Frequently Asked Questions | FAQ

Q: When should I replace my old heating or cooling system?

A: If your system is 10 years and older, you should consider replacing your system because it may be costing 40-60% more in energy costs each months. System 10 years ago were not as efficient as systems today. Most systems 10 years ago were under 6-10 SEER systems. Day and Night air conditioner or heat pump systems are up to 19 SEER which means they are nearly twice as efficient as your old system. Also, consider replacing your system if you are experiencing frequent repairs, hot or cold spots in your home, or a noisy system.

Q: If I have R-22 refrigerant in my A/C unit, can I get repairs made if it’s not working correctly?

A: To protect the Earth’s ozone layer, EPA regulations are restricting the refrigerants found in many home air conditioning systems. The refrigerant used in nearly all home air conditioners made before January 1, 2010, is R-22. The EPA is gradually reducing amounts of that chemical that can be produced. In fact, EPA’s regulations ban manufacturers from making new air conditioners that use R-22. But to preserve the useful life of R-22 equipment consumers have already purchased, EPA allows R-22 to be used to service existing air conditioners. Also, replacing a component with a new comparable one is allowed.

Q: What size system should I have installed in my home?

A: The right size system is paramount in your home. Too large and your system will short cycle and not control humidity correctly. Too small and it will run continuously. Please contact us for your free in-home analysis today. We will be happy to configure just the right system for your needs.

Energy Saving Tips

Change your filter regularly.

There is no "magic number of days" when it comes to changing air filters. There are a number of factors that every homeowner needs to consider: type of filter being used, how many people are living in the home, how many pets are in the home, if there is any construction and/or the overall level of pollution in the home. The easiest way to remember is this, Air Filters need to be changed as often as they are dirty.

Invest in a programmable thermostat.

A Programmable thermostat is programmed for when you leave your house and then return home. The thermostat turns off the air conditioner during the hours you are not home so that energy is not used to keep the house cool while you are at work. The thermostat will then turn back on 30 minutes before you come home so your house is at the perfect temperature when you are home. These thermostats save up to 15% on your energy bills during the winter and 10% in the summer.

Set your thermostat when you go on vacation.

Common settings is 85 degrees in the summer if you have air conditioning and 60 in the winter if you will be gone for a couple of days. These settings will keep most plants alive and will keep pipes from freezing and bursting in the winter.
