Spoiler title


Q: What does HVAC imply?
A: You may have heard this expression before. It is regularly used in the industry to refer to your heating and cooling system. It literally stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Q: What type of preventative maintenance do I need to do on my heating and cooling system?
A: The trick to HVAC maintenance is correct air movement. This indicates that anything that limits airflow should be rapidly addressed. Things like dust, debris, or dirt should be removed. Your air filters should generally be clean for proper circulation. A yearly tune-up on your AC should be scheduled in the spring season and a yearly tune-up on your furnace should be set up in the fall time.
Q: Why do I have to change my air filter?
A: You can’t possibly use an HVAC system without changing the air filter out when it gets filthy. The main reason for this is because your system demands proper air flow in order to function. A dirty air filter will prevent your system from working properly. The filter acts somewhat like a lung and it removes pollutants from your air. It helps keep your home free from dust, allergens, and even germs. Furthermore, a dirty air filter puts stress on your system which causes it to work harder. This translates into higher home cooling and heating costs. There are different types of filters readily available. Make sure to figure out the consistency at which your filter needs to be replaced. It should be printed on the packaging label of your filter. We recommend that you check your filters on a month-to-month basis. Despite what the label says, you will need to change your filter as frequently as required. If you see that it is filthy, then be sure to swap it out for a new one. Variables such as household pets or dirty climates can make a huge difference on how often it needs to be changed. An experienced Montgomery HVAC service company will be able to inform you on what variety of filter works most effectively for your kind of system.
Q: How do I recognize when to replace my air filter?
A: There is no particular answer to this question. This is simply because one house will require a different quantity of filter changes than another. A property that has animals or is located in a dusty environment will need to have more filter changes. Regardless, it is a good idea to look at them once a month. Mark the calendar as a reminder. Life can get very busy and remembering something like taking a look at your HVAC filter can slip through the cracks. When you take a look at it, thoroughly examine it. Be sure that it does not appear dirty. Never let more than 90 days between air filter changes. Moreover, when it does appear dirty, be sure to swap it out even if you just removed and replaced it a couple of weeks ago. The key to a properly working HVAC system is proper filtration.
Q: How do I have an idea when my AC system, central heater, or HVAC system is still under warranty?
A: Your equipment should have a label on it. Locate the label and find the manufacture date. Usually, if it is no more than 5 years old, then it is still under warranty. This has the tendency 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 manufacturer’s warranty.
Q: How does my HVAC system force air all around my home?
A: An HVAC system uses a fan to pull air in. The air that is pulled in is then pushed 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 generally positioned on your walls, ceilings, or floors.
Q: What should I set my thermostat to: on or auto?
A: You should utilize the ‘auto setting’. This means that air will be dispersed throughout your house on an ‘as need’ basis. It is the more energy efficient setting of the two. When you set your thermostat to the ‘on’ position, it runs all the time. Although this produces a balanced temperature throughout your home, it also uses a lot more energy. It is recommended to use the ‘auto’ setting so that you don’t have high home cooling and heating charges.
Q: I have installed an updated furnace and air conditioner. How much time should I expect it to last?
A: When your system is properly taken care of, you can look forward to your new furnace or air conditioning system to run for about 15-20 years. Please note that units become less energy efficient as they age. This is among the key reasons that consumers go with an upgrade. Also, units do differ and for that reason, their lifespans do too. The greatest things that determine the length of time a system will operate is genuinely appropriate installation and maintenance. Of course, a system that is not adequately installed or cared for will not last as long as one that is. They also will not operate as effectively. You can get proper care for your HVAC system by speaking with a Montgomery HVAC service company, like SOS XTREME Comfort®.
Q: How can I make my HVAC system work more efficiently without needing to exchange it?
A: The most effective strategy to always keep your system running economically is by simply caring for it.

Additionally, you will want to have your heating system serviced in the fall before the cold winter season comes. Studies prove that property owners who don’t maintain their system two times a year, have less efficient systems by practically 5% -10%. Likewise, as a homeowner , you should replace your filters as often as needed. Be sure to choose filters that have high efficiency ratings in order to keep your system clean. Your system requires to breathe so do not block off your register or vents. Keep debris away from your exterior unit. You need to allow for proper circulation.
Q: I just got a new heating and air conditioning unit. Should I have a programmable thermostat installed also?

A useful apparatus, like a programmable thermostat, is enabling homeowners become more aware of their house cooling and heating costs. It lets homeowners to regulate the temperature of their property based on their necessities and agendas. This saves them a great deal of money just because they do not have to always remember to turn the thermostat up or down just before going out of the house or until going to sleep. In the craziness of life, numerous people forget to do this. As an example, you can set your thermostat to warm up your property just before you wake up in the morning hours rather than waiting for you to get out of bed to do it. You can also do this right before you get home from work. It is considerably a convenient, economical device.
Q: I comprehend that I have to have my furnace checked in the autumn and my cooling system tuned up in the spring season. Why can’t I have both looked at together?
A: You use your HVAC system the most in the summer months and in the winter season. Consequently, you have to have your air conditioning system examined the early spring and your heater tested in the fall. A Montgomery HVAC professional will get more of an accurate analysis when each system is about to be utilized the most. This reduces the chances of pricey repairs and it guarantees that your system is functioning at peak efficiency.
Q: I like to landscape my property in the spring season. Can I plant near my outside unit?
A: When you landscape your yard, you ought to pay very close attention to the space around your outdoor air unit. Be sure your plants are at least 18 inches to 2 feet from your unit. This includes the area around your unit and the area above your unit. Your exterior unit needs correct air circulation all around it in order for it to function the manner in which you need it to. Homeowners often make the error of planting too close to their unit or neglecting to trim back the plants around their unit. This has resulted in expensive and unnecessary repairs.
Q: The temperature inside of my home is fine but my unit’s fan seems to be working all of the time. What should I do?
A: If your fan seems to be operating all of the time, then it is possible that your thermostat is on the ‘on’ position. Even though this setting creates more of a balanced temperature all throughout your house, it definitely will make your power bills rise.
Q: Can I close off doorways and air vents to areas that aren’t ordinarily used?
A: Do not shut rooms or vents. Despite the fact that it may seem like common sense, it is a waste of your money. Your unit is matched to the duct system on your property. When you close off the air flow, it forms a lot of pressure and ramps up your blower, the heart of your HVAC system. This causes it to be less efficient and raises your home electric bill.
