. This term denotes that the amount of air pollution that is present in a home or even a building. According to the American Lung Association, being exposed to pollutants occurs more frequently inside your home than in an outdoor environment by a notable amount. This is why it is important to have an HVAC system that improves IAQ and really aids property owners who deal with respiratory issues and allergies.
Q: How does my HVAC system move air all throughout my home?
A: Your HVAC system basically does the job by drawing air through your air vents. This air, then goes to your system’s air handler. The conditioned air is then pushed back into your home through your vents or registers. These vents are typically found on your walls. Sometimes, they are located on your ceilings or floor surfaces.
Q: Should I wrap my outside unit during the winter?
A: Do not cover your unit. These machines are fabricated to withstand the chilliest of winters months. If a scenario were to take place where somebody in your house activates the air conditioner when it is covered, then several issues can occur. Mainly, your condenser and its components may be majorly damaged.
Q: I have invested in a brand-new furnace and air conditioning unit. How long should I expect it to last?
A: This is based on a handful of things. When you purchase a new furnace or air conditioner, they are assembled to last almost 15-20 years. It really should be noted that units become less energy efficient as they grow older. As a result, a 12 year old machine will not be as energy efficient as a brand new one. You can really help your current system last and perform more efficiently by properly maintaining it. Good installation also contributes to the life expectancy of an HVAC system. Make sure that it is installed correctly by choosing a reputable Marlboro HVAC company, like SOS XTREME Comfort®.
Q: How can I make my HVAC system work even more efficiently without needing to exchange it?
A: Even when you do not want to change out your model, there are a couple of tasks that you can possibly do to your current unit that will help it operate more economically. A few of them are below:
- Don’t forget to arrange a tune-up in the springtime and in the fall. Research studies show that property owners who carry this out save about 5%-10% on their power monthly bills.
- Change out your filthy air filters. A dirty air filter greatly impacts the amount of energy that your system needs to work. A dirty air filter will make your system work harder which costs you much more. You really should shop for top quality energy efficient filters. They keep your system cleaner while improving energy efficiency and enhancing indoor air quality.
- Do not shut or close your air vents. The secret to a more energy efficient system is proper air flow. Your equipment needs to breathe in order for it to carry out its job.
- Keep your outside unit clear and clutter-free. Take out anything that might limit air circulation surrounding your system.
Q: I understand that I need to have my furnace assessed in the fall and my AC looked at in the spring season. Why can’t I have both checked out at the exact same time?
A: You use your HVAC system the most in the hot season and in the wintertime. Therefore, you must have your air conditioning unit examined the early spring and your heater tested in the fall. A Marlboro HVAC expert will get more of a proper result when each system is about to be put to use the most. This reduces the chances of pricey repairs and it guarantees that your system is performing at peak efficiency.
Q: Will a new Marlboro HVAC system decrease my power bills?
A: A brand new Marlboro HVAC system will certainly save you money. It will reduce your home cooling and heating expenses. A system’s efficiency is established by its SEER rating. SEER is a term in the HVAC niche that stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. New models are required by law to have a minimum 13 SEER rating. With a SEER 13, operating charges could be reduced by as much as 50%. This means that, yes, your updated system will certainly bring down your utility bills.
Q: My furnace/air conditioner gets the job done although it is older. Why should I removed and replace it?
A: Your heating and air conditioning system might do the job but it surely won’t work as economically when it is 12 years old. As they age, they lose their efficiency and this is reflected on your power bill monthly. When a unit loses its efficiency, it is a gradual process so you may not realize it right away. When you invest in a brand-new unit, you will get the repayment from your investment rather rapidly. You can save as much as 50% on operating charges. One of the main reasons that homeowners upgrade their systems with a new one is to minimize their home heating and air conditioning costs.
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’ setting. It is best to have it on the ‘auto’ setting. This setting will conserve electricity. The other setting, or the ‘on’ setting, does create a nice balanced temperature in your home but it takes a great deal of electricity to accomplish this. It carries this out by making your fan blow continuously which translates into increased electrical power statements. The ‘auto’ setting should be adequate just to keep your home comfortable.
