Heating, AC Repair & Installation

What size HVAC system should I have?

Unlike most people believe, there is no one size fits all sizing system for homes or businesses. The size of the HVAC unit depends on many factors. The only way to know the right size for your home or office is by having a licensed professional evaluate your heating and cooling needs and recommend an HVAC unit for you.

How much does installing a new AC unit cost?

AC units come in different makes, models, and sizes. For this reason, it might be hard to determine how much it will cost you to replace your old unit. The best way to tell is by doing a thorough evaluation of your home and existing equipment. Here are 5 Ways To Reduce Air Conditioning Costs This Summer. Contact us today to get a quote.

AC and Heating Maintenance

What maintenance should I do for my AC?

The most important maintenance you can do for your unit is changing filters regularly. Ground-mounted units should be kept free from clutter, debris, landscaping, or weeds that might grow too close to the unit restricting airflow. Any additional maintenance should be done by a professional.

How often should I change my filters?

For the best filtration, we recommend that you change your filters at least once a month. For the units with washable filters, you should clean them once a month.

Ductwork

What is the purpose of an air duct?

Air ducts are responsible for distributing cooled or warmed air throughout your home. Without ductwork, there would be no point in installing an HVAC unit. Properly designed and installed ductwork saves you a great deal on energy costs, and helps prevent premature failure of your HVAC system.

How do I tell if my ducts are leaking?

There are many ways to tell if your ducts are leaking. You can tell by finding certain rooms in your home never reach the desired temperatures. However, the best way is to contact a professional to help you assess the performance of your ductwork.

How do I fix leaking ducts?

Unlike most people believe, the best way to repair your ductwork is not by using duct tape. Contact a trained professional to properly seal your air ducts and reduce energy costs.
