Q: What does HVAC imply?
A: HVAC means heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Q: What kind of preventative maintenance do I want to do on my heating and air conditioning system?
A: The most ideal means to keep your device operating effectively is by being sure that it has proper air circulation. When you have filthy air filters, obstructed registers or air vents, or debris around your exterior unit, then you are not effectively maintaining your system. Be sure that, as a property owner, that you are very aware of this and keep your system clean. Make sure to arrange a tune-up in the preseason. One must be scheduled in the spring season for your air conditioner and one more ought to be arranged in the autumn for your heating unit.
Q: Why do I have to replace my air filter?
A: Changing your air filter is among the primary aspects to an effective working HVAC system. It makes it possible for your system to have air flow. An added convenience is that it also improves interior air quality by helping keep your home free from dirt, allergens, and germs. The rate of changing your filter varies depending on the style of filter that you purchase. Some require monthly replacement whereas, others may have to be replaced more frequently. Additionally, the environment in which you live also makes a huge difference. A professional Montvale HVAC service provider will be able to instruct you on what kind of filter works best for your type of system.
Q: What are the reasons for indoor air pollution?
A: Contributors to indoor air pollution can range. Some might actually surprise you. A number of items in your house have substances that send out fumes or gases. These include:

  • Carpet
  • Furniture pieces
  • Drapes or curtains
  • Upholstery
  • Cleaning products

Since newer homes are constructed so tightly, they do not breathe as well as older homes do. While this may make for a remarkably energy efficient home, it also stimulates to indoor air pollution. The build-up of gases and fumes trigger indoor air pollution. This can be prevented by having an HVAC system that allows proper airflow. With a whole house ventilation system, a property owner can experience an extremely energy efficient home without the problem of indoor air pollution.
Q: How does my HVAC system force air all over my home?
A: An HVAC system uses a fan to pull air in. The air that is pulled in is then driven to your air handler. Once it has heated or cooled down the air, then it drives it back through your ductwork and out of your vents. Vents or registers are generally located on your walls, ceilings, or floor surfaces.
Q: Should I cover my outside unit over the winter season?
A: Your outside machine should not be covered during the winter weather. Regardless of whether a snowstorm is predicted, your unit can handle it. These HVAC systems are manufactured to hold up against even the coldest of weather conditions. Covering it can result in some unplanned issues. If anybody were to unintentionally start up the air conditioner, it can damage the condenser and its components.
Q: What should I turn my thermostat to: on or auto?
A: If you really want to make your house as energy efficient as possible, then make sure to set your thermostat to the ‘auto’ setting as an option. This setting makes the fan function only when it is needed. The ‘on’ setting makes your fan work continuously. Even though this is great when you prefer to have air constantly filtered through your house, it uses significantly more power. This, is turn, will spike your electric statements.
Q: I will need to buy a new heating/cooling system. How do I choose the best one for me?
A: The number one feature that you ought to think about is size. The unit has to be the proper size for your home. Many people make the error of investing in systems that are too large, thinking that the system will warm up or cool down their home more quickly. Other property owners purchase units that are too small, assuming that their units will use much less energy and for that reason, save money. This is a big no-no. Your unit must match the size of your home so that it can properly heat or cool it. A Montvale, New Jersey HVAC pro, like SOS XTREME Comfort®, has the expertise to match your unit. Also, make sure to go over operating expenses of your system with your contractor. You want a system that, basically, pays you back. Make sure to pay for a system that, on a monthly basis, offsets the charges of the unit through your utility bill.
Q: I understand that I need to have my furnace assessed in the fall and my AC unit tuned up in the early spring. Why can’t I have the two checked out at the exact same time?
A: The whole objective of having your system checked is to make sure that it is performing adequately. This implies it is capable of keeping your house comfortable while being energy efficient. By checking your system both in the autumn and in the early spring, a Montvale HVAC service provider will have the ability to analyze them right before they are going to be put to use the most. It will give them more of a correct reading of how your system is functioning during that time of year.
Q: My furnace/air conditioner does the job though it is outdated. Why should I upgrade it?
A: There are a couple of reasons to upgrade your system. In your instance, when your system is more than 12 years old, then it does not work as efficiently. This is simply because systems lose their efficiency as they age. This translates into higher power expenses given that it has to work more to keep your home comfortable. A brand-new unit can really make an improvement on your electric charges and your home’s comfort levels. By keeping your old unit, you are paying far more every month than you ought to be. You can save as high as 50% of your operating costs. This indicates that you will get your return on your investment quickly. You might not prefer to invest in a new unit but you will be glad that you did when you notice that it pays itself off rapidly and then, you will have the capacity to spend your money on other things outside of home cooling and heating 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: If your fan seems to be running all of the time, then it is more than likely that your thermostat is on the ‘on’ position. Even though this setting generates more of a uniform temperature within your house, it definitely will make your power bills escalate.
