FAQs

Q: What does HVAC stand for?
A: HVAC is an acronym that stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Q: What kind of maintenance do I have to do on my heating and cooling unit?
A: The solution to HVAC upkeep is correct circulation. This implies that anything that restricts airflow should be quickly resolved. Things like dust, debris, or dirt should be removed. Your air filters should typically be clean for proper circulation. A yearly tune-up on your AC should be planned in the spring and a yearly tune-up on your furnace should be set up in the fall.
Q: Why do I have to replace my air filter?
A: You can’t possibly use an HVAC system without changing the air filter out when it gets filthy. The purpose for this is since your system demands adequate air flow in order to run. A filthy air filter will stop your system from running properly. The filter acts kind of like a lung and it filters out impurities from your air. It keeps your house free from dust, allergens, and even germs. Additionally, a dirty air filter puts pressure on your system which causes it to work harder. This equates into higher home heating and cooling expenses. There are different types of filters readily available. Make sure to figure out the consistency at which your filter needs to be changed. It should be printed on the packaging label of your filter. We recommend that you check your filters on a once per month basis. Regardless of what the label says, you will require to change your filter as frequently as required. If you see that it is dirty, then be sure to swap it out for a new one. Factors such as pets or dirty climates can make a big difference on how often it has to be changed. An expert Orangeburg HVAC company will be able to advise you on what variety of filter works best for your type of system.
Q: How do I figure out when to change out my air filter?
A: We recommend that you change your air filter on a month-to-month basis. Nevertheless, it is better to change your filters as frequently as needed so your system operates with most effective efficiency. Examine them more regularly if you live in a dusty climate or have animals. If your filter looks dirty, then make sure to replace it immediately.
Q: How does my HVAC system push air around my home?
A: Air is drawn through vents by a fan. Subsequently, the air moves through your ducts that winds up in your system’s air handler. It is returned to the spaces at home through the vents or registers that are normally located on your wall, ceilings or floors.
Q: What should I turn my thermostat to: on or auto?
A: You should really set your thermostat to the auto setting. This makes it possible for the fan to run only when it is necessary. Most house owners select this setting because it is more energy efficient. The on setting may be used when you wish to have air continuously filtered all through your property. The air is circulated and it can deliver a more even temperature all throughout your home. Although, it does take additional energy to do this. Modern furnaces have fan motors that have this function.
Q: I need to purchase a new heating/cooling system. How do I get the correct one for me?
A: The very first aspect that you have to take into consideration is overall size. The system will need to be the appropriate size for your home. Many homeowners make the miscalculation of purchasing units that are too large, thinking that the system will heat up or cool their home more speedily. Other property owners buy units that are too little, believing that their units will use a lot less energy and as a result, save money. This is a big no-no. Your unit must complement the size of your home so that it can properly heat or cool it. A Orangeburg, New York HVAC pro, like SOS XTREME Comfort®, has the expertise to match your unit. Also, be sure to explore operating costs of your system with your contractor. You want a system that, basically, pays you back. Make sure to invest in a system that, on a monthly basis, offsets the expense of the unit with the help of your energy bill.
Q: I just invested in a new heating and air conditioning system. Should I have a programmable thermostat put in also?
A: Homeowners who have installed programmable thermostats are pleased that they did. The reason why is simply because they are saving money. You can adjust this style of thermostat to increase or decrease the temperature level in your home based on your routine. This certainly works when you have a regular schedule. Outside of saving you money on your energy expenses, a programmable thermostat can also provide further comfort. It can heat up your house right before you get out of bed in the early morning!
Q: I recognize that I will need to have my furnace inspected in the autumn and my air conditioning system checked in the spring season. Why can’t I have both tuned up together?
A: Your system needs to be evaluated to make sure that it is operating without problems. It also ensures that it is functioning properly and safely. It is ideal to check each system right before you need them the most. The fall and the springtime will permit an HVAC expert to fully run your system and will give your licensed contractor a more precise result of how your system is doing.
Q: My furnace/air conditioner runs although it is older. Why should I change it?
A: Even if your heating and cooling system is doing the job, when it is more than 12 years old, it stops functioning as adequately. Because of this, you are paying more on your monthly power bill in order for it to try to keep your home comfortable. New systems can save as much as 50% on operating expenses so they pay themselves off in a very short time. It might possibly not be an expenditure that you anticipated but you will be happy that you did. An additional feature of an updated unit is that it will keep your home more comfortable.
Q: I like to landscape my property in the early spring. Can I plant near my outdoor unit?
A: When you landscape your lawn, you have to pay very close attention to the area around your outdoor air unit. Be sure your plants are at least 18 inches to 2 feet from your unit. This includes the area on the sides of your unit and the area above your unit. Your outdoor unit needs proper air circulation surrounding it in order for it to operate the way that you want it to. House owners often make the mistake of planting too close to their unit or forgetting to trim back the plants around their unit. This has led to costly and avoidable repairs.
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’ position. It is advisable to have it on the ‘auto’ setting. This setting will conserve more energy. The other setting, or the ‘on’ setting, does create a good uniform temperature throughout your house but it takes a lot of energy to accomplish this. It carries this out by making your fan blow all the time which equates into increased power charges. The ‘auto’ position should be sufficient if you want to keep your home comfortable.
Q: Can I close off doors and vents to areas that aren’t frequently used?
A: Do not close off spaces or air vents. Despite the fact that it may seem like common sense, it is a waste of your resources. Your unit is matched to the duct system in your house. When you shut off rooms, it creates a lot of pressure and ramps up your blower, the heart of your HVAC system. This will make it less efficient and increases your home power costs.
