Before purchasing a system you should always make sure that it is sized properly. Our professional HVAC installation technicians will provide a heat load calculation to determine the right size and make the appropriate recommendation as to the equipment that will suit you best. Remember, bigger is not always better.
How Often Should I Replace My Filters?
For optimum filtration and efficiency, it is recommended that you replace your disposable filters at least once a month. Also, washable filters should be cleaned once a month.
Is an HVAC System With More Capacity Better?
No. A larger system with more capacity costs more to operate and delivers less comfort. An air conditioner is the least efficient when it is first turned on. A system with too much capacity will be turning on and off repeatedly, running in numerous short cycles, therefore causing it to be less efficient.
How Can I Increase the Efficiency and Add to the Lifespan of My Home’s HVAC Systems?
One of the best things you can do is to clean and replace your filters frequently. Also, a system cools and heats more evenly when the blower is in the “on” position. The blower provides constant air movement throughout the property and allows for better filtration. Finally, screens, drapes, shades, or shutters should be installed on windows that are exposed to extreme sunlight.
What Size HVAC System Should I Have?
Contrary to popular belief there are a number of factors that have to be taken into account and there is no rule of thumb for sizing a system to a residential or commercial property. The only way to ensure the size of the system you purchase will meet the needs of your property without exceeding them is to have your home’s individual heating and cooling needs evaluated by a professional technician.
Why Is It Important to Set Up Regular Maintenance on My HVAC System?
You wouldn’t buy a brand-new car and expect to never have to change the oil, put air in the tires, and check out any unusual noises, would you? In the same way that a vehicle requires regular maintenance for optimal performance, a cooling and heating system should be regularly inspected by an experienced and qualified HVAC contractor.
How Can I Control Energy Costs?
Heating and cooling your property can represent as much as 45% of your utility bill. Choosing highly efficient, industry-leading, and innovative technology, your home comfort systems can go a long way toward reducing your utility costs.
When selecting a new system, pay close attention to the AFUE of the furnace and the SEER rating of the air conditioner. The higher the AFUE or SEER, the higher the savings.
Beyond efficiency ratings, other important factors to consider include:
- Zoning – A zoning system can greatly lower your cooling and heating costs. With zoning, you no longer have to pay to cool or heat areas of your property that are rarely used.
- Maintenance – In order to ensure that your system operates at peak efficiency schedule annual HVAC maintenance appointments.
Programmable Thermostats – According to the data offered by the Department of Energy, a programmable thermostat can reduce your cooling costs by up to 25% and heating costs by up to 35%.
