How Can I Keep My Home Warm During the Winter?
Call a professional HVAC company you trust to inspect, clean and maintain your heater. They’ll look at the pilot light, motor fan, and other parts for problems.
How Can I Keep My Home Cool During the Summer?
Change the air filter every six months to avoid clogs in the air conditioner so it works efficiently. If you notice leaks or warm air from the AC unit, call an HVAC technician to inspect and repair it.
How Can I Improve the Air Quality in My Home?
You can improve indoor air quality with air purification and dehumidification to breathe easier without risking health and safety. These services eliminate mold, pet dander, allergens, bacteria, and other contaminants from the air.
How Often Should I Schedule HVAC Maintenance?
About twice a year in the Spring and Fall so a HVAC technician can identify any issues throughout the warm and cold seasons. Preventative maintenance checks further help you avoid disruptions or breakdowns.
When Should I Call for HVAC Repairs?
Call for HVAC repairs if you notice loud banging, grinding, or whistling noises, uneven heating, foul odors, or unusually high energy bills.
Can I Replace My Furnace Without Replacing My Air Conditioner?
Yes! You can replace your furnace without replacing your air conditioner. A trusted HVAC company can install new furnaces, without touching your AC (unless requested).
How Do I Know Which HVAC System I Have?
If you don’t know what type of heater or air conditioner you have, you can find the make, model, and serial number on the exterior of the equipment. From there, you can find product and service manuals online.
How Long do HVAC Units Last?
Your heater and cooling system should last 10 to 25 years with proper maintenance service.
How Do I Get More Water Pressure?
A quick and easy way to get more water pressure is to adjust the pressure-reducing valve close to your water meter. If it’s low, make adjustments to your regulator.
What Should My Water Pressure Be?
Your water pressure should remain between 30 and 80 psi, or pounds per square inch. If it’s significantly low, call a plumber to inspect the plumbing system and sewer lines for backups.
How Can I Prevent Frozen Pipes?
To avoid frozen pipes in the winter, keep your thermostat above 68 degrees. You always want warm air to circulate near the pipes. Another tip is to let your faucets run throughout the day to maintain waterflow.
