FAQs

Q: What does HVAC mean?
A: You may have heard this term 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 kind of preventative maintenance do I need to do on my heating and air conditioning unit?
A: The trick to HVAC care is correct airflow. This suggests that anything that reduces airflow should be promptly fixed. Things like dust, debris, or dirt should be cleared away. Your air filters should constantly be clean for proper circulation. An annual tune-up on your A/C should be planned in the springtime and an annual tune-up on your heating unit should be set up in the autumn season.

Q: Why do I have to replace my air filter?
A: Changing your air filter is just one of the vital components to a properly working HVAC system. It allows your system to have air flow. An added perk is that it also greatly improves indoor air quality by helping keep your home free from dust, allergens, and germs. The rate of changing your filter varies depending on the kind of filter that you buy. Some call for monthly replacement whereas, others may need to be changed more frequently. Also, the climate in which you live also makes a huge difference. A professional Tafton HVAC company will be able to advise you on what variety 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 worries me?
A: You should most definitely do something about a loud sound coming out of your HVAC system. First and foremost, you do not need to be a contributor to sound pollution. Though your system might be performing well, your neighbors will appreciate not having to listen to your equipment each time it starts up. There are many variables that result in a loud system. They include:

  • Age
  • Make of the unit
  • Whether the compressor is insulated

Most modern-day units are a whole lot more quieter than their earlier comparable versions. Having said that, make sure to compare makes and models and look at the sound ratings for each. You do not want to install one that is a little louder than another option particularly if it is located right next to your bedroom window.

Q: What does IAQ imply?
A: IAQ is a term that is used in the industry that stands for Indoor Air Quality. Although the majority of people have typically heard of outdoor air pollution, indoor air pollution is a problem. This term signifies that the amount of air pollution that exists in a home or even a building. According to the American Lung Association, direct exposure to pollutants takes place more frequently indoors than in an outdoor environment by a significant amount. This is why it is important to have an HVAC system that greatly improves IAQ and really aids homeowners who struggle with respiratory issues and allergy symptoms.

Q: What are the reasons for indoor air pollution?
A: Contributors to indoor air pollution can range. Some might actually surprise you. Specific items in your home have substances that release fumes or gases. These include:

  • Carpets
  • Furniture
  • Drapes or window 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 an exceptionally energy efficient home, it also stimulates to indoor air pollution. The build-up of gases and fumes cause indoor air pollution. This can be minimized by having an HVAC system that allows proper ventilation. With a whole house ventilation system, a property owner can experience an incredibly energy efficient home without the concern of indoor air pollution.

Q: Should I cover up my outdoor unit throughout the winter season?
A: Your outside unit should not be covered during the winter season. Regardless of whether a blizzard is predicted, your unit can handle it. These HVAC systems are made to stand up to even the chilliest of weather. Covering it can create some unplanned complications. If a person were to mistakenly turn on the air conditioning unit, it can damage the condenser and its parts.

Q: I have purchased a new furnace and air conditioner. How much time should I expect it to last?
A: When your system is properly maintained, you can look forward to your brand new furnace or air conditioning system to last for about 15-20 years. Please note that machines become less energy efficient as they get older. This is among the fundamental causes that property owners prefer an upgrade. Also, heating and cooling systems do differ and therefore, their lifespans do too. The most prevalent reasons that determine how long a system will work is really correct installation and maintenance. Naturally, a system that is not appropriately installed or cared for will not last as long as one that is. They also will not work as efficiently. You can get ideal care for your HVAC system by contacting a Tafton HVAC service company, like SOS XTREME Comfort®.

Q: I like to landscape my lawn in the spring season. Can I plant near my outdoor unit?
A: You can grow plants close to your unit but we suggest that you leave 18 inches all around your unit unobstructed from any plants. This permits sufficient air circulation which your unit needs in order to run without problems. Alternatively, your HVAC system could overheat which causes an unwanted service phone call.
