Spoiler title


Q: What does HVAC stand for?
A: You may have heard this phrase before. It is generally used in the field to refer to your heating and cooling system. It literally stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Q: What type of care do I need to do on my cooling and heating system?
A: The most effective approach to keep your unit functioning efficiently 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 successfully maintaining your system. Make sure that, as a property owner, that you are very conscious of this and keep your system clean. Don’t forget to schedule a tune-up in the preseason. One really should be set up in the spring for your AC and one more ought to be arranged in the fall for your heating system.
Q: I have heard of the dangers of carbon monoxide. Is this something I have to be concerned about?
A: When you have a carbon monoxide leak at home, it is a risky scenario. It can result in serious health risks, including things like casualties. Carbon monoxide is not something that you can observe or smell. Make sure to get a CO sensor in your home. On top of that, you can reduce the chances of a risky circumstance like this by having an HVAC service company perform suitable upkeep and care on your unit.
Q: What does IAQ stand for?
A: IAQ is a term that house owners should be aware of. It is a term that represents Indoor Air Quality. In the tv news and media, outdoor air pollution is a familiar theme. However, indoor air pollution presents more of a hazard to homeowners than outdoor air pollution. Indoor air pollution is defined as the amount of pollution that exists within a structure specifically your home. Exposure to these pollutants is more prevalent than you might realize. Newly constructed houses are built so that there is not nearly enough ventilation or exchange between outdoor and indoor air. This is good for energy efficiency but it does lead to a challenge for air quality. A house owner can minimize this concern by having a system that is made to greatly improve air quality.
Q: What are the causes of 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 push air throughout my home?
A: Air is extracted through vents by a fan. At that point, the air goes through your air ducts that ends up in your system’s air handler. It is returned to the rooms in your home through the air vents or registers that are commonly found on your wall, ceilings or floors.
Q: Should I cover up my outdoor unit throughout the winter?
A: Your exterior unit is constructed to handle the harshest of winter seasons so it is not recommended to cover your unit. If anyone were to mistakenly switch on the air conditioner when your machine is covered, it can ruin the condenser and all of its components.
Q: What should I turn my thermostat to: on or auto?
A: If you wish to make your house as energy efficient as achievable, then be sure to set your thermostat to the ‘auto’ setting as an option. This setting makes the fan work only when it is necessary. The ‘on’ option makes your fan work nonstop. Although this is pleasant when you would like to have air constantly filtered through your home, it uses considerably even more energy. This, is turn, will increase your power statements.
Q: I have purchased a brand new furnace and air conditioning unit. For how long should I expect it to last?
A: Ordinarily, a brand-new furnace or air conditioning unit can last about 10-20 years when it is adequately taken care of. That being said, some property owners prefer to remove and replace them far sooner than that because as a system ages, it ends up being less efficient. Life spans of units are different. Proper installation and maintenance are the main aspects that impact the life expectancy of an unit. By adequately caring for it, you will make sure that your system runs more efficiently. Be sure to find a Sterling Forest HVAC company, like SOS XTREME Comfort®, to maintain your heating and cooling system.
Q: I just purchased a new heating and cooling unit. Should I have a programmable thermostat put in too?
A: A programmable thermostat can work wonders on your home cooling and heating expenses. Unless you have the memory of an elephant, it turns your thermostat up or down based on your set schedule. This indicates that you don’t have the task of leaving for the whole day and trying to remember to change the temperature. Let’s be honest. In the stress of life, most people are running out the door and simply don’t have the time to recall things like that. Your programmable thermostat remembers for you. This saves money on heating and cooling fees by turning the thermostat up or down when you are not home. You will not pay to heat or cool an empty house. It also keeps your home at a more comfortable temperature level given that you can get out of bed to a warm house in the winter and in the summer, you can get home from work to a suitably cooled home.
Q: I am aware of that I need to have my furnace checked out in the autumn and my air conditioning system inspected in the early spring. Why can’t I have both of these assessed at the exact same time?
A: The entire point of having your system checked out is to make sure that it is performing properly. 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 Sterling Forest HVAC technician will be able to check them right before they are going to be operated the most. It will provide more of a correct result of how your system is doing during that time of year.
Q: Will an updated Sterling Forest HVAC system decrease my electrical bills?
A: A state-of-the-art system, particularly when compared to older systems, are dramatically more energy efficient. It can save you as much as 50% on operating costs. Newer styles have a 13 SEER which is the minimum efficiency standard by law.
Q: I want to landscape my yard in the spring. Can I plant near my outside unit?
A: Landscaping your backyard can be enjoyable and a fabulous way to beautify your outside areas. When it concerns your exterior equipment, you should take care. It requires adequate space to be able to breathe. This signifies that you have to give 18 inches just above and all around your unit for proper air circulation. This will allow it to run as needed to ensure your home will feel comfortable. If you take the chance of planting too close to it, then you could possibly wind up requesting a preventable repair job.
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’ setting. Although this setting generates more of a uniform temperature all throughout your house, it most definitely will make your electricity bills rise.
Q: Can I close off doorways and vents to areas that aren’t continuously used?
A: Do not shut rooms or vents. Although it may seem like common sense, it is a waste of your finances. Your unit is matched to the duct system in your house. When you close off rooms and air vents, it builds a lot of pressure and ramps up your blower, the heart of your HVAC system. This causes it to be less efficient and increases your home energy invoices.
