Here are the Answers to Your HVAC System FAQsAn HVAC system may, at first glance, seem complex and hard to understand. While they are high-tech pieces of equipment, there are some basics that will give you what you need to get the most out of your heating and cooling systems. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about HVAC systems.

What is HVAC?

HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. You might sometimes see an R added to the end, which stands for Refrigeration. Most homeowners’ main exposure to HVAC will be through their air conditioner, furnace, or heat pump.

What is HVAC sizing?

HVAC sizing is the process of determining how much heating or cooling your home needs, then choosing an HVAC system with the functional capacity to provide it. Load calculations, which are sophisticated analyses of residential characteristics and residents’ comfort needs, are an important part of sizing.

How can I improve HVAC system function?

The best way to improve HVAC equipment function is through regular preventive maintenance. You should have your local trusted HVAC pro do maintenance on your systems at least once a year–in the spring for cooling systems and in the fall for heating equipment.

Are high-efficiency HVAC systems really worth it?

The short answer is yes, they are. They can slash monthly heating and cooling bills by a substantial percentage. Homeowners can often recover the cost of the system in these monthly savings along by about the halfway point of the system’s expected life.

Should I care about air filters?

Air filters help keep the air in your home clean by capturing and holding particulates such as dust, pollen, and dander. They also contribute to maintaining the airflow your HVAC system needs to function. Dirty, clogged air filters can’t do these jobs and can even contribute to damage to your HVAC equipment.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
