Q. How do I know if our A/C unit is big enough for our home?
A. The correct size based on running a computer generated load for your home. Typically in our market we size the A/C based on a 90 degree day. We expect the A/C to run most of the day on a 90 degree day to maintain 70 degrees inside.
Q. How often should I schedule heating and cooling service for my HVAC system?
A. We recommend having your heating & cooling system serviced twice in the year to keep it working at maximum efficiency, to find and fix small problems before they become major issues, and to avoid needing service during extreme weather conditions when everyone needs help and the wait for service can be longer than normal.
When it comes to a residential heat pump, homeowners can expect one to last 10 to 20 years with proper maintenance. Learning how to maintain your home's heat pump isn't difficult and will save you money now and in the future.
Is a lack of whole-house humidification causing problems for your household? Low humidity can cause uncomfortable health issues like dry sinuses, allergy flare-ups and itchy skin. Dry air also has a damaging effect on your home's structure and furnishings, causing cracked trim and floorboards, furniture that may fall apart as solvents dry, or cracks that emerge in protective coatings or the wood itself.
