Frequently Asked Questions
My Equipment's Not Working! What Should I Check Before Calling For Service?Unfortunately, there may come a time when your equipment stops operating. When the heating system, air conditioning unit or air handler is not operating, there are a few basic things to check that may prevent from having a service tech called out to troubleshoot... (1) Check to make sure the main breaker or fuse for the equipment is not tripped or blown. (2) Make sure the "on / off" switch on the indoor system is turned "on". (3) Make sure to check / change the batteries in the thermostat (if applicable). (4) Check / change the air filter if clogged. (5) Make sure that the air vents and return air grills are not blocked. (6) Make sure the thermostat is on "heat", "cool" or "emergency heat" and the temperature is set properly. If you're in need of assistance or have any questions, request a consultation.
My System Is Working Fine! Do I Still Need To Have An Annual Maintenance On My Equipment?Furnaces, boilers, air conditioners, air handlers, water heaters and other heating and cooling products are very temperamental and require extreme care. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to have annual maintenances performed on your equipment. Safety should be a priority! No matter the age of the equipment, whether 1 or 20 years old, it should be serviced annually and taken seriously!! A furnace and air conditioning system may be cooling or heating the home comfortably, but is it safely operating? The only way to truly know is to have it professionally serviced. Maintenances help to prevent future issues that may become major due to neglect. If you're in need of assistance or have any questions, request a consultation.
How Often Should I Replace My Air Filter?The lifespan of an air filter will vary from location to location. The "type" of air filter present will also need to be taken into consideration. Each household will be different in many ways. For example, some people may smoke, some households may have pets, some households may be under temporary construction etc. How often the equipment operates plays a major role in the lifespan of an air filter as well. Typically a 1" pleated air filter will generally need to be replaced every 30-90 days depending on the application. A 5" air filter will tend to last longer. The average lifespan of a 5" air filter is 6 months to a year, again depending on the application. It is very important to look at all of the factors and change the air filter accordingly. If you're in need of assistance or have any questions, request a consultation.
I'm Confused! What Type Of Thermostat Should I Choose?There are several types of thermostats on the market today. They range from the simple and basic non-programmable style to the more complex smart-communicating wi-fi thermostats. Choosing the proper thermostat for the application depends on the type of equipment present as well as the customers' preference. It's important to get the maximum performance out of the equipment and the correct thermostat will help achieve this goal. It's always a good idea to have a professional evaluate and see which thermostat best suits the application. If you're in need of assistance or have any questions, request a consultation.
How Do I Know Whether To Replace The Equipment Or Repair The Equipment?Age plays a huge role when it comes to heating and cooling equipment. The average life of a system is roughly 17-22 years. This will vary depending on how well the system has been maintained over the years. Some repairs are costly and are considered major such as evaporator coils, condenser coils, compressors, variable speed motors, certain circuit boards etc. Depending on the age of the equipment, the extent of the repair and equipment warranties, it may be more economical to upgrade the system altogether. If you're in need of assistance or have any questions, request a consultation.
When Changing Out My Equipment, Should I Replace All Of The Equipment At The Same Time?When it's time to replace your equipment, whether it be a furnace, air conditioner, air handler etc., there are many things to consider. Cost, efficiency, sound, age of the existing equipment and so much more plays a huge role in the decision making. If by chance the furnace needs to be replaced and is, lets say 17 years old, and the air conditioner works fine, but is the same or around the same age as the furnace, it would be in your best interest to replace them both. Replacing and pairing systems together will ensure you get the best in efficiency, comfort and could be very beneficial when it comes to rebates. If you're in need of assistance or have any questions, request a consultation.
Do I Really Need A Carbon Monoxide Detector?When operating equipment such as furnaces, boilers, generators, stoves, water heaters, fireplaces and space heaters for example, the proper ventilation is required. Without proper ventilation, these energy sources can become extremely hazardous. Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas that is odorless, colorless and deadly. Over the years, many have perished from this deadly gas simply because a carbon monoxide detector was not present to detect extreme levels that were life threatening. A carbon monoxide detector is without question a very important, if not the most important device to have and MUST be present in every home and on every floor in the home. If assistance is needed in choosing or installing a carbon monoxide detector, request a consultation.
Should I Cover My Air Conditioner Or Heat Pump In The Winter Time?This is a question that is often asked. The unit outside known as the "condenser", is designed to withstand extreme weather conditions such as frigid temperatures, rain, snow and ice. Covering the "entire" condenser will trap moisture which promotes mold and mildew growth, and invites rodents seeking warmth and shelter in the winter months. It is not necessary to cover the unit. However, if you live in an area with extremely harsh winters, heavy snowfall, a lot of leaves, seeds, nuts or other debris that can penetrate the inside of the condenser, you can purchase a specially designed condenser cover and/or apply a piece of plywood on top with the proper support. Always remember to uncover the condenser in the springtime. Heat pumps should not be covered due to the fact that they can run all year long. If you're in need of assistance or have any questions, request a consultation.
Is It Necessary To Have A Whole House Humidifier Installed?The winter months can be brutal! During the deep cold the structure can become extremely dry which can cause damage to wood, create static electricity, cause sinus issues, bloody noses and a whole list of other problems. When operating the heating system paired with a whole house humidifier, the moisture level in the air becomes much more comfortable which will eliminate many structure issues. A whole house humidifier is necessary and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! If you're in need of assistance or have any questions, request a consultation.
Is It Necessary To Have A Whole House Dehumidifier Installed?Whole house dehumidifiers are an essential add-on to heating and cooling systems. They are designed to remove excess moisture and help to reduce the humidity level in the air. They also help with indoor air quality, allergies, heavy air and stuffiness. They minimize the risks of mold growth, provide more efficient cooling, lower the cooling costs and assist in controlling overall comfort. A whole house dehumidifier can be very beneficial and should definitely be considered when trying to maintain complete comfort.
