A geothermal HVAC system uses the constant temperature of the ground to heat or cool your home, improving energy efficiency and reducing environmental impact.
An evaporator coil is a component of an air conditioning system that removes heat from indoor air, allowing the cooled air to be circulated throughout your home.
Signs of a refrigerant leak include reduced cooling or heating capacity, hissing or bubbling noises, and ice buildup on the refrigerant lines or coils.
A smart thermostat allows you to control your HVAC system remotely using a smartphone or other device and can learn your temperature preferences to save energy.
Yes, many HVAC systems have built-in dehumidifiers or can be equipped with them to control humidity levels.
A heat exchanger is a component of a furnace that transfers heat from the combustion process to the air being circulated throughout your home. It’s important for efficient and safe furnace operation.
An HVAC professional can perform a load calculation to determine the appropriate size of your system based on factors such as square footage, insulation, and climate.
A ductless mini-split system is an HVAC system that doesn’t require ductwork and consists of an outdoor compressor and one or more indoor air handlers.
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio and measures the cooling output of an air conditioner or heat pump per unit of energy. A higher SEER rating indicates greater energy efficiency.
Using a high-quality air filter, regular duct cleaning, and sealing air leaks can reduce the amount of dust in your home.
Look for licensed, insured contractors with experience in the type of system you need installed or repaired.
High energy bills, frequent repairs, and uneven heating/cooling can indicate that your HVAC system is using too much energy.
The average lifespan of an HVAC system is 10-15 years, but proper maintenance can extend the lifespan.
You can prevent frozen pipes by keeping your home at a consistent temperature, insulating pipes, and running water through them regularly.
Signs of good insulation include even temperatures throughout the home, low energy bills, and minimal drafts.
Zoning your HVAC system allows you to control temperatures in different areas of your home independently, reducing energy waste and increasing comfort.
A furnace heats air, which is then distributed through ductwork, while a boiler heats water, which is then circulated through pipes and radiators.
If your system is more than 10-15 years old, needs frequent repairs, or is no longer heating or cooling effectively, it may be time for a replacement.
A programmable thermostat allows you to set temperatures for different times of day, reducing energy usage when you’re not at home or sleeping.
A heat pump is an HVAC system that can both heat and cool your home using a refrigerant cycle. It differs from a traditional HVAC system in that it doesn’t use a separate furnace for heating.
Common signs include reduced airflow, strange noises, strange odors, and poor performance.
It’s recommended have your HVAC system serviced at least once a year, ideally before each heating and cooling season.
It’s best to change your HVAC air filter every 1-3 months, depending on usage and filter type.
Regular maintenance, sealing air leaks, and upgrading to a high-efficiency unit can improve energy efficiency.
