FAQ’s

Should I cover my outdoor unit in the fall and winter?
Covering the outdoor unit in the winter months prevents unwanted debris from accumulating on the outdoor unit and later impeding airflow to the outdoor unit. At the same time accidentally operating the outdoor unit with a covering in place could cause system damage. It is recommended that high voltage power always be disconnected from the outdoor unit whenever a cover or anything obstructing airflow is introduced.
So does it save energy to close vents in unused rooms?
The answer, unfortunately, is no. You are better off keeping the vents open to ensure the unit operates efficiently. Closing vents impedes the systems designed airflow requirements which can cause premature failure.  You could get away with partially closing vents to satisfy individual comfort needs.  This way over the lifetime of your system you can save on energy use and repair costs.
I feel like my A/C isn’t working, what can I check?

First check your thermostat set points, is it set to “cool?” Are the batteries new? Is the filter clean? Is the furnace blower running? Is the outdoor unit running?  Although you as the homeowner might not be able to address all these things on your own, they will help your technician diagnose the problem much quicker and might actually be able to advise you over the phone on the next step as the homeowner.

What is the water-like trickling sound when my furnace is on?

High efficiency 90% furnaces have a by-product of water vapor. This water vapor returns to the furnace through the exhaust PVC and is then drained. The sound is normal.  In some cases also, it can be the condensation from you A/C Evaporator Coil.  If at anytime you notice water pooling around your furnace, call us as soon as possible.

When should furnace filters be changed?

Many factors can cause air filters to become dirty at various intervals, so it depends on your location. For instance, homes near factories or airports or homes with pets may accumulate dust or debris more often. Furnace filters should generally be changed when there is visible dirt accumulated on the filter which is typically every 3 months, in most cases.  Airflow is restricted by dirty filters and this can cause increasing loss of heating and air conditioning efficiency, and may even damage the HVAC equipment.

Why should I perform preventive maintenance?

Heating and cooling systems work incredibly hard to perform their functions for your household. The constant stopping, starting and continual operation can wear down a machine quickly and unexpectedly if the proper care and maintenance is delayed. However, by performing preventive maintenance, or servicing your system regularly, you can maximize the life-cycle of your heating or cooling unit and guard against many unexpected failures.

Preventive maintenance inspections performed on a regular basis can uncover leaks, rust, rot, soot, frayed wires, corroded electrical contacts and much more.
