Frequently Asked HVAC Questions

Connect with the Experts

How can I increase efficiency and the lifespan of my HVAC system?

One of the best ways to improve your system’s performance is to frequently clean or replace air filters. Other ways include purchasing a programmable thermostat, keeping curtains drawn or installing shades in rooms that are more exposed to sunlight, and not blocking airflow by closing vents in multiple rooms.

Does adjusting the thermostat up or down really save money on energy bills?

Simply resetting the thermostat when you are asleep or away from home can save money on heating and cooling bills. By adjusting the thermostat four-to-six degrees either up (in the summer) or down (in the winter) reduces the total run time of the heating and air system, leading to a reduction on the energy bill. A programmable thermostat can aid in money-saving measures by allowing you to set the temperature on a daily and seasonal basis.

How often should I clean and or / replace air filters in my unit?

In order for your HVAC system to operate at its best, filters should be changed once they start to look discolored. If the filter looks dirty, it is dirty. Filters should be changed on a monthly basis when the system is in high use, such as during winter and summer months, and every other month during lower-use times in the spring and fall. If you want a smarter way to determine when it needs replacing, install an air filter gauge.

What regular maintenance does an HVAC system require and how often should it be serviced?

Maintain air flow by keeping dust, dirt, and debris away from any system. Keep air filters clean and heat exchangers and coils free of restrictions. Ideally, a system should be serviced twice a year — once before the summer cooling season and once before the winter heating season.

What size system does my home require?

Size is everything when it comes to your HVAC system. An energy auditor can do a “Manual J” calculation on your home. This calculation surveys your entire home and includes how much insulation there is, how old your system is, and what kind of windows your home consists of and which direction they are facing. This calculation will tell you exactly what size system your house needs.
