Frequently Asked Questions

What does HVAC stand for?

Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning.

What regular maintenance do heating and air conditioning systems need?

Whether it’s an indoor or outdoor unit, you must keep all filters clean and heat exchangers and coils free of restrictions, because dirt, dust, and debris can affect your HVAC system.

We recommend that your heating and cooling system be checked and serviced twice a year, typically once in the spring and once in autumn for a tune-up. Ask us about our maintenance agreements which will cover these tune-ups and more!

Why should I change my filter regularly?

Regularly changing your filter will help to improve indoor air quality and keep your unit running effectively.

How often should I have maintenance done on my air conditioner?

Your air conditioner needs maintenance at least once a year, with spring or early summer being the best times. This will ensure maximum efficiency and enable our technicians to foresee any possible problems that may occur in the near future.

How do I know if my system is working properly?

Below are some signs that you might have a problem that needs to be serviced:

-Strange or loud noises coming from your unit

-Taking a long time to cool down or heat up your home

-Unit is constantly running

-Not cooling or heating up all areas of your home

-Unusual spikes in usage on your billing statement

If you experience any of these, give us a call right away, as in most cases, the longer you delay, the worse underlying problems can get.

What are the advantages of a programmable thermostat?

Programmable thermostats are more accurate and efficient than thermostats that contain mercury. They are hassle free and allow you to automatically control the temperature in your home at different times of day by setting temperatures in advance based on timing or certain degrees that are reached in your home.
