Q: What does HVAC signify?
A: HVAC is an acronym that represents heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Q: What kind of care do I want to do on my heating and cooling system?
A: The trick to HVAC care is adequate ventilation. This means that just about anything that restrains airflow should be rapidly addressed. Things like dust, debris, or dirt should be removed. Your air filters should constantly be clean for proper circulation. A yearly tune-up on your AC should be set up in the spring and a yearly tune-up on your furnace should be set up in the fall.
Q: Why do I need to replace my air filter?
A: Replacing your air filter is one of the vital aspects to a properly working HVAC system. It allows your system to have air flow. An added feature is that it also enhances indoor air quality by always keeping your home free from dirt, allergens, and germs. The rate of changing your filter varies depending on the style of filter that you get. Some need monthly replacement whereas, others may have to be changed more often. Additionally, the environment in which you live also makes a huge difference. A skilled Monsey HVAC service company will be able to instruct you on what kind of filter works best for your style of system.
Q: How do I figure out when to replace my air filter?
A: The need to replace your filter changes from one residence to another. Some home or apartments are dustier or have furry household pets which will necessitate a filter change more often. It is suggested to check it on a monthly basis. Some homes should change their filter on a monthly basis. Some households will need to change it every 90 days. This is the case if the residence is using a first class 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 make sure to change it out.
Q: Should a loud noise coming out of my AC and heater be something that concerns me?
A: Regardless of whether your cooling and heating system seems to be functioning properly, your neighbors will thank you for fixing your noisy HVAC system. Clearly, they do not wish to know whenever your system turns on or off. Additionally, there is enough sound pollution in the world and the last thing that you need to do is be a contributor to it. A loud system can possibly be brought on by a couple of factors. They are:
- Make and model of the unit
- Is your compressor insulated or not?
HVAC units that are assembled these days are constructed with a quieter design. The good news is that you can analyze one model to another by having a look at their sound ratings. This will really help you understand which one to choose for the reason that you don’t want one of the louder models if it is located right outside your bedroom window. That might not go over so well in the middle of the night.
Q: I have an idea of the hazards of carbon monoxide gas. Is this something I should really be concerned about?
A: When you have a carbon monoxide gas leak in your home, it is a detrimental scenario. It can cause serious health risks, involving casualties. Carbon monoxide is not something that you can see or detect. Don’t forget to get a CO detector at home. On top of that, you can avoid a dangerous problem similar to this by having an HVAC service provider perform proper upkeep and care on your unit.
Q: Should I cover my exterior unit throughout the winter season?
A: Do not cover your system. These machines are constructed to endure the chilliest of the winter seasons. If a scenario were to take place where an individual in your house activates the AC when it is covered, then lots of problems can arise. Primarily, your condenser and its parts can be majorly damaged.
Q: What should I turn my thermostat to: on or auto?
A: You can set your thermostat to the auto setting. This enables the fan to run only when it is required. Most property owners prefer this setting because it is the most energy efficient. The on setting may be used when you prefer to have air continually filtered throughout your property. The air is dispersed and it can give a more even temperature all throughout your home. Even so, it does take more power to do this. Modern furnaces have fan motors that have this capability.
Q: How can I make my system work even more efficiently without needing to exchange it?
A: When you don’t prefer to upgrade your system, you ought to properly maintain it. This means that you, as the property owner, should do some preventative maintenance on your system as well as arrange for a tune-up every 6 months. It is a good idea to arrange one in the springtime right before the hot weather hits and plan one in the fall, just before the cold weather rolls in. By doing so, you can increase the energy efficiency of your HVAC system by roughly 5% -10%. This makes a huge difference on your power bill. Another strategy to keep your unit energy efficient is by just simply changing out dirty air filters. Be sure that you don’t get the least expensive filters. They commonly get dirty quite frequently which has an effect on the amount of power your heating and cooling system uses. When you pay for high quality filters, it keeps your system clean which turns into big financial benefits because it does not have to run as hard. Don’t forget not to block off the registers or vents in your house. The solution to making your system run adequately is suitable air circulation. Always remember about your exterior unit. Make sure to permit suitable space all around your outside unit for it to ‘breathe’.
Q: I have to get a new heating/cooling system. How do I pick the appropriate one for me?
A: When it relates to your HVAC unit, size does matter. Some people believe that if they get a large unit, then they will have more of a comfortable home or that it will cool/heat their house more rapidly. Others think that if they buy a small unit, then they will be saving money on their electrical power monthly bills. The truth is that you need a system that matches the ducting system in your house. This is the only way that a unit will successfully cool or heat your property. To know what size you really need to have, you will need to talk to a Monsey, New York HVAC licensed contractor. They will be able to figure out what size your system needs in order to keep your house comfortable while using the least amount of power. They will also have the capacity to establish what the operating expense will be of a new system. You want to look for a system that makes your financial investment worth the cost. Many modern systems are so energy efficient that the financial savings that you gain on your power bill will eventually pay off the expense of an updated system.
Q: I just bought a new cooling and heating system. Should I have a programmable thermostat installed also?
A: People who have installed programmable thermostats are glad that they did. The reason why is simply because they are saving money. You can adjust this type of thermostat to raise or reduce the temperature level in your house based on your routine. This truly works when you have a regular routine. Beyond saving you money on your energy bill, a programmable thermostat can also provide further comfort. It can warm up your house before you get out of bed in the morning!
Q: Will an updated Monsey HVAC system decrease my electricity bills?
A: A modern Monsey HVAC system will most certainly save you money. It will reduce your home cooling and heating costs. A system’s efficiency is determined by its SEER rating. SEER is a term in the HVAC industry that means Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. New models are required by regulation to have a minimum 13 SEER rating. With a SEER 13, operating costs could be reduced by as much as 50%. This suggests that, yes, your brand new system will definitely lower your utility bills.
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: Check your thermostat. Homeowners mistakenly set it to the on position rather than the auto position. The on position makes your fan to blow non-stop which takes more power.
Q: Can I close off doorways and vents to rooms that aren’t ordinarily used?
A: Do not close off areas or air vents. Despite the fact that it might seem like common sense, it is a waste of your money. Your unit is matched to the duct system in your house. When you shut off areas, it builds a lot of pressure and ramps up your blower, the center of your HVAC system. This causes it to be less efficient and increases your home energy invoices.
