Spoiler title


Q: What does HVAC mean?
A: You may have heard this expression before. It is often used in the niche to refer to your heating and cooling system. It literally stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Q: What kind of maintenance do I want to do on my heating and air conditioning system?
A: The most suitable means to keep your unit functioning effectively is by ensuring that it has proper air circulation. When you have filthy air filters, obstructed registers or air vents, or debris around your outdoor unit, then you are not properly maintaining your unit. Make sure that, as a property owner, that you are very conscious of this and keep your system clean. Make sure to plan a tune-up in the preseason. One must be scheduled in the spring season for your air conditioner and one more must be planned in the autumn for your heater.
Q: Why do I need 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 calls for sufficient air flow in order to operate. A dirty air filter will prevent your system from working properly. The filter acts somewhat like a lung and it filters out pollutants from your air. It keeps your house free from dust, allergens, and even germs. Additionally, a filthy air filter puts stress on your system which causes it to work harder. This turns into higher home heating and cooling costs. There are various types of filters available. Be sure to identify 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 need to change your filter as often as required. If you see that it is filthy, then be sure to change it out for a new one. Variables such as household pets or dusty environments can make a difference on how frequently it needs to be changed. A knowledgeable Port Jervis HVAC company will be able to inform you on what type of filter works best for your kind of system.
Q: Should a loud noise coming out of my cooling system and heating unit be something that concerns me?
A: A noisy HVAC system can be irritating to you and your neighbors. Even though your unit seems to be operating decently, no one wants to know when your system is kicking on or off. This is especially the case when your unit is in close distance to a bedroom window. Also, sound pollution is a real problem and a noisy HVAC system definitely triggers it. The main reason that your machine is so loud is generally because of the following:

  • Your unit is much older
  • The type of unit you have
  • Your compressor-insulted or not

Thankfully, new systems have sound ratings that you can review. Most contemporary units are manufactured to be quieter than their earlier counterparts. Sound ratings will help you as to which model might work best for you. A quieter model will be preferable if there is a bedroom close by.
Q: I have become aware of the risks of CO. Is this something I should really be concerned about?
A: A CO leak is certainly dangerous. It can trigger dangerous repercussions. Since a leak is undetectable, it is recommended to get a CO alarm in your home. You should also carry out proper routine maintenance on your system to avoid a carbon monoxide leak.
Q: What does IAQ stand for?
A: IAQ is a term that all house owners should be aware of. It is a word that indicates Indoor Air Quality. In the news reports and media, outdoor air pollution is a popular theme. That being said, indoor air pollution poses more of a risk to house owners than outdoor air pollution. Indoor air pollution is described as the quantity of pollution that exists within a structure such as your home. Direct exposure to these pollutants is more common than you might realize. Newly constructed homes are built so that there is not enough airflow or exchange between outdoor and indoor air. This is terrific for energy efficiency but it does present a challenge for air quality. A house owner can prevent this concern by having a system that is made to make improvements to air quality.
Q: What are the reasons for indoor air pollution?
A: As surprising as it may seem, many items contribute to indoor air pollution. Items such as carpeting, furniture, drapery, and even upholstery have compounds in them that are constantly emitting fumes or gases. The cleaning products that you use may contribute to indoor air pollution. Since newer homes are more energy efficient, this also means that they are not ventilated the way that older homes in the past do. They do not breathe. Therefore, the buildup of these gases and fumes cause indoor air pollution. Newer homes need a whole house ventilation system to combat the possibility of indoor air pollution so that homeowners can rest assured of their safety while enjoying their extremely energy-efficient home.
Q: How does my HVAC system force air around my home?
A: Air is pulled through vents by a fan. Subsequently, the air travels through your ductwork that winds up in your system’s air handler. It is returned to the spaces at home through the air vents or registers that are normally situated on your wall, ceilings or floors.
Q: Should I cover up my outside unit over the winter weather?
A: Your outdoor unit is designed to cope with the harshest of winters so it is not suggested to cover your unit. If an individual were to mistakenly start up the air conditioning unit when your machine is covered, it can ruin the condenser and all of its components.
Q: I have purchased an updated furnace and air conditioning system. How much time should I presume it to last?
A: When your system is adequately taken care of, you can count on your brand new furnace or AC system to work for about 15-20 years. Please note that machines become less energy efficient as they grow older. This is among the leading causes that people opt for a replacement. Also, HVAC systems do differ and therefore, their lifespans do too. The most significant factors that determine how long a system will run is genuinely adequate installation and maintenance. Undoubtedly, a system that is not adequately installed or cared for will not last as long as one that is. They also will not run as effectively. You can get effective care for your HVAC system by speaking with a Port Jervis HVAC business, like SOS XTREME Comfort®.
Q: I just invested in a new heating and air conditioning system. Should I have a programmable thermostat put in too?
A: Homeowners are becoming more aware of the electric use in their homes. A useful product, such as a programmable thermostat, is assisting homeowners become more aware of their house heating and cooling costs. It allows homeowners to change the temperature of their house based on their needs and agendas. This saves them a great deal of money just because they don’t need to always remember to turn the thermostat up or down before going out of the house or until going to bed. In the craziness of life, many individuals fail to remember to do this. As an example, you can schedule your thermostat to warm your home before you rise in the morning hours as opposed to waiting for you to get out of bed to do it. You can also do this before you get home from your job. It is considerably a convenient, economical device.
Q: I comprehend that I will need to have my furnace tested in the fall and my air conditioner assessed in the springtime. Why can’t I have both of these evaluated together?
A: The entire aim of having your system checked is to make sure that it is performing suitably. This means it is capable of keeping your house comfortable while being energy efficient. By checking your system both in the autumn and in the spring, a Port Jervis HVAC company will have the chance to inspect them right before they are going to be run the most. It will provide more of a proper reading of how your system is operating during that time of season.
Q: Will a brand-new Port Jervis HVAC system reduce my electricity bills?
A: New HVAC machines are far more energy-efficient than their prior comparable versions were. By requirement, they must have a 13 SEER or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. This indicates that they are incredibly energy efficient. There are even systems that have a greater SEER rating than 13. The higher the rating, the more energy efficient that it is. With a 13 SEER, you can save as much as 50% on operating charges.
Q: The temperature inside of my house 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 operating all of the time, then it is quite likely that your thermostat is on the ‘on’ position. Although this setting creates more of a balanced temperature within your house, it most definitely will make your electrical power bills rise.
Q: Can I shut doors and vents to areas that aren’t continuously used?
A: There is a popular idea among house owners that if you shut off doors or vents to rooms that are not generally used, then you will decrease your energy bill. This is definitely incorrect. Your unit is installed to match the ductwork in your house. When you shut an air vent or doorway, then the air needs to go somewhere. It produces a lot of pressure which then your blower, or the heart of your HVAC system, needs to make up for. It operates harder and increases your electrical bill.
